Jermall Charlo's path to title fight at NRG Arena

Jermall, who graduated in the top 20 percent of his class at Alief Hastings and spent a year at the University of Houston, got his career off to a late start, not turning pro until a year after his brother. When Jermell was 17-0 and signed to Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions, Jermall was 9-0 with no backing from a major promotional company. That’s when he took a page out of his Savannah Boxing Club playbook and decided he needed to get in someone’s ear.
