WBC world champion Jermell Charlo sent out a big message with this savage punch to close the show in round one.
Twin brother of other top fighter Jermall Charlo, Jermell Charlo continued to make waves in the sport and his own name for himself this weekend with a stunning knockout over Erickson Lubin.
In the build-up to the fight Charlo had chosen to keep quiet and instead let his fists do the talking with Lublin when they met in the ring and heck, did he ever do that.
Here is the stunning moment that the fight ended with a crunching short right hook delivered:

The win saw Charlo improve his record to 30-0-15KO.
Following the fight there appeared to be a bizarre incident that took place outside the ring where it looked as though a riot was close to breaking out.
Chairs went flying and a scuffle ensued, with the champion claiming people attempted to throw a chair at his brother Jermall in his post-fight interview.
Here’a another look from a different angle of the stunning punch delivered last night:

That shuddering punch made it four stoppage wins of the trot for the champion.
The other three coming in his last fights before this weekend against Charles Hatley, John Jackson and Joachim Alcine.
