Jermell Charlo Released After Family Assault Charge

Jermell Charlo was reportedly arrested on a misdemeanor assault.

According to BoxingScene.com, the ex-undisputed junior middleweight champion was apprehended in Texas on December 16, 2023. The records show he was taken to Fort Bend County jail, after which he was released. The Daily Mail alleges he assaulted a member of his family.

The news comes after Charlo’s loss to Canelo Alvarez. The American jumped up two weight classes to take on the Mexican to become undisputed at 168. The difference in weight was telling as Charlo lost a one-sided fight via a unanimous decision. The defeat was made worse since his WBO title at 154 pounds was stripped, with Tim Tszyu becoming the full champion. Charlo still holds the WBA and WBC belts at junior middleweight, but there are question marks over his next steps.
