About: Charlo (25-0, 19 KOs) VS Heiland (29-4-2, 16 KOs)

Charlo (25-0, 19 KOs) and Heiland (29-4-2, 16 KOs) will meet in a 12-round eliminator to become the mandatory challenger for the WBC 160-pound championship. Charlo will make his middleweight debut after successfully defending his 154-pound belt three times, including a highlight reel knockout of then unbeaten Julian Williams last December on SHOWTIME.

“I’ve been training since end of January to prepare myself for the move up to middleweight,” said Charlo. “I’m feeling stronger, I’m feeling smarter and overall, I’m feeling better. Heiland is a tough fighter and I know he plans on bringing his A-game on July 29. He’s just as hungry as me. We both want to be in a place to fight the best in the division, but I never overlook the opponent in front of me. It’s been a great camp so far and I’m ready for this fight. It’s time to make my mark so I can become a two-division world champion. I plan to take care of business at 160 just like I did at 154.”

 

“I’m thrilled to be facing a great fighter like Jermall Charlo,” said Heiland. “I’ve waited a long time for a chance like this, so I will give it my all. I am fearless and I promise that this bout will be an all-out war because my career and livelihood are on the line.”

Tickets can also be purchased at the American Express Box Office at Barclays Center. Group discounts are available by calling 844-BKLYN-GP. The Charlo vs. Heiland bout is promoted in association with TGB Promotions.

 

“The Charlo vs. Heiland and Washington vs. Miller matchups are fantastic additions to night of action that is already eagerly anticipated by boxing fans,” said Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions. “Jermall Charlo is a star on the rise, but he’ll have a stiff challenge against Jorge Sebastian Heiland as he seeks a path to becoming a two-division world champion. The heavyweight matchup is a very intriguing showdown with Gerald Washington hoping to prove that he deserves another opportunity at the belt and Jarrell Miller fighting in his hometown and looking to earn his first world title shot. You’re not going to want to miss this night of fights at Barclays Center in Brooklyn and on SHOWTIME.”

 

“This is a great opportunity for SHOWTIME viewers to witness Jermall Charlo’s ascent in the middleweight division in an ordered title elimination bout,” said Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment. “Huge fights could be ahead for him.  Washington and Miller is a significant heavyweight match up. SHOWTIME viewers will see highlights of someone establishing themselves as an immediate player.  Fans at Barclays Center are in-store for a terrific tripleheader.”

 

“Jermall Charlo was a powerful force as a 154-pound world champion and everyone is curious to see if he can bring the same ferocity to the middleweight division,’’ said Tom Brown, President of TGB Promotions. “Heiland has been waiting for his chance at a middleweight world title and now he’s one step closer, but Charlo is standing in his way. This will be two fearless boxers, with something to prove and everything to gain, going at each other. The fact that it’s on the card with one of the best matchups in boxing this year – Broner versus Garcia – makes for a terrific night of boxing at Barclays Center in Brooklyn and on SHOWTIME on July 29.’’

 

The twin brother of unbeaten 154-pound champion Jermell, the Charlos became the first twins to hold world titles in the same weight class simultaneously when Jermell won his title in May 2016 while Jermall defended his belt the same night with a victory over Austin Trout. The 27-year-old will move up in weight as he seeks to become a two-division world champion after delivering a Knockout of the Year candidate against Williams in December. Fighting out of Houston and training with Ronnie Shields, Charlo won his title in 2015 by stopping Cornelius Bundrage before making his three defenses.

 

Fighting out of Buenos Aires, Argentina, Heiland enters this bout on an eight-fight winning streak including seven by knockout. The 30-year-old turned pro in 2007 with 16 straight victories before challenging for an interim title in 2010. Heiland’s current winning streak included a knockout victory in Ireland over Irish star Matthew Macklin in 2014. Heiland will be fighting in the U.S. for the second time as a professional after making his U.S. debut last September with a stoppage of Angel Hernandez.

