Jermall Charlo is optimistic a clash with Gennadiy Golovkin can be made for 2021. The fight would be a massive middleweight unification.
Speaking during an explosive interview with the WBC Middleweight Champion on the Last Stand Podcast with Brian Custer, the champ unleashed.
He also told Custer exactly what will happen if he steps in the ring with David Benavidez and Demetrius Andrade.
Charlo addressed a much-anticipated Canelo Alvarez fight and when he’s planning on moving up to 168.
But before all of that happens, Charlo gave Custer the inside scoop on his next opponent.
Charlo says he’s working on getting a Gennady Golovkin fight
“I’m trying to lock in this Triple G fight. I’m letting you know first. That’s kind of what I’ve been working on. At least that will give me a little more stepping power to say I can fight Canelo.”
Charlo on fighting David Benavidez
“Let’s make that fight happen. I’m going to knock his little punk ass out! I promise that I put that on everything I love. I give him about four rounds, five rounds, before I knock him out in five rounds, six rounds no more. He gets hit too much. I’m powerful. I’ll explode on him. I do my thing…trust me. I’ve been doing this all my life. Please put me in there. I’m a lion. Let’s get it.”
Charlo on Canelo Alvarez
“We were at 154 together, 160 together, and if I campaign at 168, we’re at 168 together. I haven’t gotten a call from them, I don’t know what the hype is all about, but I have not gotten a call from their camp. Their camp has not called me. They have not tried to initiate a fight. They have not even gone to the negotiation levels, so don’t listen to the hype.”
Charlo on fighting Demetrius Andrade
“This clown, nobody knows him…I would blow his f*#king mind with these straight right hands, and I promise you he can’t even last five or six rounds. That pressure is different out here!”
Charlo on when he’s moving up to 168
“I want to unify as my brother did. At 160, at least let me unify, let me capture the division, there’s somebody when can unify, we can fight. It doesn’t matter who got the belt. Maybe like two to three more fights.”
