Jermall Charlo Hungry For KO Win, Vows To Down Dennis Hogan

As previously reported, WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo will defend his title against highly-ranked contender Dennis Hogan on Saturday, December 7 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The fight will be televised by Showtime.

Charlo (29-0, 21 KOs), 29-years-old, has won three in a row since jumping up to the middleweight limit. He held the IBF's title at 154-pounds.

In a homecoming defense in June, he successfully retained the title against Brandon Adams with a unanimous decision in his first bout since being elevated to full champion. He became the full champion after the WBC elevated Canelo Alvarez to the status of "Franchise" champion.

In his last fight at Barclays Center he shared the card with his twin brother, Jermell, and came away with a hard-fought unanimous decision over tough veteran Matt Korobov last December.

Charlo is not pleased with having back to back decision wins. He wants to score a knockout over Hogan (28-2-1, 7 KOs).

Hogan, in his last fight, lost a very controversial decision to WBO junior middleweight champion Jaime Munguia. He was denied an immediate rematch and is now motivated to secure a world title in a new weight class. Hogan has never been stopped in his career and has a solid chin.
"Nobody knows Dennis Hogan like I know Dennis Hogan," said Charlo. "He likes to come straight forward with that 'Mexican' style. I'm going to exploit that. He's a tough fighter and he deserves a shot at the world championship because he competed well at the championship level already.
"I'm going on two consecutive 12-rounders and I don't feel good about that. I'm ready to get back to my thing, which is knocking them out and getting them out of there. This is a big fight for me because it's my 30th fight and I'm about to turn 30."
