  • Well ok, let’s see it happen! Time is now to stop the trash talk, no do-this-do-that excuses, no cherry-picking matches, no BS contractual demands hindering fights, and stop the running! Step it up and give the fans what they want!

  • this should be a very good fight both have excellent skills 5/50 fight

    • Anthony!!! Totall agreed man…. The bigger brother needs to take a page from the smaller brother lol

      • I’m not impressed until I see a fight with someone like A Terence Crawford. It’s time to be about it, not talk about it.

        • Terence Crawford is wa welterweight boxer. Furthermore, it’s hard to get a Crawford fight because his promotional team have rated too high. Shawn Porter would fight Crawford, but they offer Porter far less than he deserve for that fight. I think they are afraid of Porter.

        • Chrissy: i would love to see that BUT i seriously doubt Crawford wld take that fight. Crawford prefers to fight mediocre guys OR guys moving up to his weight class. I seriously doubt he wld move up to fight MEL. He wld gain my respect if he did though…

    • haha, 1 brother does a good thing is an opportunity to trash the other Charlo. Tell this to GGG!!! Canelo avoided Jermall for the undisputed title at 160. They have to be willing to fight.

  • Canelo will destroy you. You are not ready for him……you had a weak performance last fight.

    • Canelo is at 168. Jermell is at 154. Jermell KOd Rosario in his previous fight to unify 3 of the 4 “major” belts. I’m assuming you’re talking about Jermall.

    • You got the wrong guy here. In this case you can actually use the excuse “they look alike”.

    • C’mon Diaz< Give The Man A Chance To Fight Canelo, Like Canelo Gave Triple Ggg A Title Shot 2 Times

  • The NABE strikes again with Charlo requiring another undefeated champion to come to his home state, which is notorious for having one of the most corrupt commissions on Earth.

    • Chris: agreed my dude.. Jermell unlike Jermall does take more chances with the guys he is willing to fight, but he prefers them to come to him. Call it home court advantage at its finest (well for Jermell, anyway).

  • Dang!! Time is running out, but I am still leaning towards Castano because he has that nasty, pressure style that may limit Jermell’s punch output and energy level. Sh*t, let me think on this a little more.

  • It will be a long night for Charlo, say goodbye to those belts

  • This dude is so scared of Benevidez he’ll dry up like a prune so David can’t make his weight, whata Punk

  • >
