Exclusive: Jermall Charlo: "Sooner Or Later" Canelo Alvarez And Gennady Golovkin Have To Answer To Me

In his short time competing in boxing's middleweight division, Jermall Charlo has become one of several boxers many want to see face off against either Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin.

Just two fights in the past 18 months, Charlo provided exciting knockouts and won the interim WBC middleweight title. With the interim title in hand, some believe that it is only a matter of time before he fights Alvarez, the WBC middleweight champion. There's also the possibility of Charlo potentially facing off against Golovkin, the former middleweight champion who is currently a network free agent and entertaining offers from PBC and DAZN.

Should Golovkin take the PBC route, a matchup against Charlo would be the biggest one at 160 pounds that the company could make. But in a recent media call, Charlo stated that he's not too concerned about fighting Alvarez and Golovkin at the moment and more so focused on his upcoming matchup against Matt Korobov on December 22.

"Man, it's god's time. It could be something that I want or something I'm ready for at the time. But it's all a matter of time if I fight him now or I fight him later, I'm only getting wiser, stronger, faster and smarter. So they're going to have to deal with that as it comes. But hopefully those fight happen for me sooner or later. But right now, my main focus is Monroe. And that's what we got on the 22nd. So I'll let those guys take care of what they're doing on their campaigns with Canelo and them and Golovkin. But sooner or later, they got to answer to Jermall Charlo," Charlo told Fightful.

Charlo's fight against Korobov is set to headline a PBC card that will be broadcast on FOX from the Barclays Center, marking the interim champion's third straight fight at the venue. Charlo's brother Jermell is defending his WBC junior middleweight world title on the card against Tony Harrison in the co-main event.
