JERMALL CHARLO STRIPPED OF WBC MIDDLEWEIGHT TITLE AFTER DUI INCIDENT

In a shocking turn of events, the promising career of American boxing sensation Jermall Charlo has taken a significant hit following his recent altercation with the law. The 33-year-old, known for his unbeaten record of 33-0 (22), has found himself stripped of his WBC middleweight title after being arrested for his involvement in a DUI incident in Houston, Texas.

According to reports, Charlo was involved in a collision with his Lamborghini and another vehicle, prompting his arrest after he attempted to flee the scene. Police administered a sobriety test, which Charlo purportedly failed, leading to charges of DWI, fleeing the police, and leaving the scene of a crash. This incident marks a significant setback for Charlo, who was eyeing a return to the ring after a prolonged absence due to mental health issues.

However, his latest run-in with the law has raised concerns about his future in the sport. The WBC, previously understanding of Charlo’s struggles, has taken the decisive step of stripping him of his middleweight title and elevating Carlos Adames to the coveted position of WBC World Champion.
