Bundrage's career has skyrocketed in recent years since a world title winning performance in 2010 over Cory Spinks. The Detroit-native went on defend the title against Sechew Powell and Spinks. He would lose the title in 2013 but quickly earned another shot against Carlos Molina, who he would defeat by unanimous decision to become a two-time world champion. He defends against the very hungry Charlo on September 12.
 
Highly regarded and undefeated,the 24-year-old Charlois primed for his first world title opportunity.

Fighting out of Houston, Charlo will no doubt look to be impressive in his first PBC opportunity.
