Jermall Charlo On Juan Macias Montiel Title Defense And His Immediate Future: “I Want To Stop This Guy, We Need To Get Golovkin, Canelo And Andrade In The Ring”

By: Hans Themistode Jermall Charlo is currently watching the days slowly go by. This coming weekend, the WBC middleweight champion will put his belt and undefeated record on the line when he takes on the hard-hitting Juan Macias Montiel. The two are scheduled to face off in Charlo’s hometown of Houston Texas, at the Toyota Center. Despite Charlo being the heavy favorite, Montiel (22-4-2, 22 KOs) has talked a big game. With every single one of his wins coming via stoppage, the Mexican native plans on making Charlo another knockout victim. Regardless of his brazen trash talk, Charlo can’t help but smile and nod when he discusses the verbal threats by his upcoming opponent. From the moment the opening bell rings, Charlo (31-0, 22 KOs) doesn't want to box and move. With all the nonstop knockout talk, Charlo wants Montiel to stand and bang in the middle of the ring with him. “Montiel can’t make any mistakes,” said Charlo during an interview on The Jake Asman Show on SportsMap Radio. “I have just as many knockouts as him and I’ve knocked out way stiffer competition than he has. He's a confident kid and I understand why, he’s fighting for my belt. Followers get your popcorn before the fight, he coming to bang and I want to see how long he stays in the blender.” Charlo, 31, says that he is fully focused on the task at hand. Still, with that said, a matchup against Montiel didn’t exactly excite the fight fans when it was first announced. With the middleweight division flooded with a plethora of great fighters, many were expecting a much more established name for Charlo’s first fight of the 2021 calendar. Before it’s all said and done, the Houstonian wants to leave an indelible mark in middleweight history. That, in turn, would mean a matchup against some, if not all, of the current belt holders in his division, something Charlo is desperately hoping happens next. “I want to stop this guy,” continued Charlo. “I want to show y’all that Jermall Charlo is for real and we need to get Golovkin, Canelo and Andrade in the ring.” Amongst those previously mentioned names, Golovkin is possibly the one fighter Charlo has chased longer than the others. While fans are crossing their fingers and hoping they face off in the near future, Charlo revealed that his team attempted to make their showdown a reality. “We reached out to him. Hopefully, the fight happens one day.” The post Jermall Charlo On Juan Macias Montiel Title Defense And His Immediate Future: “I Want To Stop This Guy, We Need To Get Golovkin, Canelo And Andrade In The Ring” appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.

Bob Arum Believes Gervonta Davis Has No Chance Against Josh Taylor: “I Don’t Think That Taylor Would Have Any Trouble With Him”

By: Hans Themistode The sport of boxing can be a bit confusing at times. Just a few weeks ago, Josh Taylor claimed every world title at 140 pounds by defeating former unified champion Jose Ramirez. The two battled it out at the Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas, Nevada. Taylor would go on to drop Ramirez twice during their showdown before ultimately walking away with the win. Still, despite claiming all four world titles, Gervonta Davis will have the chance to call himself a world champion at 140 pounds in roughly two more weeks. The hard-hitting Baltimore native is scheduled to take on WBA “Regular” titlist Mario Barrios at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. Considering that the two now compete in the same weight class, if Davis were to pull off the win, speculation has mounted that a matchup between Taylor and Davis could happen next. While Bob Arum, promoter of Taylor, wouldn't be opposed to it, he doesn't see that fight as very competitive. “I think he’s too small at 140,” said Arum to a group of reporters during a recent interview. “I don’t think that Taylor would have any trouble with him.” The size difference that Arum alludes to is glaring. If Davis were to ever step inside the ring against Taylor, he’ll face someone who holds a five-inch height and two-inch reach advantage. Regardless of those physical disadvantages, Davis appears to be prepping for life against bigger men. In his upcoming showdown against Barrios, not only will Davis face an opponent who is five inches taller than him but he’ll also have a four-inch reach disadvantage as well. Although Arum doesn't see a matchup between Taylor and Davis as competitive, the former multiple division champion was extremely confident in his abilities to take care of business against Taylor not long ago. “I will stop you,” said Davis during an exchange with Taylor in 2019. “I promise you that.” Not to be outdone, Taylor responded shortly after. “Put the drink down and sleep it off wee man,” said Taylor. The seeds of a matchup between the pair were seemingly planted several years ago. But first things first, Davis must take care of business against Barrios on June 26th.
