Alcine Hints at Retirement After Charlo Knockout Loss

HOUSTON - The Halloween night broadcast of Premier Boxing Champions on NBCSN took Houston's NRG Arena by storm as undefeated rising star Jermell "Iron Man" Charlo (27-0, 12 KOs) dominated former world champion Joachim Alcine (35-8-2, 21 KOs) in the main event by sixth round knockout.
 
Televised coverage kicked off with a thrilling showdown as Tony Harrison (22-1, 18 KOs) got the unanimous decision over Cecil McCalla (20-3, 7 KOs).
 
The final televised fight of the evening saw undefeated middleweight prospect Caleb "Sweet Hands" Plant (12-0, 8 KOs) capture a unanimous decision over Tyrone Bruson (22-6-1, 21 KOs).
 
"My right hand was working well for me, but I stopped throwing it and started focusing too much on my jab," Acline said.
 
"I didn't fight for a year and a half, and then I jumped right into the ring with a hungry, young lion. I wanted the fight, but sometimes pride takes its' toll.
 
"Fighting on a PBC card gave me a big opportunity to show the world what I can do. But (Charlo) was stronger than I thought he'd be.
 
"I don't know what's next. I'll talk with my wife first. I still have a strong desire to get in the ring, but I'm 39 now. My health is very important to me. I want to be there for my family and my daughter. So we'll have to wait and see."