A stacked night of undercard bouts will be highlighted by unbeaten rising Irish stars Katie Taylor and Noel Murphy in separate showdowns on Saturday, July 29 from Barclays Center, the home of BROOKLYN BOXING™.

“Katie is clearly one of the biggest stars in Irish boxing and her presence on this card further evidences the rise in women’s boxing,” said Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment. “She joins five-time, five weight division Puerto Rican world champion Amanda Serrano and US star Heather Hardy in continuing our commitment to include the best women on the best cards at Barclays Center. While Katie will appear on the international telecast, the local Irish community and US-based fans will need to join us at Barclays Center on July 29 to see her in action. Undefeated Noel Murphy, from County Cork, Ireland, further bolsters this card for fans of Irish boxing while Australian former world champion Billy Dib and young local talent, such as Bronx heavyweight George Arias and former Golden Gloves champions Kenny Robles and Richardson Hitchins round out the card.”

“I’m so pleased to see Katie make her American debut on such an outstanding card,” said Eddie Hearn, Group Managing Director for Matchroom Sport. “I believe Katie is the most entertaining and dangerous fighter in women’s boxing and has already lit up many venues in her professional journey, most recently Wembley Stadium on the Joshua v Klitschko card in front of 90,000. She is one of the biggest stars in Ireland and we are expecting fantastic support from the Irish community on the east coast for her first US experience.”

A rising star overseas, Bray, Ireland’s Taylor will make her U.S. debut on July 29 and conduct her training camp in Vernon, Connecticut after five pro fights in the United Kingdom dating back to her pro debut last November. Taylor has already picked up three victories in 2017, including her most recent triumph over previously unbeaten Nina Meinke in April. Taylor seeks a professional world title after a sensational amateur career that saw her twice represent her country in the Olympics, including a gold medal-winning performance in 2012, in addition to five gold medals in the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships.

Originally from Cork, Ireland, Murphy returned to his home country to fight as a professional for the first time in February when he won an eight-round decision over Avelino Vazquez. The 22-year-old fights out of Woodlawn, NY and will look to pick up his fourth victory this year after most recently earning a decision over Brian Jones in May. Murphy seeks his third professional win at Barclays Center and second this year after beating Maxito Sainvil in January.

More from Katie:

“I’m really excited about fighting in Brooklyn,” said Taylor, who faces Jasmine Clarkson over eight rounds at the Barclays Center. “New York has been very good to Irish fighters in the past and hopefully I can give people something to shout about.

“I feel like I’m still improving and still learning every day in the gym but I definitely feel ready for a world title fight now. Hopefully I can get another good win next weekend and win a world title later in the year before coming back to New York again at some point as a world Champion to defend my title.

“After my fight at Wembley I took a couple of weeks off back home but then it was back to Connecticut to start training camp for this fight. I’ve probably spent 90 per cent of my time here in the US since turning pro so of course it’s tough being away from family and friends but if you want to do great things you have to make great sacrifices.”

INSTANT BREAKDOWN: MAIN EVENT MILES VS REYEZ KICKDOWN 129

BY EVAN HERTZOG

MAIN EVENT: JOE MILES (4-3) VS ISAIAH REYEZ (0-1) PRO 170LBS

RD#1: Our main event is upon us and it starts with Reyez throwing multiple leg kicks but Miles closes distance fast pushing Reyez to the cage and eventually working a single leg. Miles is in the half guard and is raining down punches to the body of Reyez and he is looking to finish him with ground and pound to the body which would be a first for me. Reyez survives the first onslaught but is really taking damage now in the second flurry from Miles as he smothers him and eventually gets the mount where he lands twenty punches unanswered forcing referee Johnson to call the fight with a minute left in the first round.

