The buildup so far has been a war of words for Tony Harrison and Jermell Charlo leading into Saturday’s rematch taking place in Ontario, California on Fox. The one overriding theme for these two is that have made it known they don’t care at all for one another whatsoever.
“Nothing about me is fake,” Harrison said at the Thursday’s final presser.. Everything I say, I do it. It comes from my heart. The beef between us is real when it comes to my eyes. I don’t like anything about him. The tables turned after what he did right after the first fight. I’m a humble beast and he woke me up.

Harrison will be defending the WBC Super Welterweight belt he won from Charlo last year in a contested decision last year at the Barclays Center. Harrison addressed that at the presser as well for those who think that Charlo won the fight.
“I had three judges who said I won, so I don’t think I have to change anything in my game plan. I’m happy. I don’t care about what him and his team is telling him. I don’t have to do anything different.”

“I trained in Florida because I needed to be hungry again, ” Harrison said. “I made the changes for me. I was out a year and I had to get mentally correct. He woke me up. I didn’t need to be in Detroit, they know I’m the champ. Now I’m ready to beat you again on Saturday.”
We’ll see in the much awaited rematch if Harrison’s preparation helps him retain in this blood feud.
