Watch as Jermall Charlo and Brandon Adams address the press, two days before their interim WBC middleweight title fight from NRG Arena in Houston. Texas
“I plan on delivering something explosive like I always do,” Charlo told those in attendance on Thursday, “I want to give my fans in Houston and around the world a show to remember the rest of their lives.”
“I know that Brandon has worked hard with Dub Huntley and Freddie Roach, but I did the same with Ronnie Shields. The work is put in, and I’m ready. I’m going to deliver a statement,” said the newly announced undisputed WBC world middleweight champion.
“This is a legacy fight for me because I have an opponent coming to my backyard and I’m not letting him take this moment from me.
“Brandon Adams made it to this level, so he’s definitely on my level. This isn’t ‘The Contender’ though, this is ‘The Lions Only Show’.
“I believe Jermall is everything that he has shown and proven to be,” said Adams in the heart of Charlo’s hometown. “That’s what I’m up against and that’s the kind of challenge that I want on Saturday.
“The object to boxing is to hit and not get hit, any elite fighter, they do that pretty well. I plan to do that. Jermall is a champion, you can’t take anything from his line of work and what he has done. But since I am the guy that hasn’t been around, or the guy that people don’t know much about, I have a great opportunity to showcase a little bit more of who I am. I am excited to do that.”
Charlo would conclude by saying, “I’m a fan friendly fighter. I’m looking to become a world champion on Saturday night and I’m going to leave it all on the line. It’s one fight at a time and this is the biggest opportunity yet.”
