Charlo rose to fame when he worked his way up to a title shot against Cornelius Bundrage and knocked him out in the third round to become a world champion. Since then, the American champion has had one big PPV event after another.

It started with his fight with Austin Trout in 2016, where he earned a reported $500,000 without PPV. Similar paydays followed against the likes of Julian Williams, Hugo Centeno Jr., and Matt Korobov. This went up to $700,000 without PPV when he fought Brandon Adams and Dennis Hogan.
