Former world champion Tony Harrison was on top of the world when he defeated Jermell Charlo by unanimous decision last December in Brooklyn to capture Charlo’s WBC 154-pound belt.
However, Harrison’s reign did not last long, as he was stopped in the 11th round by Charlo in the rematch. While Harrison would love to fight him for a third time, Charlo stated after the fight that he would like to unify, which will probably be against Julian Williams, who fights in Philadelphia on January 18 against Jeison Rosario.
With Charlo looking to unify, Harrison may not get a shot at him anytime soon, which means he has to look elsewhere.
According to Harrison, if he can’t get a third fight with Charlo, he would love to fight Kell Brook.
“I would love to go overseas and fight a guy like Kell Brook, so I just want to chase legacy,” Harrison recently told the Go4it podcast. “I want the fans to keep enjoying good Detroit boxing and visually bring good boxing back to Detroit.”
If he can’t Brook, Harrison would want Spence.
“Everybody as far as money, I would love for a guy like Errol Spence to move up to 154 and fight somebody like him,” Harrison said.
Getting those two fights might be a long shot for Harrison, but in boxing, anything is possible.
