The 28-year-old puncher had Korobov in a lot of trouble in the final round. The contest appeared to be a close battle, but the judges saw it very wide with scored score of 119-108, 116-112 and 116-112 in Charlo’s favour.

Jermall had already said he wanted to face WBA (regular) super middleweight champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, who also owns the WBA/WBC titles at middleweight.

Earlier, Jermall’s identical twin brother Jermell was stunningly handed his first loss by Tony Harrison.

In a fight that many felt Jermell had handily won, the arena was stunned when Harrison was announced as the winner.

Harrison was awarded a 116-112, 115-113 and 115-113 win and the WBC light-middleweight title, handing Jermell (31-1) his first defeat.
