Jermell Charlo Suggests Tim Tszyu’s Profitable Efficiency Over Tony Harrison Could Have Been Aided By Australian Faucet Water


We now have been ready and ready to see Jermell Charlo defend his 154 pound titles and his supremacy on the weight in opposition to Tim Tszyu for some time now. For numerous totally different causes, the battle has been postponed greater than as soon as, and now, with Charlo’s hand nonetheless therapeutic, the unbeaten Tszyu will keep busy with a battle in opposition to Carlos Ocampo this weekend. Charlo, 35-1-1(19) and inactive since Could of final yr, spoke about Tszyu final night time on Showtime, and the unified 154 pound champion had some fairly odd issues to say in regards to the man he’s now anticipated to battle round September or October time.

Charlo, who like Tszyu has fought Tony Harrison (twice, Harrison beating Charlo by choice in fight-one, with Charlo scoring a late KO within the return assembly), stated he thinks that “one thing ain’t proper with him [Harrison],” as in there was one thing not proper with Harrison when he fought Tsyzu and was stopped again in March of this yr. Charlo has a fairly far-out and weird principle on what may need been unsuitable with Harrison.

Charlo suggests the faucet water in Australia might have aided Tszyu, this as a result of the water down below has an quantity of salt in it.

“One thing about Australia,” Charlo started. “I do know for a reality he (Harrison) didn’t have his enterprise orientation as properly. They most likely put him up in a pleasant lodge …. they’ve good accommodations everywhere in the world…however the secret factor about Australia is that they acquired a bit of salt of their water. So simply rehydrating goes to be unhealthy. Simply by the best way you shedding your weight, reducing then placing salt water in your physique, you holding on…..possibly the burden minimize was the problem. I’m not attempting to make an excuse for him however…’s a bit of totally different over there.”

I don’t learn about you, however that is the primary time I’ve ever heard a fighter say the water in Australia can have an effect on the end result of a battle there. Many fighters from abroad have boxed in Australia they usually have by no means stated something in any respect in regards to the water ‘down below’ (or if they’ve I by no means learn it, please enlighten me if you realize of a fighter who pointed to the water in Australia as an element within the end result of their battle).

Charlo insists he has far an excessive amount of expertise for Tszyu and that he’ll beat him when the battle lastly occurs. Some folks, nevertheless, really feel Tszyu, together with his cool, assured strategy, has gotten below Charlo’s pores and skin a bit of. Who is aware of?

However Charlo once more had some fairly odd issues to say when describing his personal brilliance within the ring:

“I positively know for a proven fact that no person else in boxing has what I possess within the ring, particularly at my weight,” Charlo stated. “I’m a a lot bigger fighter than folks assume. My arms are sooner and longer, I pack a unique punch, my lateral motion is ridiculous. I can’t sing, however I can dance. I’m an artist within the ring.”

One would assume, listening to Charlo, that he was an undefeated fighter. He isn’t, and Tszyu and his supporters really feel Charlo will lose for a second time when the delayed battle lastly takes place. The way in which he’s been speaking, one can solely think about the justifications Charlo will make ought to he lose to Tszyu!

Within the meantime, let’s see how Tszyu, 22-0(16) will get on with Ocampo, 35-2(23) on the weekend.
