  • Same governing body that gave Jermall Charlo 3 years to sit on his belt!! At least they got this one right??!!

      • It only means he can come back whenever to challenge and unify the recess belt with the actual belt. Money wise it makes sense. Let’s say Ryan, Subriel, Teofimi etc decide to move and become champs it’s a mega money fight but not to competitive…

  • They should just let him be! Canelo has held his strap hostage for over 2 years now…
