IBF Junior Middleweight Champion Jermall Charlo and undefeated No. 1 contender Julian Williams have been on a collision course for years as two of the rising stars of the stacked 154-pound division. The speculation about “this fight that had to happen” ends this Saturday, when the 26-year-olds settle their business in the ring live on SHOWTIME at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.
In the SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING® main event, hard-hitting WBA Featherweight World Champion Jesus Cuellar will defend his belt against former three-time world champion Abner Mares from USC’s Galen Center in Los Angeles. Both confident, elite 126-pounders will enter the ring with new trainers; Cuellar is now coached by Freddie Roach and Mares by Robert Garcia.
