World Weekend Roundup: Charlo Twins, Lara, Shumenov, Lebedev, Win

By Wellington Amadulu May 24th, 2016 All Boxing Results

There were a handful of world title bouts that took place over the weekend with the biggest fight card happening at The Cosmopolitan in America's boxing capital, Las Vegas on Saturday evening.

There were three light middleweight world titles along with one at cruiserweight, on the line in that venue's Chelsea Ballroom, with the Charlo twins, Jermell and Jermall, Erislandy Lara and Beibut Shumenov all emerging victorious.

Making the second defense of his IBF crown, Jermall Charlo, 24-0 (18), had the toughest assignment of the night in facing the challenge posed by ex-WBA titlist Austin Trout, 30-3 (17).

Southpaw Trout used good movement, angles and an edge in experience to give the taller Charlo a good bit of difficulty throughout the fight, zipping in many sharp counters but the younger champion was busier and more aggressive, landing the weightier punches.

Charlo was more effective in the early going while Trout gained momentum in the later rounds but the challenger could never hurt or even back off the Houston based champion.

The judges at ringside favored Charlo's efforts, awarding him all the cards on margins of 116-112, 116-112 and 115-113.

It was a good win for Charlo, facing the best opponent of his career to date and even in defeat, Trout gave his career a boost by turning in a gutty performance.

Contending for the vacant WBC strap were Jermell Charlo, 28-0 (13), and John Jackson, 20-3 (15), son of former two-weight world champion Julian Jackson.

Jackson was on the move for the entire duration of the bout, never presenting Charlo a stationary target while surprising his adversary with crisp, effective boxing. More...
