Jermall Charlo were born on May 19th, 1990 to Terrie and Kevin Charlo one minute apart from twin brother Jermell Charlo in Lafayette, Louisiana. Jermall and Jermell were raised in a very different environment than most children being the sons of a professional boxer. The twins were taught early in life by their father that purpose is nothing without patience and persistence. Jermall and Jermell were able to use that mentality and advice to their advantage at a very young age as they started their careers in the amateur boxing circuit.

Jermall Charlo trains at Plex Performance gym in Houston alongside world renowned trainer Ronnie Shields and strength and conditioning coach Danny Arnold. Jermall lives a balanced family life and it is not uncommon for Jermall to be found making dinner for his family each night and then spending a quiet evening at home. Jermall ended 2016 with a perfect record of 23-0 with 18 by way of knockout and is the current reigning IBF Junior Middleweight champion of the world.
