The WBC World Middleweight Champion overcomes a stiff test with the finest performance of his career in the first of two headliners on SHOWTIME PPV.
And The Winner Is?
It’s time to place Jermall Charlo among the very best in the sport, pound for pound. In a thrilling battle between elite 160-pounders, Charlo outboxed and out brawled a game Sergiy Derevyanchenko to retain his WBC World Middleweight title via a 12-round unanimous decision. The bout headlined the first three-fight card in a six-fight, first-of-its-kind boxing doubleheader on SHOWTIME pay-per-view. It wasn’t easy – but no one has ever had an easy time versus Derevyanchenko. The Ukraine Olympian had come up short in two prior shots at a world title, both decision losses many believed should have gone in his favor.
