Jermell Charlo Warns: Hurd Don't Know What He Got Coming!

WBC junior middleweight world champion Jermell Charlo (30-0, 15 KOs) would like to get his hands on WBA, IBF champion Jarrett Hurd (22-0, 15 KOs) as soon as possible.

Charlo was ringside this past Saturday night at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, and watched Hurd win a close twelve round split decision over longtime division ruler Erislandy Lara to unify the WBA, IBF, IBO titles.

As reported earlier, Charlo is scheduled to return on June 9th, against Austin Trout at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.


Showtime's pre-fight plan was to match the Lara-Hurd winner against Charlo by the end of the year.

Charlo was happy with the way last Saturday's fight played out, because he's close friends with Lara and the two of them trained side by side for several years.

"Lara and me are friends, we trained together but we would have done it because of the business," Charlo told ESPN. "Me fighting Lara would have created turmoil, so I'm glad it went in this direction. I'll fight whatever fight I have to and he'll fight whatever fight he has to. But now he's out of the way and me and Hurd, it's a mega fight in our division. I'm like, 'Let's go!'"

Charlo believes Hurd takes away too many punches. He has no issue trading punches with Hurd when the time comes.

"Hurd puts on entertaining fights, I put on entertaining fights. Let's bang it out, let's rumble. I'm not a little 154-pounder (like Lara is). I'm six-feet tall, I'm strong, I'm thick. He's strong, he's thick. Let's give the fans a great fight. That's my thing. I'm proud of Hurd. He did what he had to do," Charlo said. "Hurd was very respectful to me. He's cool. They respect the 'Lion' but Hurd don't know what he got coming," Charlo said.

"I'd rather fight Hurd right away but I'm fighting June 9. I'd rather fight in the main event. That would be the best thing. But I will be ready for Trout and then I will be ready for Hurd. It's like it's been a tournament and me and Hurd is the final for all those belts. I am going to be so ready. My life is solid, I'm training hard, always working. I'm super pumped up for the Hurd fight."

If he actually wanted to fight Hurdhe will fight him next. Acts likes his forced to fight Trout. He has no promoter how is he being forced. If Charlo vs Hurd is actually made they need to have drug testing.…
