Matt Korobov: People Know That I Beat Jermall Charlo!

WBC Interim Middleweight Champion Jermall Charlo (28-0, 21 KOs) won a hard-fought unanimous decision over Matt Korobov (28-2, 13 KOs) to defend his title in the main event of Premier Boxing Champions on FOX and FOX Deportes Saturday night from Barclays Center, the home of BROOKLYN BOXING™.

The southpaw Korobov had success early countering Charlo with straight left hands that landed cleanly, even if they didn't deter Charlo from coming forward. Korobov was successful countering to the body as well and ended the fight with a 119 to 114 advantage in power punches landed according to CompuBox.
 
Charlo stayed consistent with his jab however through the early rounds and began to break through later as Korobov's right eye appeared to close during the middle rounds. Charlo out-jabbed Korobov by a 56 to 9 advantage in jabs landed, and also threw nearly 200 more punches throughout the fight per CompuBox.

In round 12 Charlo closed the show and nearly stopped Korobov, who used his experience to hold and move enough to survive the round. Charlo landed a clean left hook to the head early in the round that put Korobov on shaky legs, and he followed up with several strong punches that forced Korobov to try to survive.
 
After 12-rounds of action, Charlo won the unanimous decision by scores of 119-108 and 116-112, even after watching his twin brother lose a tough decision minutes prior to his fight starting.
 
Korobov thought he had done enough to win the fight after he stepped in as a replacement opponent one week prior to fight night.
 
"I thought that I won the fight," said Korobov. "It was definitely a fight that could have gone either way, but I believe the people know that I won. I'm the most avoided fighter in boxing and I showed why tonight. I hope this performance will get me another title fight."

PBC corruption. Haymon has the judges paid off. First Wilder needed help from the judges. Then Charlo needed to get rescued. PBC shame on you!
