As WBC junior middleweight champion Jermell Charlo gets set to defend his title against Austin Trout next weekend, he holds an open media workout with trainer Derrick James. In this video caught by our friends at Fight Hub TV, you can watch Charlo go through a full mitt routine as he practices picking and placing hard shots with real accuracy.
Charlo (30-0, 15 KOs) is most recently coming off a stunning first round knockout over blue chip prospect Erickson Lubin last October and has since been likening Jaime Munguia to Lubin, warning not to put “little kids” in front of him.
Meanwhile Trout (31-4, 17 KOs) is coming off a bounce-back win over Juan De Angel in February after getting stopped by Jarrett Hurd last fall. This could likely be his last shot at a world title and he’ll be trying everything he can to get over the hump in this one.
