Jermall Charlo retained his WBC middleweight title against Juan Macias Montiel then called up Gennadiy Golovkin |  Boxing News

Jermall Charlo easily outscored Juan Macias Montiel in a WBC middleweight title defense on Saturday night in Texas before challenging Gennadiy Golovkin and Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.

Charlo won by unanimous decision in a one-sided fight in his hometown of Houston before demanding that the big-name duo come and face him next.

He’s now undefeated in 32 fights – Golovkin holds the IBF belt in the same division while Canelo is WBA, WBC and WBO super middleweight champion.

Jermall Charlo hopes to fight Golovkin

Charlo put on a dominant display and was only deprived of a stopping victory by the bravery and courage of his challenger.

Montiel was beaten and clearly injured in a particularly dominant fifth round for Charlo, but never gave in.

A save seemed inevitable on the sixth when Charlo hammered Montiel at will but somehow he never fell.

Remarkably, Montiel fought well in the second half, opening a small cut above Charlo’s eye, although he never threatened the inevitable outcome.

The judges scored the fight against defending champions 120-108, 119-109 and 118-109.

Charlo said: “160 is my weight division. I want to unify. I want to put Golovkin in the ring. I want to bring Canelo here to Houston.”

Vasiliy Lomachenko is live on Sky Sports in his comeback fight against Las Vegas’ Masayoshi Nakatani next weekend.
