Unbeaten super welterweight world champion Jermell Charlo is training hard for his scheduled fight with former world champion Austin Trout. They recently went face-to-face in Los Angeles to discuss their showdown Saturday, June 9 live on SHOWTIME from STAPLES Center in Los Angeles in an event presented by Premier Boxing Champions.
The SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING telecast is headlined by a rematch between featherweight world champions and Southern California rivals Leo Santa Cruz and Abner Mares.
Tickets for the live event, which is promoted by Ringstar Sports and TGB Promotions, begin at $50, plus applicable fees, and are on sale now.
RICHARD SCHAEFER, Chairman & CEO of Ringstar Sports - "There are a lot of great fighters with talent and skill, but you can't tell me five fighters who can combine those skills with the charisma and personality that the Charlo twins have. The last time I saw crowds of reporters engaged with fighters like this was with Floyd Mayweather. But these guys aren't following in anyone's footsteps, they're doing it their way and they're doing an absolutely amazing job.
"The Charlo twins are pound-for-pound one and two as having the overall package of skill and charisma. You can't teach that. You either have it or you don't.
"The Charlos go into every fight with a target on their back. They know their opponent will be in their best shape possible. That is exactly the personality of Austin Trout and what makes him such a dangerous opponent who has years of experience in big fights to fall back on. Jermell knows that and he will be ready. I know these guys can't wait to face each other on June 9."
