Jermall and Jermell Charlo are on the verge of their defining night of action as the twin brothers prepare to headline two Pay-Per-Views on the same night.
The pair of world champions, holding titles at 154 and 160 respectively, will compete in split bouts on top billing this September.
Putting his WBC strap on the line, Jermall faces the solid Ukrainian Sergiy Derevyanchenko, an opponent who has shared the ring with the best but come up short each time.
Derevyanchenko is one of the most dangerous opponents Charlo has faced, opening the odds at roughly -130/+100 in Charlo’s favor.
Removing the juice, the odds give the Ukrainian a 46.9% chance to win. Only Julian Williams (47.3%) has a better chance to hand the slightly-older Charlo his first career loss.
That said, the betting action has moved Charlo’s odds closer to -180.
In the other Charlo brother bout, sportsbooks initially gave Jeison Rosario +240 odds to beat Jermell. By doing the math on an odds converter works out to a 29.4% chance.
Bettors still thought that was too much, though, and almost every book now has Rosario longer than +300.”
Showtime decided to shine the spotlight on the siblings in a bid to blast fans out of the current pandemic. No boxing took place at all for some ten weeks.
Now, on September 26, the sport can finally look forward to the biggest night since Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder in February.
