Charlo suffered a unanimous-decision loss after moving up two weight classes from 154 in an attempt to become undisputed at 168. However, never at any moment in the fight did it appear that Charlo would threaten Canelo. The American was on the back foot for most of the fight before being dropped in the seventh round, which summed up his performance.
But just as his performance was not the best, the same can be said for the relationship between the Charlo brothers. Despite both having won world titles, they reportedly did not speak at all through Jermell’s training camp for Canelo. But that has not stopped the impact of the loss from touching Jermall.
“My kids are hating to go to school right now. They don’t wanna go to school because everybody keeps trying to bully them because their uncle lost. That’s crazy… They’re trying to bully my kids because their uncle lost. But at the end of the day, it’s boxing, you win some, you lose some and I’m down with everything,” Charlo
Nevertheless, Jermall may have the chance to set the record straight. Prior to Jermell facing Canelo, he had been linked with the fight. However, his long absence from the ring following his struggles with mental health meant he was not ready in time. But Jermall did hint that a fight could be made with his following comments.
“Canelo what’s up man, I’ll see you soon,” Jermall
