R1- Both are feeling out with the jab and occasional rear hand shot. A pair of left hooks land for Charlo late in the round, stealing the round for him.

R2- Nothing is really coming from Charlo, and this slow pace definitely favors Trout. While Trout isn’t doing anything extravagant, he does land a few left hands and right hooks. Some major booing errupts from the crowd throughout.

R3- Just as the round is looking about even due to low inactivity, Charlo hurts Trout with a right hand. Charlo swarms immediately, getting Trout off balance with a right hook and landing a pair of lefts as he goes down. Trout is fine when he rises, but he takes one more big right before the round ends.

R4- Following a lull in the action from both men, Charlo hurts Trout again with a right hand. Trout ties up successfully, but eats another right on the way out of the clinch. Charlo is swinging for the fences, but Trout is resorting to clinching.

R5- Charlo catches Trout with a couple more rights at the start, as he is finding a home for this shot. Trout is clearly wary of his power, as he is setting himself up far away, circling, clinching, and hardly throwing. Whenever Charlo leads, he is able to have success, but these moments are coming too passively for reasons unknown. More boos follow the sound of the bell.

R6- Charlo continues to potshot in the first minute, but Trout gets some 1-2-3’s going. While their feet get tangled, Trout lands a left that makes Charlo spit due to a balance issue. Charlo smiles it off. Immediately after, Trout lands another nice left hand. The fight has started to liven a bit at this point, and Trout has put himself back in the fight as well.

R7- Some infighting opens things up, and Trout edges it by landing a right hook on the way out. Trout catches Charlo coming in with a 3-2, and later a left uppercut. In the final two thirds of the round, he utilizes his jab to some success. Perhaps the best round of the fight for the challenger.

R8- Both are pretty much taking turns potshotting at this point. It’s the right hands of Charlo vs the jabs of Trout. I edge Charlo due to his lead rights being a bit more eye-catching.

R9- A shot that accidentally lands behind the head drops Trout to a knee right away. I can’t be mad at Reiss for this call due to his placing when the shot landed. On top of that, Trout gets up and tries to stay away or clinch for a while, making Charlo’s follow up rights seem crucial when they land. A right hookercut hurts Trout late in the round, but he stays composed. Another big round for the champ.

R10- Charlo picks up the pace early and connects with solid uppercuts and left hooks. A moment occurs where Charlo lands a left hook on an off balance Trout that puts his head outside the ropes. Charlo lands a solid 1-2 soon after, only to buckle him with a harder one moments after this. Another good round for Jermell.

R11- The right hook of Trout doesn’t have much behind it, but he is touching Charlo. Charlo on the other hand is still able to pinpoint some rights on Trout’s head with the help of a flicker jab. While Charlo is landing with more power, trout seems to do a bit more.

R12- After fighting as if he were looking for a stoppage in the first minute or so, Charlo steps off the gas, and it becomes another battle of turns. Trout is doing a pretty decent job at countering, but Charlo is landing the more eye-catching shots, and honestly gets in enough clean rights to the head to win it. A dissapointing fight, and Trout clearly had lost some steps since he fought Jermell’s brother, which was a much more entertaining and impressive bout than this. Jermell did not impress me tonight either, but at least he won a clear, comfortable decision. I feel that some peope exaggerate the closeness of this fight, which is obviously due to it being fought at Charlo’s pace. Regardless, Charlo adds another good name to his stellar resume, regardless if the asteriks regarding Trout’s age or being past his prime are there. I wish Trout would have retired after this, but at least he isn’t facing risky competition. As for Charlo, a controversial setback would await.
