THE LOWDOWN

TONY HARRISON

  • Harrison had to withdraw from the originally scheduled rematch in June due to injury. So, he has not fought for a year since that unanimous decision win over Charlo to claim the WBC super welterweight title.
  • Harrison is a powerful fighter and used his three and a half inch reach advantage very effectively in the first fight and fought more calculatedly - sticking behind his jab whilst remaining illusive and avoiding the power shots.
  • Harrison has only had two title fights in his career. He lost his first one back in 2017 after getting finished by Jarrett Hurd for the vacant IBF super welterweight title but after beating Charlo last year, he will be making his first defence.

JERMELL CHARLO

  • Charlo lost his WBC title a year ago and after Harrison pulled out of the rematch in June Charlo remained on the card as Jorge Cota stepped up as a replacement. He violently knocked Cota out in the third round to get back in the win column and remain active.
  • Harrison only has a 50% knockout ratio but he has dangerous knockout power. His loss to Harrison is also the only blemish on his record which was highly disputed, with many believing Charlo did enough to earn the decision.
  • Charlo is the identical twin brother of Jermall who is coming off a TKO last week over Dennis Hogan to retain his WBC middleweight title.

THE PREDICTION

This is likely to be similar to their first encounter. Charlo is going to look to be the aggressor but may keep more in reserve to finish stronger. Harrison has the speed to land the jab consistently again, but Charlo is expected to come in fully prepared to swing the points in his favour this time.

Winner: Charlo via Decision
