Jermall has been a part of the boxing world since his childhood and had an amazing career in amateur boxing. Apart from that, he has also made a lot of money from all the fights that he has been a part of. Let’s take a look at how much money he has made over the years.
Early life and career
Born on May 19, 1990, Jermall Charlo began boxing when he followed his father, himself a former boxer, at the gym. He started his amateur career at the collegiate level and had a pretty impressive record. The athlete was destined to become a star and his moment of glory came when he was seen as a hopeful for a spot on the 2008 US Olympic team. However, he was forced to back out due to a toe injury.
But he did not back down and competed after that as well. Jermall finished his career in amateur boxing with a record of 65 wins and six losses.
Now, it was time to meet the big guns and enter the world of professional boxing. He made his professional debut against Cimmaron Davis on August 12, 2008, and won the fight via technical knockout in Round 2. Next year, he would go on to have his second professional bout against Deon Nash and secured a comfortable victory. Over the next five years, Charlo remained undefeated picking up wins over Orlando Lora, Antwone Smith and Norberto Gonzalez. By the close of 2014, Charlo had a record of 20 wins and no losses.
After being a force to be reckoned with in the light middleweight category, Jermall decided to move to the middleweight group. In June 2017, he fought the WBC number one ranked boxer Jorge Sebastian Heiland in a final eliminator. Charlo became the mandatory challenger for the WBC middleweight title, with a stoppage win over an injured Heiland in round 4. Over the years, he has fought some of the best boxers in WBC history and claimed victory over them. That’s why he is considered to be one of the best professional boxers of the current generation.
Achievements and awards
In May 2015, Charlo fought against Cornelius Bundrage for the IBF Light Middleweight title and won the title with a third-round knockout win. Charlo never allowed Bundrage to get into the fight, constantly applying pressure. A final blow to the head in round 3 sealed the victory for Charlo and he captured the IBF light middleweight title.
The fighter went on to hold the championship belt for two more years before he decided to move up to middleweight. He did not take much time in showing his dominance in the category and claimed the WBC interim middleweight title after knocking Hugo Centeno in round 2. Since then, he has faced a lot of opponents inside the ring, but no one has managed to claim a victory against him.
Apart from that, his fight against Sergiy Derevyanchenko won the Fight of the Year accolade at the 2020 Houston Boxing Awards.
The athlete took part in a charity match in 2014 and raised around $9,000 for a child named Corbin Glasscock who was diagnosed with bone cancer at the age of 6.
