Hurd To Attend Charlo-Harrison
Jarrett Hurd has made it known that after he defends his titles against Jason Welborn on December 1st, that he wants Jermell Charlo for a unification fight.
So much so, that Hurd has already looked past his third defense of his light middleweight titles on the Deontay Wilder- Tyson Fury undercard, and looks to be ringside when Jermell Charlo defends his WBC light middleweight title against Tony Harrison on December 22nd
“I will be in attendance when Jermell Charlo fights Tony Harrison, and listen, if they ask for me to come up into the ring, then I’m coming up,” said Hurd, who won his title by ninth-round TKO over Harrison in February 2017, to BoxingScene.com.
“Hopefully the Jermell Charlo fight’s one that can be made sometime during 2019, maybe next summer, because I know I can definitely stop him.”
“For the record, this will be officially the first fight where I’ll be able to watch Charlo from ringside because when we fought together at Barclays, he was against Lubin and I was on the undercard against Trout, so I didn’t get to watch his fight,” said Hurd.
“I’ve seen interviews where Jermell Charlo’s saying I’ve been at all of his fights, but this will be the first fight where I’ll be coming live to watch him perform. Of course, I’ll be comparing his performance against Tony Harrison to mine, just like I did with our mutual fights against Austin Trout.”
“Tony Harrison bounced back from the loss to me with three straight wins, and he looked really good in his last fight beating [former champion] Ishe Smith, who looked better in his previous loss to Julian Williams than he did losing to Harrison,” said Hurd of Charlo’s December 22nd challenger.
“Now, Tony and I are friends, so he’s my boy, and I want him to go out there and do his thing because he’s my guy. But I also don’t want Tony to win because, deep down inside, I wanna be the first man to beat Jermell Charlo.”
