The outspoken middleweight titleholder shares his thoughts on some big fights out there for him.

During the latest installment of Brian Custer’s Last Stand Podcast, WBC middleweight titleholder Jermall Charlo chats it up about the current state of his career, who he’s looking to fight, and reacts to some notable opponents we’d all like to see him in the ring against. Check out some excerpts from the interview below, with the full video above.

Charlo on trying to land a Gennadiy Golovkin fight

“I’m trying to lock in this Triple G fight, I’m letting you know first. That’s kind of what I’ve been working on. At least that will give me a little more stepping power to say I can fight Canelo.”

On fighting David Benavidez

“Lets make that fight happen, I’m going to knock his little punk ass out! I promise that, I put that on everything I love, I give him about four rounds, five rounds, before I knock him out in five rounds, six rounds no more. He get hit too much, I’m powerful, I’ll explode on him, I do my thing…trust me. I’ve been doing this all my life, put me in there. I’m a lion, lets get it.”

On Canelo Alvarez

“We were at 154 together, 160 together, and if I campaign at 168 we’re at 168 together. I haven’t gotten a call from them, I don’t know what the hype is all about but I have not gotten a call from their camp. Their camp has not called me, they have not tried to initiate a fight, they have not even gone to the negotiation levels, so don’t listen to the hype.”

On potentially fighting Demetrius Andrade

“This clown, nobody knows him…I would blow his f*#king mind with these straight right hands, and I promise you he can’t even last five or six rounds. That pressure is different out here!”

On his plans to move up to 168

“I want to unify like my brother did. At 160, at least let me unify, let me capture the division, there’s somebody when can unify, we can fight. It don’t matter who got the belt. Maybe like two to three more fights.”
