Boxing: Jermall Charlo and Chris Eubank Jr. in Title Fights

In addition to the mega-event in Saudi Arabia, the fists will fly in the Barclays Center in Brooklyn (New York, USA)!  The middleweight stars Jermall Charlo and Chris Eubank Jr. each rise in title fights in the ring.  If both win, Charlo and Eubank Jr. may meet in the upcoming year.

29-year-old Jermall Charlo (29-0-0, 21 Ko's) wants to make a statement tonight when he puts his world middleweight title against Australian Dennis Hogan on the line.  After Charlo became the proud daddy of a daughter last week, the "regular" WBC champion wants to achieve the next success in the sporting field as well!

Although some experts give his Irish challenger quite a chance, the Houston (Texas) based defending champion is full of self-confidence.  "I fight for my family all the harder and will make for a spectacular show Saturday night!" Said Jermall Charlo, whose twin brother Jermell also belongs to the world elite, to different media.

"Many boxers say that they are not necessarily out to beat their opponents knockout.  But I do exactly that!  If I hit Hogan properly, he'll go to sleep! "Charlo continued.  However, 34-year-old Dennis Hogan (28-2-1, 7 Ko's), who lives in Ireland and lives in Australia, should not be underestimated.

After all, Hogan delivered in the World Cup match against Jaime Munguia, in April this year, a courageous fight and lost - in the opinion of some experts - wrongly.  Nevertheless, Jermall Charlo is considered a favorite against his very strong challenger.  Should Charlo win, it could be a duel with Chris Eubank Jr. in 2020, who will be on the same fight card!

Briton Chris Eubank Jr. (28-2-0, 21 Ko's) will make his US debut at the Barclays Center!  The 30-year-old son of boxing legend Chris Eubank Senior, wants to come after years of staying in the super middleweight now again in the next lower division to the title success.  In the battle for the WBA middleweight middleweight race, Eubank Jr. will face six-year-old Russian Matt Korobov (28-2-1, 14 Ko's).

"I respect Korobov, but I'm hungry to beat him!  If I succeed, I want to fight Jermall Charlo and then conquer the middleweight! "Said Chris Eubank Jr., who has never been a man of soft tones.

In fact, it could come in case of victory soon to meet with Jermall Charlo.  As one wants to know from Insiderkreisen, already a pre-contract exist, which envisages a fight between Charlo and Eubank Jr. for 2020.  Exciting would be that (possible) encounter for the boxing fans anyway!
