A talented welterweight known as the ‘Ironman’, Houston’s Jermell Charlo is a 21-year old prodigy now looking to win big in the pro game. Charlo graduated to the elite level on the amateur boxing scene after just two years, winning a Bronze medal at the 2005 junior Olympics at 15 years old.
Charlo ended his amateur career with a 56-8 record and began his pro career on December 8, 2007 with a four round decision win over Corey Sommerville. On April 19, 2008, he stopped Jesus Villareal in three rounds and after scoring an impressive first round TKO over Dwayne Jones in June, Charlo added the names Rodrigo Villareal (TKO4) and Deon Nash (W6) to his victims list before the year was out.
2009 was great for the ‘Ironman’ as well, as he scored a shutout four round decision over Juan Serrano on February 28th, decisioned Carlos Garcia over six rounds on April 4th, TKOed Federico Flores Jr. in the eighth round on June 26th, decisioned Vardan Gasparyan in six, and then finished up the year with a second round knockout of unbeaten (6-0) prospect Abdon Lozano, moving him ever faster up the welterweight ranks.
On March 27th, Charlo kicked off 2010 with a bout against Utah’s Gerardo Prieto.
