Unified junior middleweight titleholder Jarrett Hurd is looking to add one more belt to his collection as he calls out WBC champion Jermell Charlo for a title unification match. Yesterday evening Hurd took to Twitter to post this message aimed in Charlo’s direction.

Hurd (22-0, 15 KOs) is most recently coming off a split decision win over Erislandy Lara in April which followed a stoppage win over Austin Trout last fall. Meanwhile Charlo (31-0, 15 KOs) just took a majority decision over Trout last weekend in a fairly dull affair.

The style match-up between Hurd and Charlo could make for fireworks, but really the way Hurd fights is conducive to actions fights regardless as he brings a ton of pressure and punches for 12 rounds.

As of now it remains to be seen if this potential fight comes together in the near future, but if it does, who would you favor in that match-up?