BOUT#9: ANTHONY WERNER (DEBUT) VS JAMES REED (11-13) PRO 145LBS

RD#1: The co main event of the evening is our first professional bout of the evening with Anthony Werner making his debut against veteran James Reed. Reed comes out early with a low kick and a superman punch off the cage. This pushes Werner back and he lands a big kick across the midsection of Werner and then finishes with a takedown. Reed works ground and pound from inside the guard of Werner but gets too high in the guard and almost gets caught in an armbar. The sly vet in Reed won’t have it though as he slides out of it and takes the back of Werner and sinks the rear naked choke in simultaneously. Moments later Werner is forced to tap out to the choke.

INSTANT BREAKDOWN: SAGE VS CHATHAM SUPER HW AM. TITLE KICKDOWN 129

BY EVAN HERTZOG

BOUT#8: JAKE CHATHAM (4-1) VS JAKE SAGE (DEBUT) AM. SUPER HW TITLE FIGHT

RD#1: Our only heavyweight fight of the evening is in the super heavy weight category. These are two big guys and they start throwing hard early and often. Chatham lands a big straight that sends Sage to the canvas early but he recovers and gets back to his feet. Chatham is controlling the fight as he clinches Sage against the cage and works the body repeatedly. Short knees are now landing for Chatham but Sage finally separates. Sage lands a jab and moves Chatham to the cage for the first time in the fight so far but it is too little too late as the ten second clacker sounds for the end of the first round.

RD#2: Sage starts the second with a nice lower leg kick but Chatham closes the distance and forces Sage to the cage once again. The knees are coming earlier now from Chatham but Sage gets separation and lands a flurry of punches as Chatham continues to move forward for the clinch with his head down.  They decide to trade and Sage lands a couple nice shots and a big knee. Sage lands a big uppercut to end the round that opens a cut over the left eyebrow of Chatham.

RD#3: Our final round starts and they stand in the middle trading jabs. Sage seems to be the fresher fighter at this point but Chatham has a lot of power still late in the fight but has given up on the grappling for the time being. Sage now throws a left and closes the distance but this is in Chatham’s favor as he has proven to be the better grappler and forces the reversal on Sage. Sage gets separation and lands three more shots before being tied up along the fence again. Chatham seems to be comfortable with the fight riding out in grappling position but they separate for the final ten seconds and throw hands until they end up against the cage during the final bell. Tough fight to judge.

INSTANT BREAKDOWN: BELTRAN VS HERERRA KICKDOWN 129

BY EVAN HERTZOG

BOUT#6: FRANCISCO BELTRAN (0-3) VS OSCAR HERERRA (3-2) AM. 125LBS

RD#1: Beltran is the traveling fighter in this one as he resides in Torrington Wyoming. Fighters touch gloves and look to trade early. Beltran lands first and forces Hererra into a takedown where Beltran reverses his position instantly. Both fighters engage in a near stalemate north south position. Beltran sweeps and moves to side control but only for a moment as Hererra shoots back to his feet. Beltran once again pressures Hererra against the cage and lands a nice combination. Hererra gets another takedown but it seems to be out of desperation. Hererra gets to the back of Beltran for a moment but Beltran makes his way out the back door as the first round comes to an end.

RD#2: Hererra throws a low kick early but Beltran checks it. Moments later a Beltran kick lands low on Hererra and the action is stopped for a minute while a warning to Beltran is given for the blow. Both fighters touch gloves in a sign of respect as the action picks back up. Beltran lands a high kick across the face of the bending Hererra that sends both fighters into a scramble. Beltran lands good shots from the top but Hererra hits a switch and reverses the position. This too only lasts a moment as Beltran works his way into the guard of Hererra. Beltran has an arm bar opportunity but loses it in the final ten seconds of the round.

RD#3: The third starts with both fighters embracing for a hug. That lasts one second. They separate and start to throw. Hererra lands his best shot in a swooping right hand that shows some power in it still for being the final round of a grueling fight. Hererra lands the takedown and takes the mount but only for a short time as Beltran reverses him and ends up in the guard of Hererra once again. Hererra reverses now and lands his best ground and pound of the fight so far inside the guard of Beltran. The fight ends with hammer fists landing from Hererra on top. Good fight. We wait for the scorecards to be read.
