Charlo Plans To Remain at 154, Wants The Big Fights
Charlo used his height and jab to control the fight and keep the tenacious Campfort from getting inside and causing any damage to the defending champion. In the second round, Charlo landed a two-punch combo that ended with a right cross to send Campfort to the canvas.
The trouble continued for Campfort in round three as Charlo connected on a strong left hook that put Campfort down a second time. When the action picked up in round four Charlo upped the aggression and put Campfort on the mat for the final time with a flurry that left Campfort cut and unable to see out of his right eye.
Referee Mark Calo-oy stopped the fight 1:16 into round four. Charlo outlanded Campfort 62-11 over the four rounds and landed 30% of his power punches.
"My gameplan was to start off using the jab and to see how he'd react. It was a powerful weapon.
"I work so hard in camp, it's a great feeling to see it translated into a victory. I knew I had advantages, so I just wanted to take my time and make sure I got a chance to show my power.
"Camp was very good. I just won the title September 12 and I've already defended it. Get it and defend it. I'm a real world champion.
"I love Dallas! This is like a second home. These fans are great and I look forward to coming back.
"I've got the best jab in the business. I'm going to keep using it, because it's feeding my family.
"I'm going to stay right here at 154. This is my title and I'm going to defend it. I'm ready for anyone."
"I had a problem getting past his jab. Once I got in, he was so much bigger than me and my punches couldn't really effect him. He controlled the fight with his jab.
"I tried to make the fight happen, but it was hard to get inside of him. He's a big guy and a really good fighter. But I felt like I was in there with a light heavyweight.
"On the last knockdown my eye got blurry and I couldn't really see. That's why the ref stopped it."
Charlo should step up in competition and start fighting solid contenders at least. You can´t fight bums like Camfort and say "i want big names". He is not just a prospect anymore, he is IBF champ.Comment by bluebeam on 11-30-2015
There are no big fights at 154. Cotto is roc nation Canelo is golden boy Charlo is stuck with andrade or troutComment by Eastcoast on 11-30-2015
Well lets see, J-Rock has his IBF eliminator in January, that means Charlo won't have to make that mando for what 9 months? That buys Jermall enough time for another 2-3 easy title defenses. No point moving up to 160…Comment by MC Hammer on 11-30-2015
