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.
