Jermell “Iron Man” Charlo (27-0, 12 KOs) and John “Dah Rock” Jackson (20-2, 15 KOs) go toe-to-toe Saturday, May 21 at The Cosmopolitan. Charlo-Jackson will be the opening bout of the triple header event; the fight is scheduled for 12 rounds and the vacant WBC Super Welterweight title is on the line.

This is the third time Charlo has fought since 2015, and he is coming off an October win over Joachim Alcine. Jackson has won five of his last six fights and is also coming off a win–beating Dennis Laurente last August.

While there is a lot on the line for both fighters on Saturday night, the thought of both Charlo brothers returning to their hometown of Houston with 154-pound world titles has given Jermell even more motivation as he prepares for Jackson.

Read on for a complete preview and prediction of Jermell Charlo vs. John Jackson and let us know who you think will win.
