Charlo's Tearful Plea Family Rift Threatens Boxing Future
Jermall Charlo’s Emotional Plea to Twin Brother Jermell: Reconciliation and Boxing Future Uncertain”
Jermall Charlo’s victory in his comeback bout against Jose Benavidez Jr. had an unexpected twist—a public plea to his twin brother Jermell, who had been absent from the fight. The unbeaten Jermall (33-0, 22 KOs) secured a unanimous decision win after a two-and-a-half-year hiatus, yet his mind was preoccupied with his twin brother’s unresponsiveness. Jermall expressed concern, mentioning that Jermell wasn’t answering calls and hadn’t attended the match.
Speculation arose about the brothers’ estrangement, especially considering Jermell’s recent defeat against Canelo Alvarez and the subsequent backlash for his performance. Jermell, once the undisputed super welterweight champion, faced criticism for what some deemed a cautious approach in the ring. This loss and the subsequent stripping of his titles could jeopardize Jermell’s future fights and title retention if he prolongs his absence from boxing.
Jermall, visibly worried about Jermell’s well-being, urged his brother to reach out, emphasizing the importance of communication and seeking help when needed. He expressed his love for Jermell and highlighted his return to the ring as a positive step forward. While fans await a potential reunion between the Charlo brothers, discussions about Jermall’s boxing future have included potential matchups with David Benavidez and other top contenders in the division.
Jose Benavidez Sr., following his son’s loss to Jermall, expressed interest in a fight between Jermall Charlo and David Benavidez. He praised Jermall’s victory and voiced a desire for David to seek redemption against Jermall in a future bout, especially if a Canelo Alvarez fight does not materialize. This potential matchup between Jermall Charlo and David Benavidez has sparked intrigue among boxing enthusiasts.
The Charlo brothers’ relationship and Jermall’s victorious comeback set the stage for potential high-profile fights in the super middleweight division. As discussions about future opponents and potential title shots continue, the uncertainty surrounding Jermell’s absence from Jermall’s fight remains a prominent concern in the boxing community.
