    Jermell Charlo Stops Harry Yorgey on Showtime

    Jermell Charlo met Harry Yorgey in Showtime's TV opener on Saturday night, in a scrap on the undercard of the Lucas Matthysse-Mike Dallas main event at the Hard Rock-The Joint in Las Vegas. Charlo got the W, as his twin brother Jermall looked on happily, stopping Yorgey in round eight. A jab froze Yorgey and the right hand discombombulated the loser, at 1:09 of the eighth.
    In the first round of the junior middleweight scrap, Charlo, from Texas, popped the jab on the Pennsylvania foe. The 22 year old favorite Charlo looked calm and confident.
    In round two, the 35 year-old went down, off a right-left hook got up, and then went down again, from a right. He grabbed and held with a minute left. He managed to make it to round's end. In the third, Yorgey again was in backing-up mode. Not sure what his gameplan was at this point, as he wasn't looking to counter off mistakes. The rounds were carbon copies, until late in the fifth, when Yorgey started to come forward. A right hand had Yorgey taking a knee in the eighth. He beat the count, but looked stricken and the ref waved it off.
    Charlo rose to 20-0 while Yorgey is now 25-2-1. Charlo went 144-411 to 29-155 for Yorgey.

    Wow! The twin would be a 1-8-7 in progress. He is a birdy just outta the nest. He is not ready for the game's best! Canelo and Trout would knock him out. At even the mid-level dawgs, he ain't ready to shout! Holla!

    I didn't mean it literally!! What im saying is most people thought he would lose and this is no different. I'm one of the few people who thinks Charlo could (key word could) beat Trout or Canelo.

    First time I ever saw the Charlo twins... now I see where Lara has been getting the good sparring from. The kid is young and strong, you rarely see the limited Harry Joe Yorgey get relegated to a mere punching back for the entire fight. Or maybe he just got old overnight. Easy work... I'd like to see what Charlo can do against someone who can move. but overall not a bad look for the kid.
