Jr. Middleweight contender, “Lightning” Harry Joe Yorgey is looking forward to his Showtime televised ten round encounter with undefeated Jermell Charlo that will take place on January 26that the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Yorgey (25-1-1, 12 Knockouts) of Bridgeport, PA knows that this is a great opportunity get himself back in the title picture with a win and knows that Charlo is a quality fighter behind his record that reads 19-0 with 9 knockouts.

“We were offered the fight and we didn’t know much on Charlo”, said Yorgey.

“I know he is a very sound fighter but he hasn’t fought any big names but we know he can fight”

Yorgey knows that this fight has the potential to steal the show that is headlined by Lucas Matthysse battling Mike Dallas Jr.

“I really feel that this is a great fight for boxing, the fans and will see a television friendly fight. When I found out this would be on Showtime I knew it would be a great opportunity so I jumped at it.”

Yorgey has won three in a row since his lone pro defeat to Alfredo Angulo and he feels that he may have taken lightly by Charlo

“I know a win puts me back to where I was before the Angulo fight. I know that people are sleeping on me because of that fight and that’s fine by me because I know I have the skills and experience to win on January 26th

“That great thing about this game is that everything can change with one punch and I plan on putting myself right back in the title picture on January 26th

Yorgey is training in Reading, Pennsylvania under Marshall Kauffman and veteran trainer believes that Yorgey is ready and deserving of this high profile fight

“Harry deserves this opportunity to show what he is made of. He is getting great work in the gym and he will be in prime shape on January 26th

Yorgey’s promoter Arthur Pelullo of Banner Promotions agrees and sees a breakthrough performance from  Yorgey

“Harry had one bad night and people will be underestimating him but we are excited that Harry will put on a great performance and earn himself another big fight when he defeats Charlo”, said Pelullo
