Prediction,

I think Charlo is the business, might be the best in his division already, he might not be, he hasn't had the opportunity to prove it yet, but he has the Trout win, was a world champion at 154, made a statement with his 2nd round KO of Centeno, and has the Julian Williams win, but Charlo still unproven to an extent, and his resume doesn't compare to that of Saul Alvarez.

Matt Korobov is underrated in my opinion, he was winning against Andy Lee, he got stopped, but Lee was good enough to win a world title, he was experienced, it was his time, and he came out with a great stoppage win. Korobob beat Jose Uzcategui in 2014, that's a brilliant win. Korobov was a good amateur, was a 2008 Olympian, won gold in 2 world amateur championship tournaments, beat Sergiy Derevyanchenko. As a professional, Korobov has just the one loss.

Korobov is 35 now, he took damage against Lee, not that much, and he shouldn't have too many miles, but he is still 35, and more importantly, since the Lee loss, 4 years ago, he has had small fights, no 10 round fights, was out for a year, got 3 wins in 2016, then took another year out, and back in March, came back with a 6 round UD win against a 16-12 opponent. Korobov has won 4 in a row, but 4 fights in as many years is poor activity, and none of those 4 opponents had less than 8 losses, Brian Vera might be his best win since the Lee loss. Korobov's resume, overall, is not great, only 2 of his fights are notable at world level I would say, but he still has the Uzcategui win, which backs up that he is world level, and he was out boxing Lee, was well ahead on the scorecards, so based on 2014, I think Korobov is good, but he must have declined a lot since the Lee fight, he hasn't been so inactive he might as well have been retired, because he did go 8 rounds 3 times on the spin after the Lee fight, hasn't had a damaging career, but is still past his best, given his age, and his opposition and lack of activity in the last 4 years.

Charlo is a phenomenal puncher, has a lot of power, is very dangerous, but it is his timing, precision, outstanding, that right uppercut that finished Julian Williams, that was a brilliant shot, Charlo's ability to box going backwards hasn't been tested, he hasn't needed foot speed, but he can cut off the ring, can walk his opponent down. Charlo's defence hasn't been great when I've seen him fight, but the only time I've seen him struggle, need his defence and lacked it was against Trout, in his other fights, his opponent hasn't been able to have any authority.

Korobov is awkward, has some skills, so early in the fight, he might give Charlo a challenge, might have some success, even make the early rounds close, by doing good work off the back foot, but Charlo will be patient, cut off the ring, get his jab working, and as the rounds go on, he will time Korobov, set him up, do damage whenever he lands clean, and at some stage, maybe in round 7, Charlo will execute a brilliantly timed, accurate shot, and get the KO.

Charlo might struggle at times in this fight specifically because of the late opponent switch, Korobov is better than Monroe in my opinion, but although they are both southpaws, Korobov and Monroe, they are not the same fighter, could be a factor.

Korobov has nothing to lose, the pressure is on Charlo big time, if he doesn't beat Korobov and beat him well, if he really struggles against Korobov, questions will be asked.

Hopefully, Alvarez will be ordered to fight Charlo, this is not his first interim title fight, Alvarez should not be allowed to go to 168 and keep the belts at 160, delay the title fight process at 160. I wonder if Alvarez and his team, if De La Hoya will want him to fight Charlo, they might vacate the belt like Alvarez did to avoid Golovkin (younger than the Golovkin he edged out), Alvarez might stay at 168. If Alvarez vs Charlo happens next year, Alvarez would be the heavy favourite, with the wins over Cotto, Lara, Golovkin most of all, his resume is on a different level, but I think Charlo beats Alvarez.

Just heard today from Canelo's team that are strong talks of staying at 168, as they think(at least that seemed to be the implication) Zurdo and Benavidez are both beatable, but also could be big Latin American events for their holidays.

Yeah I heard that, Clenelo doesn't want Charlo and Andrade. Good fights at 168 though for Alvarez, I 100% think Callum Smith beats him at 168, and I think Fielding will give him a tough fight. Alvarez is too small at 168, he should remain at 160, he is in his prime, he should fight Charlo next year, at some point, unify, but if he doesn't, and does go to a division which is less competitive, then he shouldn't be allowed to just hold the belts hostage.

I'm actually kind of excited for this fight to happen... a lot of people want Charlo vs GGG but I don't think Charlo is ready for that yet. Good fight in the since that Monroe is a tricky fighter and has gone rounds with some of the best in his division... (12 with saunders, 6 with G,) however I think Charlo will have a lot of problems here. I don't think Charlo will stop him and I think monroe actually might have a chance to pull an upset. MIGHT. I think Charlo UD but if Monroe can really be focused and try his best he's going to surprise some people.

We'll see, but Monroe lacks heart, desire in my opinion, lacks output, power, and I think this will be an easy fight for Charlo. If this goes 12 and Monroe wins 4 rounds then Charlo isn't as good as I think he is.

Yup! We'll see brother lol

I know some people think this is a more competitive matchup than Charlo vs. Monroe, and it is on paper, but Korobov is really washed up. It will likely be more entertaining than the Monroe fight given how terrible Monroe is to watch, however, I would be surprised if Korobov made it out of the middle rounds given his age, inactivity, and out of the ring questions.

