Hurd: “I Can Beat The Charlos, GGG, And Canelo”
Jarret Hurd is not just the IBF/IBO/WBA junior middleweight champion, but possibly the most confident man in boxing.
Hurd, who is preparing for a December 1st return to the ring against Jason Welborn, believes that he could stop WBC junior middleweight champion Jermell Charlo, interim WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo, Gennady Golovkin, and unified middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez.
“I’m definitely going 4-0 against all of them,” said Hurd, who has also expressed interest in a 154- or 160-pound bout against left-handed IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence (24-0, 21 KOs).”
“I’m not losing, no matter what. I just have the will to win, to dig it out in the end and to pull it off. That’s how I break these fights down by my ability to break them, mentally.”
“Jermell is not better than Jermall for my style. Overall Jermall’s physically stronger than Jermell in terms of size and power. I feel like Jermell Charlo would be an easier fight for me,” said Hurd while comparing both of the Charlos.
“When I beat Jermell Charlo, I’m moving up to 160, and guess who I’m coming for? Jermall Charlo. So, you know that’s a fight possibly in the future.”
“Wins over both Charlos would put me in position for a great match with Canelo,” Hurd told reporters in an article for Boxing Scene.
“Canelo was once at 154, also, so size wouldn’t be a factor. Even though I know he’s going up to 168 to fight Fielding, I feel like I would be the bigger fighter against Canelo that night.”
“I personally think that a fight with Triple-G would be tougher for my style than Canelo. I don’t think Canelo is a bigger fighter than I am. But with Triple-G, I don’t think it will be as easy enforcing my will on him,” said Hurd.
“I feel like I can do that easier with Canelo than with Triple G, who is more physical, but I still see myself winning. I haven’t had too many people calling me out after the Lara fight, and that’s crazy. Before the Lara fight I had a lot of people calling me out. I’m starting to get the respect that I deserve.”
