Again, we reached the historical fight night where the junior middleweight champion Jermall Charlo will face for a rematch with WBO champion Brian Castano. Boxing fans shouldn’t miss their last year’s tie match.
- Date: Saturday, May 14
- Venue: Los Angeles
- TV Channel
- Start time: 9 p.m. ET
- Main event: 10:30 p.m. or 11 p.m. ET (approximate)
- Live stream: FITEPASS
A rematch was quickly put in place but Castano suffered a right bicep tear which required a postponement, an injury which Charlo poured scorn on. However, they are now both ready to contest the four belts and The Ring Magazine title.
Castano deserves plenty of credit for everything that went right the first time around. He visibly hurt Charlo with lunging left hooks against the ropes in the early rounds and somehow managed to push an aggressive pace without taking too much punishment in return thanks to his head movement and high guard.
Who is Jermell Charlo
A Houston, Texas native, Charlo (34-1-0) has been vocal about wanting larger opportunities to match his resume. In May, he called out Canelo Alvarez during the media conference after Alvarez’s victorious bout with Billy Jo Saunders.
Charlo enters this fight on a three-fight win-streak, most recently defeating Jeison Rosario. The Rosario match yielded Charlo the WBA and IBF titles.
With 18 career victories by KO, including his last three, he’ll be a lot to handle. Should he pull off the feat on Saturday, he’ll have the legitimacy that names like Alvarez hold their standard to. Charlo is currently the top-ranked super-welterweight boxer in the world.
Who is Brian Castaño
Right behind Charlo in the rankings, and looking to take his place, is the undefeated Castaño (17-0-1). Fighting out of Argentina, Castaño has won 12 of his matches by KO, however, three of his last five fights have gone to decision.
Castaño has slowed down his fight schedule since 2015 and didn’t fight in 2020 during the pandemic. In his return to the ring this past February, he defeated Patrick Teixeira by unanimous decision. Castaño once separately held the WBA belt at 154 pounds and looks to add it among the others on Saturday to his trophy case.
