BoxNation viewers will get the chance to witness history in the making come Saturday night.
Identical twins Jermell and Jermall Charlo get the chance to become World Champions in the same weight division.
Speaking on a pre-fight media call the 25 year old brothers discussed sibling rivalry and writing their name in the history books.
“It's pretty intense. You know, we compete with each other about who's in the best shape; and it's sibling rivals but never actual rivals. So, my competition is greater than just beating John Jackson. It's just performing well in front of my twin brother, who will be in the back locker room cheering me on,” explained Jermell.
Fighting for his first World Title against John Jackson for the vacant WBC crown, the slightly shorter twin Jermell continued: “This is my opportunity, this is my chance, this is my moment. My brother's had his before. He's going to defend his title, and I'm excited to be in the same venue fighting on the same card with my twin brother.”
Jermall is the older of the two, by a solitary minute. He defends his IBF World strap against Austin Trout this Saturday night.
“I'm inspired by my twin brother but we compete. I guess that's what keeps pushing us above and beyond. I can't wait for him to fight and for him to do what he has to do,” explained the 23-0 star.
The running order is yet to be finalised, which will firm up who the added pressure lies on with going second into the ring.
“I'm not trying to put pressure on my brother, I just know, I need him to go, do his job in that we both come out victorious and make history,” stated the reigning World Champion.
Could the pair potentially meet in a bid to potentially unify the division further down the line?
“I'm pretty sure the fans and the people around the world wouldn't want to see twin brothers that train with each other and have the same tactics fight each other. So I'm not really entertaining the fact, no,” dismissed Jermall.
