Charlo vs Castano 2 fight card
Get Charlo vs Castano 2 full fight card below and stay tuned for results.
When Derrick James, the highly acclaimed trainer of unified junior middleweight champion Jermall Charlo, looks backs on his fighter's exciting -- yet equally disputed -- split draw against WBO champion Brian Castano last summer, one key stretch in particular comes to mind as it pertains to Saturday's rematch.
After a disputed delay due to Brian Castano's bicep tear, the rematch with Jermell Charlo will go ahead tonight near Los Angeles.
The two super welterweights fought in July of last year with all four belts up for grabs, but the fight was scored a draw.
That set up a replay but it was put back following Castano's injury, which his opponent called into question. However, the pair will now fight tonight.
Here's everything you need to know about Charlo vs. Castano 2.
Castano (17-0-2, 12 KOs) outlanded his opponent and connected on a higher percentage of punches in their 154-pound undisputed championship bout in San Antonio but was forced to withstand the storm of a Charlo (34-1-1, 18 KOs) rally in the championship rounds.
In the end, one judge scored it 114-114, while the other two scored it 117-111 for Charlo and 114-113 for Castano, in a fight many observers felt the native of Argentina had done enough to win.
"This is the funny thing about it, Brian Castano was who I thought he was going to be. But he was only able to be that guy because of Jermell Charlo," James told "Morning Kombat" in April. It wasn't about how great [Castano] was or wasn't, it was about the fight that Jermell Charlo posed to him and gave him. When you look at the last four rounds, [Castano] was on the run because Charlo was on the hunt.
"If we start out like that, you may not see the last four rounds or may not see the full 12 rounds. We have to start out the fight different and be a different individual. Castano is who he is. He's a pressure fighter and if you let a guy be himself, you can't beat him."
The 31-year-old Charlo has already predicted the rematch, which takes place this weekend at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California (Showtime, 9 p.m. ET), will end in him knocking Castano out.
