Jermall Charlo vs. Wilky Campfort on PBC on Nov. 28

by David P. Greisman

Newly crowned junior middleweight titleholder Jermall Charlo will have his first defense come on Nov. 28, when he faces Wilky Campfort, according to Ronnie Shields, who trains Charlo.

Shields said the fight would be on NBC, though it hasn’t been announced yet whether the card will be a “Premier Boxing Champions” card on regular NBC or on the NBC Sports Network.

Al Haymon also has a non-PBC card on the same day in Quebec City, where Showtime will air a doubleheader featuring James DeGale vs. Lucian Bute and Isaac Chilemba vs. Eleider Alvarez.

Charlo, 25, is 22-0 with 17 KOs. He is coming off a title win in September in which he demolished Cornelius Bundrage in three rounds.

Campfort, 31, is 21-1 with 12 KOs. His only loss came in his second pro fight, a four-round majority decision against Manny Woods. This’ll be a big step up for him; his last appearance was a September stoppage of 16-2 Ronald Montes.

Wish J-Rock got a shot. Hopefully him and Trout fight for shot for a shot at Charlo next

I guess that Degale fight will be PPV in Canada since it is on Showtime?
