STAFFORD – The most successful boxing duo in the city is just getting started.
Jermell and Jermall Charlo have a combined record of 32-0. Jermall is scheduled to fight this weekend in San Antonio while his twin brother will get into the ring in June.
They were born in Houston a minute apart, went to Hastings High School and they’re trainer is former featherweight Ronnie Shields.
Their story is one of family first...boxing...not far behind.
"My father used to spend $500 a piece, a month, just train," says Jermell. "We would have gym dues, we would have to travel so he did a lot for us."
"Boxing is part of our lifestyle," says their father Kevin Charlo. "Jermall and Jermell are just born to do this."
"If I look at him I know, if he can do it, I can do it," says Jermall. "We just keep each other motivated."
