Jermell Charlo TKO7

Champion97's picture

Prediction.

Castano fought more recently, Charlo has been more active in the last few years, Charlo has the better resume, and his recent form has been great, Castano did everything but beat Lara, his form has also been great. Both fighters are offensively brilliant, are come forward fighters, neither fighter often boxes at long range or at a low tempo, neither have fast feet or good head movement, I see the fight being more in the pocket than not. Castano is the better pressure fighter, has better blocking abilities, a higher output, he is better at mid range, has faster hands, and is more accurate overall. Charlo's timing is phenomenal, I think he has slightly more variety than Castano, has a better jab, but is better at close range. I think Charlo has more lapses and technical flaws, but Castano is more reliant on being on the front foot even as the better overall technical fighter, Charlo's offence suffers when he's pushed back, but mentally he holds up very well, and is prepared to land a great counter off the back foot.

I think Charlo will back Castano up in the early rounds by knocking him back with blocked punches, will make it hard for Castano to get into a rhythm, but Castano will use his footwork well, will land the cleaner shots as he's able to throw some combinations. I think the fight will be more positive in the mid rounds, Castano will do a better job of taking centre ring, will negate Charlo's aggression, but Charlo will time Castano, land the more damaging shots, Castano will hold up well, but Charlo will knock him back and neutralise him when he lands clean. I think the last 4 or 5 rounds will be a war, Castano will land more shots, but with the fatuige aspect, Charlo will be able to time Castano off the back foot, and hurt him, I don't think he'll have it in the tank to finish him, but he'll have the better of the late rounds.

I think Charlo wins a UD, I wouldn't be surprised if Charlo got a stoppage, but I wouldn't be surprised if Castano won a decision.

I think Castano is just too small and not a complete enough fighter to hang long term here. He can pressure, but it’s straight line pressure not from angles. He also can be hurt and persuaded to go back as was the case during spots in the Michael Soro fight , and he’s much less effective going backwards. Charlo has grown a lot in his time with Jaimes, but with Sheilds he was a 1-2-3 pure boxer type off the back foot this leads to me believe that he simply has too many dimensions for the smaller more aggressive Castano. I see Castano pressuring early and throwing punches in bunches before he gets caught with something big around the fourth and eventually stopped in the 9th round.

And Castano about to get robbed in .....

I thought Castaño did enough to get the victory. A draw is reasonable I guess, but 117-111 Charlo is just absurd.
And I highly disagree with one judge (and unofficial judges) scoring the 10th round 10-8 to Charlo. Castaño didn't go down, it's not like he was out on his feet either, he threw several punches that round and landed a few, he didn't get absolutely dominated to the point of being 10-8'd. Yes, he got on his bike for a while to regroup, but no way it's a 10-8.

Champion97's picture

I think Charlo was fortunate to get a draw, 9-3 in his favour is obviously corrupt, I don't think there's even a valid case for Charlo winning, I thought Castano won fairly wide, but a draw itself is fair, there should definitely be a rematch.

Castano's blocking was very important, his timing and accuracy was good when he threw his own shots, and a lot of Charlo's shots were bouncing off Castano's guard, I think blocking is an underrated skill for a fighter to have. Castano's ring cutting was great, he was walking Charlo down throughout the fight, and had more control of the pace for that reason, the lead over hand right was very accurate, Charlo was a target for it, and whenever Charlo was static on the ropes, Castano went on the attack. Charlo landed a great counter, both times he hurt Castano, Castano couldn't have responded better after round 2, he took his time, and when Charlo was opening up on the ropes, he out punched him with the left hook, Charlo made the adjustment of being busier with his jab after that, didn't open up as much when Castano was swarming him, he did well mentally under the pressure, but it was one sided in rounds 3-9, he couldn't split the guard, Castano was out of position to be countered when he threw the lead right hand, it was an accurate shot, and Castano was very disciplined, kept applying educated pressure and walking Charlo down. It was a great shot from Charlo in round 10, Castano's survival was good, but Charlo swung the momentum in his favour in the late rounds, eased Castano's pressure, and got off at long range.

117-111 for Charlo!!!

Jarod Killian's picture

yeah, no shit man! that judge out to be commended for his genuine comedy skills! I mean like move over Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Bill Burr, cause we've got a new king of comedy!

