Jermall Charlo: Bring on Golovkin - I Want That Fight!

Former 154-pound champion Jermall Charlo sent a statement to the middleweight division in the co-main event, knocking out previously once-beaten contender Hugo Centeno Jr. to capture the interim WBC 160-pound title. 

Charlo is now the mandatory for Gennady "GGG" Golovkin and didn't shy away from calling out the WBC, WBA and IBF Middleweight World Champion.
 
"It's been an amazing journey to get here," said Charlo, the twin brother of WBC 154-pound champion Jermell Charlo. "I'm a two-time world champion. Bring on 'GGG.' I want that fight. I'm 27-0 with 21 knockouts. Everybody sees it. What more can I say? The networks and the teams can figure out how to get the Triple G fight done. I have the best manager in the world."

Charlo (27-0, 21 KOs) proved that his power translates to middleweight as he knocked out his second opponent since relinquishing his title and moving to 160 pounds. The Houston native has now won via knockout in five of his six bouts since initially becoming champion in 2015. A series of shots opened up a huge left hook in the opening minute of the second round, flooring Centeno (26-2, 14 KOs), who failed to beat the 10-count and was counted out at :55.
 
"Everybody has always avoided me and from now on, this is how it's going to be," said Charlo. "You see what you get."
 
Following the fight, Centeno was aware of the mistakes that led to the loss.
 
"I thought I started off pretty well. I wanted to go out on my shield but it wasn't my day," Centeno said. "He caught me and got the knockout. I was trying to work my jab. I thought I got him with a couple good shots but I lingered too long in the pocket and I didn't get out in time."

[QUOTE=Bjl12;18698373]I've never, ever, ever been on cuckg bandwagon. Nonetheless I still dont see Charlo as MW boogeyman. Let him fight an actual top tier guy and we'll see where he's at...Danny, Ca$h, cuckg, BJS, etc.[/QUOTE] Well those are the fights…
