There’s no need to thicken it to generate heat for Tony Harrison vs. Jermell Charlo. The hatred between the two is pretty thick and it’s been about a year.
Harrison will defend the WBC junior middleweight title against Charlo in a nationally televised bout Saturday night at the Toyota Arena in Ontario, California.
The fight marks a rematch of almost an exact year since the night of December 22, 2018 that had Harrison rating a controversial unanimous decision over Charlo to take the WBC leash. The rematch was due in June but had to be postponed after Harrison sustained an ankle injury. Charlo, however, claims that Harrison was knocked out during a boxing conference and deliberately falsified the ankle injury only to withdraw from their fight.

This claim enrages Harrison, who will try to prove he is the best fighter.
“It bothers me that people can’t see real from fake,” Harrison told DAZN News. “Everything he says is fake and fake like s- but they are shadowed because he was above me, he has the jewelry to prove it and hangs around all the big stars. It’s easier for people to favor him because of who he knows and what’s above the sheer truth of what’s going on. “
Harrison (28-2, 21 KOs) says he never “feels better about a fight mentally”. Although looking to defend the title, Charlo (32-1, 16 KOs) will aim to get back the material he feels was a robbery.
Will Harrison prove his win last December was far from jogging, or will Charlotte regain his title and head by 2020 as the best junior middleweight in boxing?
