WBC super-welterweight world champion Jermell Charlo sent out a warning to the rest of the world with this brutal KO.

Going into the fight there was a lot of heated words exchanged in the press between Charlo and his latest opponent Charles Hatley – but it was Charlo who had the last laugh.

Twin brother of fellow world champion Jermall Charlo, Jermell showed his ruthless streak this weekend to close the show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

It was a bit of a mismatch in the end as Charlo hunted Hatley down around the ring, who despite his best efforts to get away, could not avoid the power of Charlo.

It was the right hand that proved key for Charlo on the night but it was set up well with the jab before connecting on Hatley numerous times.

The end came in the 6th round, brutally, as Charlo followed up a series of right hands with one almighty straight right hand that knocked Hatley out cold.

There was some concern in the crowd briefly until Hatley regained his balance and eventually got back to his feet after the knockout.
