WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo has once again found himself involved in an embarrassing situation that got recorded on camera. A few days ago, he was slapped by another boxer, Caleb Plant, in the backstage area of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. This happened during the ceremonial weigh-ins for the much-anticipated fight between Terence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr.
On July 30, another video went viral where Jermall Charlo was seen pushing an old lady who was part of the security team at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. As per the visuals, the lady and another security executive were stopping the boxer from going near the boxing ring. However, Charlo pushed them both and went through anyway.

This ignited anger in boxing fans as pushing an old lady is not exactly what you expect your favorite boxer to do. A fan commented that while they were a fan of Charlo’s boxing, this was beyond tolerable. “I was recording him because I really respected what he has done in boxing and then I seen him do this to this lady …”
Another Instagram user wrote that Jermall could have shown little respect for the lady, “Jermall wack for this… that’s someone’s mom bruh”. A fan brought up his altercation with Caleb Plant and said, “This guys tough with an old lady but when caleb smacked him up he froze like elsa”.
While pushing someone anyone, especially an old lady, is obviously unacceptable, Charlo being already involved in an altercation recently did not help his case, as boxing fans were not ready to spare him for this one.

After getting hit, Charlo did not reciprocate the violence and then Plant was dragged out of there. “Don’t you ever grab me by my motherf*cking face again like that, boy,” Plant yelled on his way out.
The reason for Plant’s going so far with his actions remains unknown as of now. However, this was not the end to Jermall Charlo’s troubles, as another video got out that showcased Jermall’s wife involved in a fight with Jermell Charlo’s wife. For those who do not have an idea, Jermall and Jermell Charlo are twin brothers. While, the circumstances that led to this event are not known but, Jermall’s wife was certainly on the receiving end of some nasty blows.
