Charlo vs Benavidez Jr HIGHLIGHTS: November 25, 2023 | PBC on Showtime PPV

In the co-main event, Jermall Charlo returned to the ring for the first time in 29 months with a spirited, workmanlike and ultimately dominant performance against a very game and durable José Benavídez Jr., the older brother of David Benavídez in their 10-round non-title bout contracted at 163 pounds. Charlo, who holds the WBC middleweight title, was the much larger man, and he pushed Benavídez around the ring with his pole-like jab and hard right hands. It all added up to a wide decision for Charlo by scores of 100-90, 99-91 and 98-92 as Charlo remained undefeated at 33-0 with 22 KOs, while Benavídez dropped to 28-3-1 with 19 KOs. Charlo weighed in at 166.4 pounds at Friday’s weigh-in, compared to Benavídez at 161.2 pounds, but the fight was allowed to continue after both camps agreed. Charlo landed 116 of 334 total jabs for a 35% connect-rate and landed 127 of 279 power punches for a 46% clip.

“I’ll be back stronger, just know that,” Charlo said. “I thought about everything that I’ve been through every round. God’s got me. I want to thank everybody who never left my side. I want to thank Al Haymon for understanding me. I know when you’re a man it’s hard to explain to somebody what you stand for, but I’m happy that I went through what I went through because I showed myself that anything can be done.”

Benavídez, who was stopped by Terence Crawford in the 12th round for a welterweight title in 2018 and was an amateur prodigy, performed well against the larger foe, displaying a granite chin. But after a rusty first round, Charlo took control, exhibiting the skills that have made him one of the most entertaining and skilled fighters in the sport.

“He’s a good fighter, I’m not going to make any excuses,” Benavídez said. “I came to fight. He said he was going to back me up and I didn’t back up. I kept coming forward. The best man won tonight. It’s boxing. I thought it was way closer than the judges said it was. At the end of the day, I lost, and I’m not going to make any excuses. I don’t know if his extra weight had anything to do with it. Maybe. Maybe not. I came prepared. I gave my best.”

Charlo hurt Benavídez with a straight right hand toward the end of the first round after Charlo started slowly, the result of his long layoff. Charlo landed a sharp right uppercut midway through the second. Benavídez briefly hurt Charlo to start the third with a jab-right hand combination, but Charlo responded with an overhand right that snapped Benavídez’s head back with a minute left in the frame, and Charlo unloaded on Benavídez in the fourth as Benavídez covered up under Charlo’s heavy jabs and lefts. Charlo snapped Benavídez’s head back with a right uppercut with 40 seconds left in the sixth, and Charlo hurt Benavídez in the 10th round with a snappy right, as the two exchanged words and eventually buried the bad blood between them when the fight was over and embraced.

    It was a good comeback fight for Charlo and Jose always comes to trade. Good scrap

  2. JJ Syphor says:

    honestly Jermall looked damn impressive in his return.
    People think he just stopped fighting but nahhhh he stopped boxing and training all together, he wasn’t in a good mental place before.
    His combos were insane, he had great slips and defensive instincts (not all the time but 90% of the time he was slipping and countering so clean), his power shots were beautiful, a little rusty, a little too chill, dude didn’t really fight with urgency but all things considered it was a great comeback fight against a very game Jose.

    Another 2-3 warm ups against some good legit top 8 and he should be back in peak form.

    • Jose Cruz says:

      Another 2-3? How old do you think he is? Lol

    • SHADOWGHOST says:

      Jermall came in with at least a 10-15 pound advantage Jose last fight was at 154 and made the contracted weight (163) at 161 pounds and was already hydrated meanwhile Jermal came in at 166.6 and probably rehydrated to almost 180 pounds. Jose a blown up 147 pounder with 1 leg 🦵 😂😂😂

    • English Guy says:

      Not impressed that Charlo didn’t bother to make weight and basically just beat up Bud Crawfords 140 leftovers. This is pathetic, let him fight someone his own size, better yet let him fight David Benavidez and get knocked out 😂

  3. IccyTheOne says:

    Jermall’s defense is underrated in my opinion. His slips and rolls on the inside are always impressive. Along with his changing guard depending the range from his opponent. I hope he fights Adames or Janibek soon.

