JERMALL CHARLO ------- FORMER IBF, CURRENT WBC CHAMPION (160)
On September 26, 2020, Charlo took on his number-one contender, Sergiy Derevyanchenko. It was a fight Charlo wanted, a fight many believed would be the toughest of his career.
They were right.
Charlo and Derevyanchenko warred for 12 rounds in a battle for the ages. The challenger gave it all he had, overwhelming Charlo at times and landing a number of good shots.
In the end, the champion was simply too good. Charlo used his size, jab and power punches that rocked Derevyanchenko on several occasions to win a unanimous decision. Final cards read 118-110, 117-111 and 116-112.
“He was tough, but I knew he was going to be tough,” Charlo admitted. “I knew he’d come to fight, I just didn’t know how and when he’d try to turn it up. I felt like I never really let him turn it up and that was the game plan. I studied well and I didn’t let the pandemic affect my training. I just want to keep fighting and not let any negative interrupt the positive.
“I stayed poised, I stayed composed and I executed the game plan. I was staying behind the jab, I got away from it a little, but Ronnie got me back. I wanted to knock him out but dominating like I did was a big statement.”
