Jermall Charlo (31-0), a.k.a. “The Future of Boxing”, is the reigning WBC middleweight champion, and consistently ranks in the top three of active middleweight boxers. Charlo has championship boxing in his genes, as his identical twin brother Jermell is currently a unified super welterweight champion. Jermall Charlo is undefeated and coming off a quality victory over Sergiy Derevyanchenko last September.
In his division, a deal has already been struck by two other champions, Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and Ryōta Murata, to have a unification fight, so Charlo is running low on quality opponents he’d want to fight. There are many who would love to see him take on WBO champion Demetrius Andrade, but Charlo has shown little interest in that fight. He’s climbed the mountain in his weight class, but with the other champions and top contenders in other promotions, his next best move might be to move up to super middleweight and force a mandatory showdown with Canelo Alvarez.
Juan Macias Montiel (22-4-2) is the challenger in this fight and a contender at middleweight, but it’s not clear how much of a chance he may have. This Mexican native is only 27 years old, and he’s had quite the interesting career so far. He is coming off of a strong upset victory as the “B-side” fighter against James Kirkland, and he has three wins and a draw in his last four fights.
Montiel’s last loss was in 2017, when he was stopped by Jaime Munguia in the second round. No boxing experts are giving Montiel a serious chance here, and it is easy to understand why. It is likely too much too soon to expect him to be ready for talent and maturity of Charlo’s level, but maybe Montiel has another upset knockout in him after all.
