HOUSTON, TEXAS, February 16, 2017 — Undefeated champion Jermall Charlo relinquished the IBF junior middleweight title this afternoon in order to pursue bigger challenges and another world championship in the middleweight division.

Charlo, 26, who lives and trains in Houston, has a sterling record of 25-0 with 19 KOs. He won the title with a TKO victory over Cornelius Bundrage on Sept. 12, 2015, and successfully defended it three times, defeating Wilky Campfort, former 154-pound champion Austin Trout and top contender Julian Williams. Charlo leaves the division after an impressive KO victory over Williams at the Galen Center on the USC campus in Los Angeles on Dec. 10, 2016. (continue reading…)

Fighter Of The Year: Jermall Charlo

HOUSTON, TX — No question about it. The young hitter from The Bayou City wrecked Cornelius Bundrage in September to capture the IBF Super Welterweight Title and join the hearlded ranks of World Champions hailing from Houston.

He made his first defense by clobbering Wilky Camfort in four rounds in Dallas and seems to have the right tools for a long and successful career. I would like to see him more active however, as he boxed less than a combined 17 rounds throughout all of 2015. (continue reading…)

CARSON, CA, April, 26, 2014 — Keith Thurman lived up to his nickname of “One Time” with a blistering 3 round performance that left Julio Diaz unable to continue due to a Rib injury after 3 rounds of rapid give and take boxing. The crowd at the Stubhub center in Carson California were disappointed in the brevity of the main event but there was solace in the fact that the co-main event was arguably the Fight of the year to date and will be difficult to top for the rest.

The first round begins with Keith Thurman (22 – 0, 20 Kos) coming out and initiating a glove touch with Julio Diaz (40 -9, 29 Kos) which seems slightly peculiar as Thurman had made bold comments about knocking Julio’s head off in the lead up to the fight.  Thurman jabs three times then misses with a hook off the jab throwing it just a little too wide. Julio Diaz misses a right hand lead and gets caught with a hard hook from Thurman that rocks him back against the ropes, another hook lands from Thurman making Diaz legs do a little dance uncontrollably coming off the floor.  Near rounds end Thurman feints Diaz out of position then backpedals with Diaz in pursuit landing a series of hooks to Diaz body in the process.
