The extremely anticipated rematch has been some seven months within the making. This after Castano pushed Jermell Charlo to a 12 spherical attract San Antonio, TX, final July in a battle that many believed he really received.
As we wrote in July, the fight was close, but marred by one un-defendable scorecard that had Charlo profitable a phantom 9 of the 12 rounds. This, when Castano, now 17-0-2, clearly pressed the motion early, scored the extra vital punches and Charlo, now 34-1-1, selected to hold on the ropes getting outfought via the primary 9 rounds.
Within the tenth the tide turned and Charlo had his finest spherical of the entire battle. He repeatedly rocked Castano with straight proper arms and lefts to the physique. Nonetheless, he couldn’t put Castano on the canvas. Then, the battle went to the ultimate bell and the unfulfilling split-draw was introduced.
It’s unclear what Premier Boxing Champions and Showtime, who received the bid to have the PPV, will do with the date and with Charlo. Nonetheless, one clear choice is to have Charlo battle widespread, unbeaten Australian contender Tim Tszyu.
Tszyu, is the 27 12 months previous son of Corridor of Famer Kosta Tszyu, has been on the “fast-track” to a world title shot by wiping out competitors in Australia during the last two years. The latest of these got here in November, when he defeated Japan’s Takeshi Inoue in a convincing 12 spherical efficiency held in Tszyu’s hometown of Sydney.
Tszyu, 20-0 and ranked #1 by the WBO, is already scheduled to make his U.S. debut to battle former U.S. Olympian and Jr. Middleweight veteran, Terrell Gausha on the undercard in March.
After all, it will likely be as much as Charlo on whether or not he would wish to take the battle with Tszyu or maybe, go for one more opponent of his and PBC’s selecting. Nonetheless, Showtime would have a say-so in whom that opponent is, as effectively and whether or not the battle would stay a PPV or not?
Boxingscene.com went on to report on Wednesday evening that Charlo and PBC might wait till late April to reschedule the Castano bout. Then, once more, they might not.
