Jermall Charlo Begins Training As Long Awaited Comeback May Finally Happen

WBC champion Jermall Charlo has begun training with coach Ronnie Shields in Houston, Texas, after his prolonged absence from the ring.

The boxer has been away from competing for a significant period, and it is likely that he will struggle with maintaining an active presence in the sport.

This is the same criticism that has been leveled against his twin brother, Jermell Charlo. During a training session, however, Jermall displayed impressive skills.

He hit the mitts with confidence, with middleweight star David Morrell observing. The reason for Charlo’s decision to avoid boxing in the last two years is not clear.

The speculation suggests that he may have had a problem with alcohol consumption and back pain. However, there is no confirmation regarding the validity of these rumors.

While that may have been the case, his critics have been wondering why the WBC didn’t remove the middleweight title from the boxer in question due to the mass inactivity.

But with his return on the horizon, he has an opportunity to set the record straight. Should Jermall decide to retain his WBC 160-pound title, he could be ordered to face his obligatory challenger, Carlos Adames.

However, if Charlo decides to move up to the 168 lb division, then there are plenty of other big names, including Canelo Alvarez. Time will tell how Charlo’s comeback fares.
