ALMOST exactly a year to the day since Jermell Charlo lost his WBC super-welterweight title to Tony Harrison on an upset unanimous decision in Brooklyn, the Texan regained the belt via KO in an edge-of-your-seat grudge rematch in Ontario, California.

In the first bout, Harrison had used lateral movement to stifle Charlo, but the Detroit native switched up his approach in the return by being more attack-minded and boxing on the front foot.

Despite being floored by a left hook followed by a glancing right as early as the second session, Harrison seemed to be in the ascendancy going into the championship rounds, with his jab and body work proving particularly effective.
