Yorgey ready for Charlo showdown

Jr. Middleweight “Lightning” Harry Joe Yorgey (25-1-1, 12 KOs) is looking forward to his Showtime televised ten round encounter with undefeated Jermell Charlo (19-0, 9 KOs) that will take place on January 26th at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. “We were offered the fight and we didn’t know much on Charlo”, said Yorgey. “I know he is a very sound fighter but he hasn’t fought any big names but we know he can fight.”

Yorgey has won three in a row since his lone pro defeat to Alfredo Angulo and he feels that he may have taken lightly by Charlo. “I know a win puts me back to where I was before the Angulo fight. I know that people are sleeping on me because of that fight and that’s fine by me because I know I have the skills and experience to win on January 26th.” Yorgey is training in Reading, Pennsylvania under Marshall Kauffman.
