The Mail Pouch: Good Cheer & Bad Charlo’s To You

By William Trillo

I can’t think of a better way to ring in the holiday spirit than with a letter from one of our many, (3 the last time I counted), loyal readers. Our good friend Nick from Montreal chimed in with some love for Pound4Pound and then asked what we thought about the two lumps of coal in the stocking known as the Charlo brothers. Check out Nick’s letter along with our candid response:

Hi Billy,

Thank you for entertaining me during the year with your commentary, I love your point of view.

I watched the Charlo fights this weekend and was awaiting your comments on these fights; please let us know what you thoughts are.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

EOM and Regards; Nick P. Karabineris

First let me wish you and your family a Merry Christmas as well. May all of Montreal have the best New Year ever! Without a doubt your city is one of the best fight towns in North America. I look forward to visiting again in the near future.

As to the Charlo’s, I am glad you asked. In all honesty I was going to keep my thoughts to myself because I would just be labeled a hater, but since you asked…

Whether or not you think Charlo A or Charlo B won or lost the fact of the matter is they were both exposed as B level fighters at best. Outside of their big mouths I do not see anything in their repertoire that deems them worthy of performing on the big stage.

With their respective defeat and victory aside both struggled with less than World Class talent. I am sure both Canelo and GGG had a good laugh watching these two on Saturday night. Go ahead and assume the Charlo’s took a big hit when it comes to their next payday and at the present time I don’t see any way they can handle the cream of the crop, that being Alvarez and Golovkin.

I’ve been tired of these brothers’ antics both inside and outside of the ring since they made their presence known. Personally I think they are bad for boxing and I am hopeful this is the start of a downward spiral for both of them.

There are plenty of good, talented and respectable young fighters out there whom I would rather see get a shot at the top.

If I could give the Charlo’s any advice it would be; Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.

Thanks again Nick! I hope I answered your question.
