Jermall “Hitman” Charlo has been fighting alongside twin brother Jermell his whole life, sharing the mantra of “Lions Only” as the siblings take aim at standing side-by-side atop the 154-pound division. Although Jermall started his pro career nine months after his brother, he became the first Charlo twin to claim a world title.

Keeping it in the family

With the Twitter handle @FutureofBoxing, Jermall Charlo is making a statement. He is not to be confused with his younger-by-a-minute twin, Jermell, a 154-pound title contender himself who uses the more modest @CharloTwin handle.

Jermall and his brother were born in Lafayette, Louisiana, but raised in Houston. They were 8 years old when their father, Kevin, a former amateur boxer, first took them to the gym as a way to offer them a positive, disciplined environment.

The siblings both competed in other sports growing up, playing football and basketball in high school, but they kept gravitating toward boxing.

While Jermell turned pro in 2007, Jermall continued on as an amateur with hopes of competing in the 2008 Olympics.

A toe injury kept him from that dream, however, and Jermall ended his amateur career that year with a record of 65-6.

Slow slow, fast finishes

Charlo made his professional debut on September 12, 2008, with a second-round TKO of Cimarron Davis in Grand Prairie, Texas, not far from his Houston home.

Competing largely in his brother’s shadow early on, Jermall fought just once in both 2010 and 2011, and gained little notice as he went 12-0 with eight KOs.

Charlo got his chance to shine in the spotlight in April 2013, though, when he faced Mexican veteran Orlando Lora at the Alamodome in San Antonio on the undercard of the Austin Trout-Saul “Canelo” Alvarez pay-per-view.

Lora, nearly nine years older than Charlo, entered the fight 29-3-2 with 19 KOs, but Charlo controlled his more experienced opponent and gained a fifth-round stoppage.

Charlo seized the momentum with four more wins in 2013. He put Luis Hernandez down twice in the second round to gain a stoppage in June, took Antwone Smith out in the second round in August, finished off Rogelio De La Torre in the seventh in September and finished the year with a fifth-round KO of Joseph De Los Santos in December.

Closing in on a title

Under the tutelage of trainer Ronnie Shields, Charlo climbed to 17-0 and put himself in position for a title shot. He was scheduled to face 154-pound world champion Carlos Molina in a March 2014 title bout, but the fight was scrapped just days before the match.

Charlo stayed active, though, gaining a third-round stoppage of Hector Munoz in Carson, California, in April, as he waited to see if he would get his shot at Molina.

After the window closed on that opportunity, Charlo kept his focus with a seventh-round TKO of Norberto Gonzalez in September.

Charlo closed 2014 with a third-round KO of Italian veteran Lenny Bottai in Las Vegas in December, his 14th straight stoppage win.

The KO streak came to an end in March 2015, although Charlo took all 10 rounds on all three judges’ cards to win a unanimous decision over Michael Finney and set up a title shot against champion Cornelius Bundrage.