Chris M95's picture

with Castano out of the rematch w bicep injury Charlo's long overdue IBF mando may finally get his shot

Metalhead123's picture

Unlikely. I’m hearing they’re rescheduling it for May or June

Chris M95's picture

very possible plus Mell been saying he only wants the big fights hopefully he doesnt get stripped before an Undisputed champ emerges

Chris M95's picture

@Metalhead way things are looking now Charlo Castano being postponed to June could mean Charlo can still headline the March 19th card with his IBF mando tho it still may be a quick turnaround and that could clash with potential Tank Davis return dates in June
My guy tells me With Benavidez Lemieux pushed back a few weeks with Phoenix Suns making the playoffs and a potential clash of dates for the venue that April 23rd date becomes open for the PBC and a potential 2 fight main card NOT on PPV becomes ideal for PBC as their associated network can run back the PPV from previous week (Spence Ugas) coupled with a potential Charlo Castano 2
AND EITHER Boots Ennis vs Custo Clayton or Frank Sanchez vs Chris Arreola on April 23rd, Boots Ennis stands in good stead w Showtime execs WHILE the OTHER fight could probably headline March 19th in LA and they can scale the production down Arreloa is from LA and Sanchez is based of there too provided however they can't get the camps of both Boots Ennis and Clayton to prepond their fight to March 19th and both them camps would prefer April 23rd instead
Ennis and Clayton could also be moved to PBCs April 9th card that would go h2h with Dazn & GBs Garcia vs Tagoe (headlined by Lubin vs Fundora and also feature Tony Harrison vs Segio Garcia)
plus from what I'm told RnB act New Edition performing there with Jodeci in LA on Sunday 20th March and that they were looking to package that into a deal for fans w the card sans Charlo vs Castano 2 headliner so it's unlikely that PBC would let the rest of the card,date and venue go which would be next to impossible to book and revisit once the playoffs start

none of this is official but those seem the most logical options for the PBC at this point from what I'm told Frank Sanchez vs Arreola or Ennis vs Clayton will be the leading candidates to headline this card with Charlo Castano 2 pushed back but other options will also be explored

Chris M95's picture

Tim Tszyu vs Gausha will be headlining the cards after all and previously talked about fights like Sanchez vs Arreola could very well be pushed back a month or two

Chris M95's picture

word on the street is WBC pressuring Fury into a decision and IF Tyson Fury is going on a sabbatical, the WBC allegedly would be interested in having Wilder return to fight for the vacant title vs Frank Sanchez
could explain why they been waiting to make Sanchez vs Arreola official also could explain the delay in putting out a FOX schedule like they did Showtime
Thurman could skip levels on his comeback trail and end up fighting Crawford in July or August as part of that FoX schedule

Gold's picture

Which is laughable and shows how greedy the WBC is. He just fought their mandatory, unless you know of how they could strip him by their own rules other than getting him to commit to retiring, they can only mandate him to fight one mandatory a year. Fury should just cut the retirement talk and drag the WBC out as long as possible. Not saying you are but I hope you are wrong about those fights, I was under the impression Fox cut their budget for PBC which is why a lot of good fights were going to Showtime that once went to Fox. Did they re-up their contract with Fox or do you know if Fox is willing to give them more money? Wilder vs. Sanchez would make sense on Fox because they could do it as a PPV, they've been putting some unreasonably bad PPV fights on Fox recently.

Chris M95's picture

agreed and hoping the rumors are false too or like you said Gold Fury doesn't retire and lets the WBC know he continues...personally I wouldn't like a situation where Fury can only be made "francise champion" on return and has no say in the matter and I wouldn't like a 4th fight between th 2 either...of it does happen and Wilder fights Sanchez and in an idal world fight the winner of Parker vs Joyce I'd hope Joyce can come through both matchups unsacthed...best case scenario from a fan perspective imo but I still feel Fury would handle Joyce...fight in my fanatsy mind would look what Roy Jones vs Trinidad would have look like had they fought in 2002...what other route Fury got to avoid WBC drama jump straight in with the winner of Usyk Joshua 2? Parker Joyce winner may be in line for that WBO shot also
they did re-up w Fox apparently from what I heard a couple months back waiting on confirmation tho
who you picking Charlo Castano 2 and Buatsi v Richards and why?

Gold's picture

Wilder vs. Joyce would be crazy, that would be a great fight...I think Joyce would really have to push versus Fury, it could be really bad stylistically for Joyce trying to box Fury. Who do you have for Parker vs. Joyce? I have Joyce, Parker is getting long in the tooth. I hope they can make Fury vs. the winner of Usyk vs. Joshua 2 work out, it would be great for boxing. I picked Charlo for PCOM but I'm still thinking about switching it...I think everything I said after the first fight still stands. The narrative overall that Castano was closer to his peak ability is right, but that doesn't mean Charlo will make the right adjustments, I wasn't impressed by his adjustments versus Harrison in the rematch and Castano is the more skilled boxer with a great amateur background. What do you think? I don't have a view on Buatsi vs. Richards, I've barely watched either of them. I think I picked Buatsi for PCOM? Based on him being of a higher caliber generally. What I will say is I don't think Matchroom really believes in Buatsi, they've been going slow with him.
