The 28-year-old brothers flipped a coin to see who’d get the last fight of the showcase in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Jermall won.
“It’s a dream come true,” Jermell (31-0) said, according to ESPN. “We finally getting exposure. The fans are able to see us, seeing what life is like for the Charlos. People that don’t really know us or understand why we do this. Now they got a real reason to see it. It almost feels like a collaboration with the NFL and being on Fox. I’ve seen the commercials. My son has seen commercials and he’ll call me.
“It’s time. I’ve been a professional for 11 years, been boxing for 20 years and now the world is finally getting a chance to see us, and on Saturday night it’s my job to go in there and handle my business.”
Jermall (28-0) added: “This is bigger than pay-per-view. Me and my brother are both hungry. We want the fans and everyone to know that we’re the best in the world. Sooner or later the rest of the world will know it.”
Jermall’s original opponent, Willie Monroe Jr., tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone earlier this week and was subsequently dropped from the bout.
“Once I heard about the new opponent, I knew that we had work to do,” Jermall said, per ESPN. “Nothing I can do about someone [Monroe] who was unprofessional. I didn’t put my head down. I knew that we’d make another fight. I’m glad that Korobov stepped up to the plate. I think it’s going to be a great fight.
“Every fight is tough. I’m not sleeping on this guy. I’m sleeping this guy. There’s no disappointment. Korobov is a different kind of fighter than Willie Monroe, but I am prepared to fight against any style.”
Korobov (28-1) had been preparing for an undercard bout before his elevation to the main card.
“It was a surprise to get the call for this fight,” Korobov said, per ESPN. “I have to be the best version of myself on Saturday night. I’m going to take all of my amateur and pro experience and mix it up to make a great performance. I respect that Jermall Charlo took this fight, and I’m going to try to show my best. I have watched Jermall’s fights, and because he has a title, I know he has a lot of quality skills. I have the skills to make this a great night for myself. I am going to bring everything I’ve got. I spent some time outside of the ring, but the whole time I was preparing for a moment like this and I’m going to make it count.
“This was such a big opportunity that I was immediately telling my team yes [when it was offered]. This is what all my work has been leading to.”
Harrison (27-2), Jermell’s opponent, lost an IBF light middleweight title fight to Jarrett Hurd in February 2017. He’s won all three matches since.
“I hope Tony Harrison is at his best,” Jermell said, per the New York Post. “There are certain things that he does well and we just need to make adjustments when we get in there. If he wants to box, we can box and if he wants to bang we can be the aggressor.”
