Hearn Makes Offer To Charlo For One Fight Deal
While Canelo Alvarez may not face Demetrius Andrade this May, Eddie Hearn has another world champion in mind for a unification fight.
In a conversation with Boxing Scene, Hearn has offered WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo a “huge” and substantial” offer to fight the WBO champion Andrade this May in a similar vein to Hearn’s one-fight $7 million deal with an option to fight Jessie Vargas early next year.
“Whatever [Charlo] wants,” emphasized Hearn on the terms of a deal for Charlo to fight his champion.
“I can’t at the moment, deliver the mega-fight to Andrade that he needs. I’ve tried. The guys are not queuing up to fight him,” said Hearn.
“It’s kind of like [Charlo and Andrade] need each other. Charlo has got no one to fight, and no one really wants to fight Andrade. So you have to give Charlo all of the money to say ‘come fight with us.’ Because really, Andrade is going to miss the boat in terms of his prime to have these kind of fights. Demetrius does need that marquee fight, and it’s not for lack of trying.”
