Post fight review

The Charlo twins made history to become the first siblings to hold World Titles, in the same weight category at the same time.

After Jermall Charlo successfully defending his IBF World Title with a points victory over Austin Trout it was down to Jermell to collect the WBC Title to ensure history was made.

Despite being down on the cards, the "Iron Man" sensationally stopped John Jackson in the eighth round to claim the vacant WBC World Title.

Topping the show, Erislandy Lara put in a solid display to retain his WBA World Title with a convincing points win over Vanes Martirosyan, who had a point deducted late to seal his fate.

Our very own Liam Smith will be looking at a potential unification bout with one of the Charlo Twins in the 154 lbs division.

Pre fight preview

A night of triple World Title action is topped by Erislandy Lara’s WBA Super-Welterweight Title defence against Vanes Martirosyan.

It’s a rematch of their 2012 World Title eliminator which was cut short after Martirosyan shed blood in the ninth round after an accidental clash of heads which resulted in the contest being ruled a technical draw.

The pair have exchanged a war of words in the build up to the fight, reflecting on their past meeting. Now they can settle the score once and for all.

‘The Nightmare’ Martirosyan gets his second shot at World honours after coming up short against Demetrius Andrade at the back end of 2013.

Defending Champion Lara will be looking to make it four wins on the spin following his split decision loss to Canelo Alvarez in July 2014.

Victory for either man would put them in the frame for some lucrative options during the rest of 2016 and beyond.

Armenia born, Californian based Martirosyan could easily pass as a double for our very own Bradley Skeete! See for yourself come Saturday night!

Triple World Title Action

The IBF World Super-Welterweight Championship

Completing the trio of World Title action is Jermall Charlo’s third IBF World Super-Welterweight Title defence, this time against Austin Trout.

After demolishing the experienced Cornelius Bundrage to collect his first World Title back in September 2015, Charlo then followed up with a fourth round stoppage over Wilky Campfort in November to make a successful first defence.

Trout, who was recently installed as mandatory to Liam Smith’s WBO World Title opted to challenge Charlo rather than fulfil his obligations to take on ‘Beefy’.

It’s an opportunity for the southpaw challenge to become a two time World Champion. His two defeats have come against the classy Erislandy Lara and Canelo Alvarez.

Big unification bouts await the winner!

The vacant WBC World Super-Welterweight Championship

Sharing the bill with twin brother Jermall, Jermell has the chance to become a World Champion for the first time.

He takes on John Jackson for the vacant WBC version of the World Title which was previously held by Floyd Mayweather.

The ‘Iron Man’ has notable victories over Gabriel Rosado and Vanes Martirosyan on his resume but holds just one stoppage win in his last seven fights, against Joachim Alcine last time out.

BoxNation viewers will recall John Jackson, who managed to drop Andy Lee before getting knocked out cold back in June 2014.
