Charlos to be honored in Houston

Houston’s own world champions, unbeaten WBC middleweight world champion Jermall Charlo and unified WBC, WBA and IBF 154-pound World Champion Jermell Charlo, will receive a proclamation from Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner before Jermall holds an open to the public media workout ahead of his showdown against Juan Macias Montiel headlining action live on Showtime Saturday from Toyota Center in Houston in a Premier Boxing Champions event.

The Charlo Twins, along with WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman, will also present Mayor Turner with a special Juneteenth WBC belt during the proclamation ceremony. The event will feature local boxing community members and students from area high schools in attendance.

  • I’m waiting for the proclamation where they will be fighting a RING magazine Top 10 contender. That’s always a special occasion when a Charlo fights a Top 10 contender.

    • I would agree that Jermall’s competition level has not been satisfying as of late for the most part. He has fought several lately who probably weren’t in The Ring Top 10, but he did recently beat Derevyanchenko’s a$$ far more convincingly than Jacobs or GGG did. Several on this board were predicting a Derevyanchenko win. Why he’s not getting any major fights isn’t clear, so that may or may not be on Jermall and his team. Hopefully he gets a chance at a big name before too long.

      Jermell has 3 of the 4 “major” belts, and is fighting a very tough Castano to unify the division. Not sure what else can be expected of him. Congrats to them on the honor they received from the Houston Mayor.

      • Agreed!!!! I don’t understand the hate toward the Charlos. I guess if you don’t like the self promoting, but personally, I think you have to understand that humble and quiet doesn’t sell as quickly. Both of these guys fight with entertaining styles. Neither can be called boring. And to suggest that a guy who has already won 3 of the 4 belts and is trying to unify in his next outing needs to step up the competition is just plain ignorant.

        As for Jermall at Middleweight, who’s really out there that you’re dying to see him in with:

        GGG? I’d buy that this fight is worth making, but if Jermall wins, then how easy will it be for the haters to say he was too old.

        Andrade? He might be deserving, but every fight of his you watch is time you’ll never get back. Just think, you could have been watching paint dry!

        After those two, who’s really out there? Most if the best options have moved up to 168.

    • How do you become unified champion without fighting top 10 opponents? They cleaned out the divisions.
      You can refuse to see that these twin brothers dedicated themselves, worked hard to get these honors and the rich lifestyle they live.
      They dont give away Middleweight championship belts.
      For two brothers to reach these heights is an awesome story in itself.

      • They don’t give away championship belts but they can be bought. Charlos both seem to be very good.

      • Mell is doing good things. Mall not so much. Mall has had 5 meaningless fights and 1 solid top tier contender in the past 4 years. If he doesn’t fight Jacobs, Andrade, GGG at 160 then it’s just more wasted time. He’s holding out for a fight with Canelo and is expecting a huge payday. I highly doubt either happen especially if his resume remains the same.

  • We’ll deserved for two champions on the top of their game and not getting the big fight/payday that they should be getting
