That’s right, Jermall Charlo has put $10,000 on Ryan Garcia to win this fight. Garcia is quite the underdog and should he win, Charlo could come back with a big chunk of cash.
Jermall Charlo: Picking Garcia
Jermall Charlo is 32-0 with the WBC Middleweight title in tow. Of those 32 wins, he has 22 by way of knockout. Some of his best wins include Austin Trout and Sergiy Derevyanchenko. He hasn’t fought since 2021 and should have a fight soon.
Garcia and Davis are set to face off this weekend in a long-awaited showdown. After going back and forth for several years and a couple false starts, the event is finally going down.
The matchup is a continuation of the Floyd Mayweather vs. Oscar De La Hoya matchup from 2007. After defeating De La Hoya, Mayweather was chased down as GoldenBoy contender Canelo Alvarez made his way to Mayweather. Mayweather, once again, defeated De La Hoya and his prospect.
This fight pits former-Mayweather prospect Gervonta Davis against De La Hoya’s new GoldenBoy in Ryan Garcia. This is the third, and possibly final, chapter in the Mayweather-De La Hoya rivalry that’s long played itself out. Perhaps it’s past it’s time, but the rivalry is one of the best of all time and has given us two great fights and a potential third one this weekend.
You can see if Jermall Charlo can make his money back this weekend live on DAZN as Ryan Garcia and Gervonta Davis face off in the biggest boxing event of the year.
Your friendly neighborhood fight fan. I watch way too many fights and my wife lets me know it.
