Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix brought boxing star Jermall Charlo on his podcast and it turned into a flaming dumpster fire. Mannix eventually mentions the plethora of fighters to choose from and that pushed every button of the World Champion.

Jermall Charlo took his sentiment as a slight that he’s ducking fights and isn’t fighting the best available. Chris Mannix’s job is to be annoying and ask the questions his viewers would be most interested in hearing. The response from Charlo should be to defend his 30-0 record, but he has to be prepared for this question.
“All I gotta do is fight and win. I have to be the best I can be, Charlo said.
No where in his answer does he address handpicking the toughest fights he can scrounge together. Any fighter’s job is to select the fights that make them the most money and that’s a hard reality for non-athletes to cope with. His undefeated record runs up PPV money by itself, so he should always be weary of the fights he accepts.
“If you understand boxing you wouldn’t ask questions like this. If you don’t, you’ll keep asking me stuff like this.”
All he’s saying is I have business to take care of before anything else. Charlo HAS TO defend the fights he chooses on air, otherwise he risks buzz-killing future bouts.
Doesn’t take away how funny boxers look going full T.O on people who never threw a punch in their lives. The internet is a bizarre place.