    • James Jackson says:

      Bruh do you not see him getting tf beat out his face 😂. What fight you watching

    • mayorshelbourne says:

      @James Jacksonwhat fight were YOU watching😂 Charlo didn’t even look like he had a fight afterwards

    • stackit&invest says:

      @James Jacksonyeah no , charlo was getting hit clearly! he wasn’t slipping shit . he was slipping but not keeping his eye on Jose

    • Raine_Dancer says:

      I doubt he’ll fight either, he looked way drained and couldn’t even make the 163 catch weight. Don’t worry tho, he’ll prolly move up to 168, smoke Plant, then beat the breaks off Benavidez or Morrell

    • 94sFinest says:

      This isn’t even Mall at his best. 2.5 year layoff and still dealing with mental health issues due to him & his wife (ex?) going through a nasty divorce/custody battle.

  4. Butch _Luffy says:

    Whatever people say about his performance in this fight, i commend charlo for simply stepping into the ring despite his mental issues, very few people on this earth especially the people critizing him would have the strength to even do that, let alone win

  5. rockymntdan1 says:

    I was there. Best fight of the night. Charlo’s jab is impressive.

  6. Leka says:

    Charlo was so precise. Landing shots after shots!😮

  7. Derek Wilson says:

    Charlo is naturally a bigger man & it showed not just in size, but power. Benavidez’s head would snap back everytime Charlo landed. When Benavidez would successfully land Charlo never seemed in danger.

    • Ray Romano says:

      You obviously forgot he cheated and didn’t make weight. That weight difference is huge when you’re already cut

    • Grw Up says:

      ​@Ray Romanothat lil 3lbs over weight shit don’t mean nuthn in a fight 👊 if anything it should be a concern to charlo not benevidez because it could make charlo fatigue faster, extra weight don’t mean extra strength.. charlo put on an impressive display and won.

    • Mauri says:

      He was 3 pounds overweight after they agreed for the fight to be 3 pounds over the Weight limit

    • No incomprehensible says:

      @Grw Upit’s a boxing match bro

  8. Sono fabitch says:

    It must have been a bitter pill for Benavidez Jr. He wanted to scream to the world that Charlo beat him because he’s bigger and heavier. But his brother David beats everybody because he’s bigger and heavier, so there’s really nothing Jose can complain….

    • HATEONIT says:

      Yes he can because him and his brother are different people. And CHARLO cheated this is a sport people can die that’s why there is weight classes. Dam shame CHARLO THE CHEATER

    • frolouxio says:

      benavidez makes weight though. but in curious to know what they both rehydrate to because benavidez for sure rehydrates to like 175 and charlo to maybe 168-170

    • Marie Arnold says:

      Exactly 💯💯💯💯 Not Only That He Spars With David So He Definitely Was just Out Boxed.

    • mykedynomite says:

      ​@user-oz7pg3pv2f bro I don’t understand why people are so proud about charlo in this fight not only did he refuse to put up his belt but he required a catch weight he didn’t even meet. Unprofessional and he should be ashamed of himself.

    • HATEONIT says:

      @mykedynomite 👍 yup facts . He is a great fighter but that was unprofessional. There’s rules in boxing especially elite level where he is and the belt thing too

  9. Monte Capone says:

    For being out the ring for almost three years this performance was crazy

  10. JSmooth says:

    I’m not gone lie these highlights is deceiving because if you actually watched the fight it was pure dominance from Charlo start to finish. The highlights was chopped just right to make it seem like Jose wasn’t getting his ass whooped that bad. That shit was target practice for charlo!!!
