World Boxing Council middleweight champion, Jermall Charlo, received a renaissance motivation last week, with the birth of his daughter, as the December 7 date of defending his title against Dennis Hogan nears.
The bout is at the Barclays Center from Brooklyn and will be broadcast live on SHOWTIME.
“It really is an extra motivation the birth of my daughter. I feel that I am on top of the world at the moment. We have been preparing for the arrival of my daughter and I am very happy that she is here, so she can see Dad fight.”
This will be Jermall’s second defense of his title, seeking a knockout after winning consecutive unanimous decisions that broke his knockout streak in five of his last six fights.
Charlo will face a fighter who has fought around the world, from the superwelter weight to the light heavyweight divisions. He lost a controversial decision against Mexican Jaime Munguia, in April.
Tickets for the live event, promoted by Lions Only Promotions and TGB Promotions, are now on sale and can be purchased at ticketmaster.com and barclayscenter.com. Tickets can also be purchased at the American Express box office at Barclays Center.
