JERMELL CHARLO
 
"There are some things I have in my arsenal that the world hasn't seen yet. I'm going to show everyone a little bit more than last time.
 
"I'm ready to go 12 rounds. I'm excited about this fight. I've picked up a lot of things in training and I'm ready to shine.
 
"I want to make a statement with a knockout, but if it doesn't happen, I'm ready to do what I have to do. I can't put too much pressure on myself, I just have to take care of business.
 
"From growing up in the boxing world, I've had to slowly realize how big of a stage I have. I try to help out young fighters on how to get to this point.
 
"Charles Hatley is a good fighter. He comes with pressure and he likes fighting. He's got a good style and he can bob and weave and be slick.
 
"I'm excited about fighting in Brooklyn for the first time. Everyone knows the fans in New York are great because they're real and they know their stuff. I'm hoping to give them something to remember.
 
"I've studied this sport a lot. My size is going to have a big effect on him. My size is going to wear on him as we get to the later rounds. I've experienced a lot of things in the world of boxing."

Damn I wonder if Jermell's heading up to 160 like his bro. I think he takes care of Hatley quite easily drained or not.

Is this guy Charlo happy fighting once a year? He must be, I don't hear him complaining about it. He passes the eye test for me, but we don't see a lot of him, sadly.
