"These four guys up here have been on SHOWTIME a combined 41 times. That's a lot and it doesn't happen by accident. The reason it happens is because these fighters embody everything we want SHOWTIME Boxing to be about. They have some of the strongest resumes in the sport. None of these guys have ever shied away from taking a tough fight. They don't come with excuses, they want the best and biggest fights. We' ae proud to have all four of them on SHOWTIME.

"Right now we have a matchup between two of the biggest stars and faces of Southern California boxing. The featherweight division has seen top five fighters on SHOWTIME already this year-This is a rematch between two more of the top 5. In the first fight, they threw a combined 2,000 punches, which I would bet will be matched again on Saturday.

"Austin Trout has been in there with the biggest and best stars in the sport of boxing. But Jermell has quite a bit of momentum. He has four consecutive stoppages, which is very impressive at the championship level. As everyone has said this is another main event quality matchup and I look forward to seeing it on Saturday night."

Trout is classy. The Charlos try to hard, they are a total cliche.

In fairness things get tense when they ask Charlo if he wants fries with that at the counter at Wendys.
