Jermell and Jermall Charlo from Lafayette, Louisiana have over 60 combined professional boxing matches and just one loss between them.
The identical twins born just one minute apart would be considered the best brotherly duo in the sweet science today if it weren’t for those Paul kids.
Logan and Jack P…
Okay. Logan and Jake Paul only started training boxing in their 20s but in just a few years have cemented themselves among the boxing elite.
Word is, even Floyd Money Mayweather wants a piece of the Paul’s.
I actually picked Logan to win his last fight with fellow Youtuber, KSI.
That didn’t go over well as Paul seemed to be more technically sound and was definitely bigger but I give all the credit in the world to KSI.
He stayed in the face of the much larger and harder hitting fighter and the strategy worked perfectly.
If you think a fight between a couple of noobs is entertaining then you will love the pugilistic pairings we have on tap for Saturday.
Jermell and Jermall Charlo, top ranked boxing twins are fighting each other this weekend!
Nah, that would be interesting, though.
They are both fighting on the same card, kinda.
They will be in the same place, Uncasville, CT, but there will technically be two different fight cards.
For betting purposes, though, this really doesn’t matter.
Just make sure you get your play in on time.
BetOnline.AG has the betting odds for each brother’s fight.
Let’s look at those and see if we are going to take 1 brother, 2, or none.
Jermell Charlo (-450) vs Jeison Rosario (+360)
Jermell with the “e” is the younger Charlo twin by 60 seconds and the lighter of the two brothers as well.

He is the WBA, WBC, and IBF Light Middleweight Champion of the World.
Jermell’s only blemish to his professional boxing record came when he lost a unanimous decision to American Tony Harrison at the Barclays Center over Christmas time in 2018.
Charlo had a rematch clause in the contract so he fought a warm up fight and 364 days after his first defeat, Jermell left no doubt as he TKO’ed Harrison in the 11th round.
That was his last fight, though, so there may be a little rust early on.
Every once in a while, you see everything come together for a fighter and it’s usually around the age of 29 or 30.
We may bear witness to that on Saturday night but Jermell will have his hands full with Dominican, Jeison Rosario.
Rosario is 20-1-1 and is coming off the biggest win of his career.
On the 18th of January this year before the COV became a known problem in the US, Rosario challenged Julian Williams for some other boxing belts at Light Middleweight.
Jeison TKO’ed Julian in front of his hometown Philly crowd in the 5th!
Only Bill Burr can say he did better than that.
Oh, and Clubber Lang too.
Both fighters are coming off of fights where they won world titles by finishing their opponent.
That is pretty awesome right there.
These two men are not stylistically similar, though, at all.
Jermell is your typical blue chip guy. He has been boxing forever. He’s a natural.
- He is fast.
He will have an athleticism edge over his Dominican foe.
Homeless as a teenager, Jeison Rosario had to find shelter and food.
He got that through boxing and later, he got out because of boxing.
Now a world champion and helping hundreds if not thousands back home in the D.R., Jeison is preparing for the fight of his life.
He is used to being the underdog, though, and this guy really embodies that word-underdog.
Especially the dog part.
He walks his opponents down no matter what. He grew up fighting in the street and out there, you don’t have a great deal of time, and your cardio sucks, so you get after pretty quick.
We all know that. Can’t hang around until the cops show up either.
Jeison is not going to outbox Jermell Charlo on Saturday but he has a chance to knock him out.
- Even with a couple of 10-8 rounds, a decision win will be tough for Rosario.
- Let’s see if there is a method of victory prop we might take a stab at.
You can get him at more than a 5 to 1 favorite to get the KO.
If Jermell had ever shown to be chinny, then maybe but I don’t think he will get it done.
The under 9.5 rounds is trending and I can see why.
No, Jeison has never been stopped before in his professional boxing career but he has never faced anyone nearly as sharp and powerful as Charlo.
Rosario is tough, yes. He is durable, yes.
He does come forward, though, and Charlo is going to run him into something clean.
The under 9.5 is about the same at (-135) so you could go that route but we are still leaving 2.5 rounds on the table.
The decision pays (+260) but that seems like a trap to me.
I could be wrong, of course, but with the under trending and the sportsbook putting him at minus money on a method of victory tells me that he is probably going to get the finish.
Jermall Charlo (-180) vs Sergiy Derevyanchenko (+160)
Jermall is the world champ at 160 pounds, which is full middleweight if you will.
He is undefeated at 30-0 and is definitely the more outspoken of the two brothers.
The two brothers are quite similar but I give the slickness edge to Jermell and the power to Jermall.
His opponent on Saturday in the main event is a very dangerous but more difficult fighter to deal with, Ukrainian Sergiy Dervyanchenko.
In mixed martial arts, if their name ends in a V, you might have a hard fight.
In boxing lately, it’s the “chenko’s”.
Sergiy’s countryman, Vasyl Lomachenko, is preparing for one of if not the biggest fight of his professional career in a few weeks.
Ukraine is looking great and I just saw Americans could travel there so that’s pretty rad.
About this matchup, Jermall is
- More Athletic
He has more power on his shots as well.
Sergiy is a volume guy who loves to stick his head in your chest and go to work.
He is coming off of a performance of a lifetime against GGG and before that, he looked great against Daniel Jacobs as well.
He still lost those fights, though.
The Ukrainian isn’t just a brawler, though, or he would have been finished by GGG easily.
He is very skilled and has the style and ability to make it a very close fight on Saturday.
Charlo hasn’t been fighting the world’s best as of late like his opponent and boy, has the media let him hear about it!
The time is now, man!
I think that’s why he accepted the fight with Sergiy. I don’t think many Middleweights are lining up to fight this Ukranian who just went the distance with GGG who stays in your face for 36 minutes.
Jermall wants to prove a point. Hopefully, he won’t be swinging too hard too early because he is going to need his endurance more than ever if this fight makes it to the championship rounds.
The betting odds were at a pick’em a day ago and a ton of money has come in on Charlo.
I think that was smart money.
As much as I would like to see the cocky boxer who has been cherry picking opponents, get his against a hungry Ukrainian pressure fighter, I don’t think it will happen on Saturday.
I believe the value is still there, though, on Jermall Charlo at (-180).
I think he wins a unanimous decision.
I love MMA but there is something special about boxing to me.
Maybe, it’s because I started watching boxing before mixed martial arts.
I think the reason I enjoy boxing so much is because of the level.
You aren’t going to see hands this good in the cage.
Conor is pretty sharp and he showed that in his fight with Floyd Mayweather and sure, there are some MMA guys who would light some pro boxers up but come on.
We can’t sit here and try to say UFC fighters have nearly the hand speed that we see from pro boxers.
Jermall and Jermell Charlo are both your typical blue chip boxers.
My only knock on them right now is their level of opponents at this point in their respective careers.
They like to be the A-side and that’s fine. You will likely have more brain cells when you retire but you have to live with those shoulda woulda coulda’s forever.
They don’t go anywhere.
This weekend is a big step in the right direction for both men as they are challenging themselves with opposing styles-pressure fighters that won’t give them an inch.
I love that and the fights should be entertaining.
Get your bets in now and tune in on Saturday night for the pugilism party.
