Jermell Charlo knocks out Charles Hatley to retain WBC junior welterweight title

JERMELL Charlo used a series of straight right hands before a huge right knocked out Charles Hatley — literally — as Charlo defended his WBC junior middleweight title with a sixth-round knockout.

In a total mismatch during which Charlo won every round and knocked down Hatley in the third with another right, Charlo moved to 29-0 with 14 knockouts. He never gave Hatley a chance to do any damage, and after the third, Hatley mostly was on the run.

But he couldn’t avoid that powerhouse right, and the knockout punch sent Hatley (26-2-1) straight to the canvas. His cornermen rushed into the ring along with fight doctors, and a stretcher was brought over. But Hatley got up woozily after several minutes and sat on a stool.

Meanwhile, the 26-year-old Charlo, of Houston, celebrated a rather easy defence of the crown he won from John Jackson last May.
