Premier Boxing Champions has finalized a doubleheader for December 22nd at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The doubleheader, which is going to be televised on FOX, will feature WBC interim-middleweight champion Jermall Charlo taking on Willie Monroe Jr., while twin brother and WBC junior middleweight world champion Jermell Charlo will face Tony Harrison.

There will be a press conference held on Thursday, at Barclays, to officially announce the card – and the Charlo twins will flip a coin at the press conference to decide which of them will be featured as the “main event” of the card.

Jermell Charlo (31-0, 15 KOs) retained his title back in June, with a twelve round decision over former world champion Austin Trout, who went down twice in the contest at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Harrison (27-2, 21 KOs), who is a solid boxer and has some pop, has won three fights in a row since suffering a ninth round knockout at the hands of current unified champion Jarrett Hurd in February 2017.

Harrison saw action in May, when he picked up a ten round decision over Ishe Smith.

Jermall Charlo (27-0, 21 KOs) was in action in April, with crushing second round knockout of Hugo Centeno, at Barclays.

Monroe (23-3, 6 KOs) is taking part in his third fight of the year. He’s won two in a row since suffering a twelve round decision loss to then WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders in September of 2017.

The doubleheader event is the first bout of the recent multi-year content deal that Premier Boxing Champions finalized with FOX.
