WBO junior middleweight champion (up to 69.9 kg), Brazilian Patrick Tesheira (31-1-0, 22 KO) spoke about the opportunity to fight for the absolute championship with the owner of the remaining three belts, American Jermell Charlo (34-1-0, 18 KO ).
Tesheira believes that Charlo cannot be called the best fighter in the division until he meets him.
“Hey Charlo, you have to beat me to be considered the best,” the fighter said in an interview with BoxingScene.com. “I have a mandatory title defense right now. However, if the WBO allows me, I will happily end your career and then take on Castagno. I will close the PBC junior middleweight board. “
