Unbeaten in the Ring, Nabbed Outside for Robbery

He is the reigning World Boxing Council’s, WBC, Middleweight champion. With 32 unbeaten runs in his professional career, 22 by KOs, he looks settled for a place in the stars, with fortunes looking his way in the same trajectory.
But on Wednesday, he was arrested and charged with robbery, over a San Frisco incident that happened in July, making his case similar the story of the pig’s love for the mud-always seeking the dirt, even after being removed from it. Welcome to the world of Jermell Charlo.
Meanwhile, the unbeaten pugilists has since been released, having posted bond on three charges of second-degree robbery.
A police report said Charlo’s credit card was declined for a large bar tab on the morning on July 16, the eve of Charlo’s brother Jermell’s world title bout in San Antonio.
Reports say a warrant accused Charlo of removing his identification and cash from his waitress’s possession before leaving.
But his lawyer, Kent Schaffer, disclosed however, that the hard hitter did not take anything belonging to anyone.
“Jermall stole no money from anyone at the club and made no threats toward anyone. At no time did he rob anyone or take any property other than his own,” Schaffer said.
Schaffer added that his client was concerned after being told his card had been lost and only retrieved his driver’s license.
Charlo has his most recent fight, the fourth defense of his 160-pound, 73kg, crown in June during which he had a unanimous point decision over Mexico’s Juan Macias Montel. He is the weight owner of the WBC, WBA and IBF titles.