I think even a washed Korobov should provide more of a fight than Monroe. I, too, would be shocked to see him go far. But I'd watch 5-7 rounds of Korobov who will come to fight, over any amount of Monroe fighting so damn negative. I can't think of a fighter I enjoy watching less than Monroe. Been hearing some rumors on the Charlos though, and their use of USADA rather than VADA raising some eyebrows. Not accusing them, but was seeing what you thought of it. Have just read/heard more about it this week, given how Monroe went out of this fight.

He may provide more of a fight, but even without factoring in Korobov's negatives, stylistically he will present more openings for Charlo. Monroe's boring defensive style would likely give him a chance to last longer at the viewer's expense. There are rumors that Korobov does not take care of himself and that is why he has had a lot of inactivity since the Lee loss. What I will say regarding the Charlo brothers missing a VADA test is that it is within the realm of possibility there wasn't any malicious intent. To my knowledge, for Jermall to hold the interim title he has to be enrolled in the WBC's clean boxing program which uses VADA. To my knowledge, USADA uses the same WADA labs and testing that VADA uses, so there isn't really a difference in the quality of testing. However, I have heard quite a few times that the WBC's clean boxing program is underfunded and isn't testing as much as it should. For example, with the funding USADA receives from the UFC they test UFC athletes quite a lot and there was some notable drop off in performances from certain athletes e.g. Johnny Hendricks. Doping, in general, is a cat and mouse game and I do not believe that most elite athletes are clean, but that does not mean that testing agencies are wasting their time by making it more difficult for athletes to cheat and occasionally catching guys like BJS and Monroe. If someone is enrolled in USADA/VADA testing and are passing the tests, I won't complain about the possibility that they are using PEDs because they are passing the highest level of testing available. I would assume that Jermall is in good standing with the WBC's clean boxing program and therefore Jermall is in good standing with their VADA testing for this fight, but I don't know what testing, if any, Jermell is using.

Ryan Martin just popped on a WBC clean boxing program/VADA test from the Josh Taylor fight, so there's another example of the value of drug testing even if they can't and don't catch everyone.

I guess this puts those rumors about Korobov to the test.

I was honestly surprised with how Korobov looked at the weigh-ins. He was supposed to be fighting an eight-round undercard fight and showed up in nearly as good of shape as Charlo. How his inactivity and rumored out of the ring issues affect him are still unanswered questions, but we won't have to wait long to see what his form is. If Korobov puts on a spirited effort in losing while coming in on less than a weeks notice, I think that would definitely raise his profile and his stock.

Man...what corruption tonight. Two robberies, the love and hate of boxing. You can think Charlo won, but Christ, there is no way in hell that fight was 119-108. That card might even be worse than 118-110 to Canelo.

This fight makes me think that there was actually something to the rumors of people ducking Korobov after he lost to Lee, I rate Jermall a lot higher than Jermell and Korobov had Jermall puzzled at times, Korobov's skills are real.

They are for sure, and this was while he was preparing for an 8 round fight at 168. Off of inactivity at this level and at a much older age than Jermall. He could have had a great career if he had been managed well and money was behind him. He should have been moved much faster towards the title, and after a somewhat fluke loss, he never got a chance at another impact fight till tonight. Unfortunately, he has gotten the short end of the stick over his career.

I now believe that Korobov got ducked as you do. Arum even said it, and he was talking about a TR fighter(Gilberto Ramirez).

Unfortunately for Korobov, he's not a big puncher like Kovalev or Golovkin and doesn't have an eye catching style like Lomachenko, so he was destined to be a high-risk low reward opponent if he wasn't holding a title. I still think he can beat some good contender level fighters over the next year or two before age really catches up to him, but it is really difficult to see him ever winning a title. I think a few years ago Korobov would have beat Ramirez, Ramirez is not a puncher and would really struggle with the setups and counters Korobov could bring.

I wonder if they would rematch him versus Uzcategui considering they are both with PBC? Not like Uzcategui is a draw at all either and a rematch versus Korobov may be a good option.

I could see that possibly happening if Uzcategui doesn't try to avoid him. If he is willing to fight, that is probably Korobov's best chance to get a meaningful fight.

119-108 FOH man! Another rigged ass scorecard. PBC protecting their fighters

Past his prime at age 35, coming off of more than a year long lay off, preparing for an 8 round fight, and then being told on a week's notice he's be fighting Charlo, and Korobov still gave Charlo one of the toughest fights of his career. In what was meant to be a showcase for Jermall I found my self far more impressed with his challenger than him. Overall I'd say PBC's Fox debut didn't go to plan. One guy they were trying to sell got robbed and the other just looked kind of inept.

Plus he was preparing for a a fight at 168 pounds. It is really a shame Korobov won't get another opportunity and that those scorecards never gave him a fair chance. Had he been probably developed/promoted, he could have been a special boxer.

I think Jermall is significantly better than Jermell, he beat a younger, fresher Trout, he seems to be better at learning in the job and making adjustments in fight, seems to deal with it better when his opponent gives him problems, but still, he might not be as good as I thought. I think Jermall is still a threat to anyone in the division, it is hard to take much from this fight because he was obviously affected by Jermell's loss, but still, Korobov should not have been able to win 4 rounds, and in that last round, when he had Korobov in trouble, he should have finished him, if he is as good as I thought he was. Based on this performance, Alvarez beats Charlo without too much trouble, and Golovkin still has enough left to beat him as well.

Honestly,I think Korobov is extremely underrated too. But either way he's certainly no Canelo or, Golovkin either of whom would KO Charlo without much problem.

It's a shame that this was probably Korobov's last chance to become a world champion, because he really won me over in this fight.
