Charlo: If Hurd Stays in Front of Me and Takes Shots - He's Done!

Staples Center, Los Angeles - In the co-main event of the doubleheader, Jermell Charlo (31-0, 15 KOs) recorded a majority decision victory by outpointing former world champion Austin Trout (31-5, 17 KOs) to defend his WBC Super Welterweight World Championship. Charlo's four-fight knockout streak ended in his third world title defense. Two judges scored it 118-108 and 115-111 in favor of Charlo, and third scored it 113-113.
 
"Sometimes you knock them out, sometimes you just beat them." said Charlo, who has now defended his 154-pound title three times. "I went to fish, I tried to get some trout but I couldn't catch him on the hook. I know they're used to seeing me knock boys out but at least they saw me take care of business."
 
Charlo recorded two knockdowns in the bout. Trout hit the canvas for the first time in the final minute of the third round as Charlo applied heavy pressure, first connecting on a big right followed by a counter left hook that knocked Trout off balance. Just eight seconds into the ninth, Trout went to one knee on a Charlo left hook to the side of Trout's head. It was the sixth time Trout had been down in his career. Charlo continued to exert punishment on the game but tiring Trout.

"Take those knockdowns away I won the fight," said the southpaw Trout, 32, who also went the distance in a unanimous-decision loss against Jermell's twin brother and interim middleweight titleholder Jermall in 2016. "I can't make any excuses, the better man won with those knockdowns.
 
"Both Jermell and Jermall are really good. They are the future. But I'm not done yet. I'm not defined by my results. I'm defined by the risks I take. I've taken the risks and I've stood my ground every time against giants and killers. And I'm still here."
 
More accurate than Trout connecting on his punches the entire fight, Charlo went on a relentless attack in the 10th, connecting on multiples power punches that seemed to faze Trout. Charlo continued his attack in the 11th and 12th, choosing to stay upstairs as opposed to going to the body.
 
"Trout will tell you who will win that fight," Charlo said of a potential unification with IBF and WBA 154-pound titleholder Jarret Hurd. "That's why he survived 12. If Hurd sat in front of me and took those shots he's done."

Charlo will need to move a lot I think, Hurd is a monster for the weight and won't be stopped in his tracks easily. If he gets on his bike and boxes I think he wins but he's in bad…

Point has to be made and taken into consideration that the last three fighters Hurd has faced been boxers and Harrison is a boxer puncher who has some pop as well as Lara too. Furthermore watch the fights with Hurd…
