Trainer: Canelo, Jacobs, GGG All Scared Of Jermall
If you asked Ronnie Shields, WBC interim middleweight champion, Jermall Charlo, is the most feared middleweight in the world.
“Canelo Alvarez is afraid of Jermall, Triple-G [Gennady Golovkin] is afraid of Jermall, and Danny Jacobs is doing all of this talking, but Danny Jacobs is afraid of him, too,” said Shields, who trains Charlo and former champion Erislandy Lara out of the Houston-based Plex Gym.
“They see that Jermall is a big, strong, skilled fighter who takes a good shot, and that he’s always in condition and ready to fight. That’s something they’re afraid of. Jermall is one helluva fighter and one tough fight for anybody that’s walking around on this planet right now, and it’s a simple as that.”
Charlo returns on December 22nd against Willie Monroe Jr and has been mandated to defend his interim WBC title against Golovkin, in what may be Golovkin’s first fight since losing to Canelo Alvarez in September of this year.
“I believe that Triple-G is going to avoid fighting Jermall, and then we’ll go straight to Canelo,” said Shields.
“Then I think Canelo’s going to avoid Jermall, and, according to the rules, he’ll have to give up his belt. And let’s see who Danny chooses to fight, next.”
“Everybody at 160 pounds, trust me, they are gonna take three-or-four looks before they sign the contract to fight Jermall,” said Shields. “That’s because they see everything that I see. They see it all, and that’s why none of them wants to fight Jermall.”
