Tony Harrison vs Jermell Charlo
- WBC Junior Middleweight Title – 12 Rounds
Tony Harrison shocked Jermell Charlo in the first fight. Even though Charlo entered the ring a massive favorite, Harrison used his height and reach to keep Charlo at a distance. Some feel Jermell got robbed. Unless he changes his style, he might get “robbed” again. It’s tough for a 12-year veteran to change his style. Harrison wins the rematch.
