Jermell Charlo Uninterested In Tony Harrison Trilogy
Two time reigning Junior middleweight titlist Jermell Charlo believes that a trilogy against Tony Harrison isn’t needed because he proved his superiority last time out with the former champ.
Charlo has made clear in the past, he wants to clean out the 154 pound division and that also involved facing Harrison one more time to prove the first fight was a fluke. However, Charlo isn’t interested in a trilogy.
“I had to take Tony out. I just wanted y’all to know that was a whole fraud move,” Charlo (33-1, 17KOs) noted while hosting a live chat on the official Facebook fan page of Premier Boxing Champions (PBC). “I don’t know what the boxing world was on when they were trying to do me like that.
“It’s always something to try to make a legacy important and I guess that’s what I went through.”

Harrison claimed a controversial decision over Charlo back in December of 2018 and they were booked to go at it again in June of 2019 but Harrison pulled out due to an injury and when the rematch eventually happened, Charlo, whose title and unbeaten record got ripped scored three knockdowns en route to a 11th round stoppage victory in December 2019.
The fight which definitely falls among one of the memorable fights of 2019, was also one of the second most watched telecast of the year. However, Charlo believes, his point has been proved and he has to move on to fulfilling his dreams of becoming an undisputed champion in the 154 pound division.
“Would I ever fight him (again)? F–k no,” Charlo bluntly states. “Why…so we can go back and prove another point, a point we already proved? I already proved that in the first fight, but I guess everyone was just listening to the hype man, to Tony Harrison. He hyped real good, and then he got his ass knocked out.
“What y’all want me to do, go wiggle and dance with him in the ring? It’s entertainment, and that’s why you should tune in and watch my next fight.”
