CHARLO STOPS HARRISON TO RECLAIM WBC SUPER WELTERWEIGHT TITLE
ONTARIO, Calif. (December 21, 2019) - Jermell Charlo reclaimed the WBC Super Welterweight Championship from Tony Harrison with a blistering stoppage at 2:08 of the 11th round in a FOX PBC Fight Night main event and on FOX Deportes from Toyota Arena in Ontario, Calif.
Charlo (33-1, 17 KOs) lost the title to Harrison (28-3, 21 KOs) by unanimous decision last December. In the buildup to the rematch, there was much animosity between the two boxers. The heated atmosphere surrounding the fight made for a much-anticipated grudge match.
"I got the belt back and I didn't leave it up to the judges,'' Charlo said. "Tony is a former champion. He had a lot on the line. I dominated and I knocked him out."
Charlo dropped Harrison for the first time in the second frame. He said it was a signal to let Harrison know that his power was real.
"It let him know that the power was real and 2020 is going to be real,'' Charlo said. "It's going to get loud.''
Harrison didn't argue with the stoppage.
