Jermell Charlo vs. Brian Castano 2 Fight Results, Highlights: Charlo becomes undisputed champion with vicious KO

The first fight between Jermell Charlo and Brian Castano was a thriller with an inconclusive outcome as the four belt junior middleweight unification ended in a shared tie. The pair clashed again on Saturday night, with both men keen to make a statement. The pair did just that as both delivered exciting moments in the ring before Charlo scored a knockout in round 10 to become the undisputed king of the division.

The fight started late after Castano arrived late at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California. With Jaron “Boots” Ennis handling the deal in just two turns in the co-feature, Castano needed time to wrap his hands, work up a sweat and don gloves.

If the delay in starting the fight had any effect on Charlo, he didn’t show it. Charlo immediately showed some key adjustments to the July 2021 clash with Castano, putting on a steady diet of jabs and being far less content with staying with his back to the ropes as Castano pushed forward.

Castano would eventually start to find success with his forward movement, landing good right hands to end Charlo’s jab. As Castano found more success, Charlo responded with some heavy left hook counterattacks and the action increased dramatically as both men landed brutal power shots.

As the fight moved into the second half, Charlo’s movement took over the fight again. Castano was less likely to let go of his hands with success and Charlo began clearly typing in his attempt to land a fight-changing left hook.

In round 10, that left hook finally came when Charlo landed a shot that resulted in Castano hitting the canvas on a delayed knockdown. While Castano took the count, Charlo charged forward with a fight-ending spin, finishing with an uppercut and a left hook to the body Charlo as the man to hold four world championships at 154 pounds.

When asked about the delay in starting the fight, Charlo brushed off the situation that affected him in some way.

“You know, I’m just getting in the fight,” Charlo said. “I don’t care if I’m late. I don’t care who comes early.

Charlo and Castano exchanged friendly words after the fight, with Castano saying the difference between the draw and the KO loss was simply “that he beat me”.

Now having won all four world titles at 154 pounds, Charlo suggested his future could be an attempt to move up the same weight class.

“It’s a legacy,” Charlo said. “It’s legendary. I am Legend. Thank God. I’m not done yet, dog.

There is a problem with a potential middleweight takeover, however, as Charlo’s twin brother Jermall holds the WBC world championship at 160 pounds.
