Jermall Charlo Opens Up On His Mental Health Struggles – ‘I’ll Be Back’

Jermall Charlo has opened up on his inactivity from the sport of boxing.

The current WBC middleweight champion’s last fight was all the way back in 2021. During the course of that process, Charlo beat Juan Macias Montiel via a unanimous decision.

In the aftermath, however, Charlo’s personal issues and mental health concerns raised huge questions about his welfare.

This led to suggestions that Charlo should be stripped of his title. Although that may have been the case, WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman fully supported the fighter’s attempt at getting back in the ring.

However, much more recently, Charlo was in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

He was caught on footage getting hit by Caleb Plant in an altercation that followed after Terence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr.’s weigh-in.

Although the reasons for the altercation are not clear, Charlo’s failure to retaliate was profound given that he is a boxer.

But for all the talk surrounding Charlo, the world champion reassured fans that he would be back in the ring soon.

“I can’t wait to get back in the ring. I’ll be back before the end of the year though. I promise you that. I’m getting back. I’m better now. Know what I’m sayin’?

“Everybody goes through things, you know. I faced my little adversity and the best thing about it is that I get to beat that adversity and y’all get to see the adversity,” Charlo stated
