R1- Castaño is pressuring and Charlo is moving laterally on the ropes. Neither is having major success with the jab, but Castaño is not hesitant to let combinations fly. Charlo uses some good defense and reflexes to block and fire back, but Castaño is beating him to the punch and doing overall solid work with the right hand, while catching him on the way out with the left hook.

R2- Charlo is busier with his jab and right, but is guided to the ropes early. As Castaño lets go of a flurry, Charlo keeps a stiff guard and moves his head to block pretty much all of it, only to catch Castaño in between with a sharp left hook counter. This hurts Castaño and gets him going backwards. Charlo pounces on him, letting power shots from both hands fly to the head, but Castaño is able to create some distance and recover eventually. Good round for Charlo.

R3- The jab of Charlo is landing in the first half, but Castaño tightens his guard and walks through it. Castaño traps Charlo on the ropes late, landing a looping right and left hook around his guard. Charlo tries to catch him in between again, just to get rocked by a left hook. Soon after, Castaño beats him to the punch and lands another left hook, buckling him worse than anybody has prior. I honestly wonder if Charlo may have touched down without the ropes being there. Good way to get revenge in Castaño’s case.

R4- Walking Charlo down with his high guard, Castaño starts to potshot rights to the head and body, while making Charlo’s blows whizz over his head or land on the gloves. The left hook is piercing Charlo’s guard every time up close, plus the body work and uppercuts are guiding Castaño to victory in every exchange.

R5- Charlo starts to stick and move with the jab, not letting Castaño get into his range of choice. When Castaño finally gets in close, a flurry of his is block by Charlo’s guard and upper body movement. Charlo comes back to land a few ones and twos through Castaño’s guard before impressively bobbing and weaving through another flurry from Castaño at the end.

R6- After eating a 1-2 through the guard, Castaño ups his pressure and starts to land straight rights through the guard or simply over his left hook. What Castaño is doing is very suble, yet effective. Castaño is also having an easier time finding Charlo when he moves his head now, landing a left hook and looping right hand at different times late in the round.

R7- The right hand over the top from Castaño is getting there often. On top of that, the left hook to the body and head are very accurate, and even landing in succession at least once. The underrated defense of Castaño prevents him from being touched too much in the round. Late, Castaño starts to push and trap Charlo on the ropes before picking short combinations and even counter punches off.

R8- Castaño is hooking with Charlo during these exchanges, but it is indeed his left that is getting there first. The chopping right is landing almost at will for Castaño, who is continuing to overwhelm Charlo with his pressure and volume at this point. Charlo is busier late, but still can’t rupture Castaño’s guard.

R9- Charlo is busy with the jab, and is able to pierce the guard of Castaño with it a solid amount of times. It takes a while for Castaño to come on, surprisingly, but he lands some chopping rights and body blows when he does. This is the closest round of the fight, but the most underrated aspect of scoring does it for Charlo- effective defense. He is catching a lot of Castaño’s power shots by moving his gloves up just in time, and he manages to evade most of a machine gun-style flurry by Castaño. Despite being outgunned and overwhelmed for most of the fight, the next round is where Charlo would finally cement himself.

R10- Upon being told he is losing the fight, Charlo comes out with serious intent, staying busy with the jab and setting up some straight rights. Similar to the second round, Charlo wobbles Castaño with a counter left hook, instantly putting him on retreat mode. Charlo chases him without being reckless, buckling him quickly with a right hand-left hook combination. Castaño is able to use the ring pretty well, but gets rocked twice more by rights to the head. Not quite a 10-8 round, but this was the most dominant round of the fight and clearly the most danger that Castaño had been in his career at this point.

R11- Sensing Castaño is still hurt, Charlo lands a few big rights early and a double left hook to the body and head. Charlo seems to let Castaño off the hook early, allowing Castaño to land some jabs and rights. Ironically, a round this late is where Castaño does his best work with the jab. Nonetheless, Charlo scores points with his jab in the closing minute, backing Castaño up with a left hook before cutting him off and jolting him with an uppercut. Epic round.

R12- Charlo is urged to get the knockout in between rounds. While he fails to do so, Charlo does score with several 1-1-2’s in the first half, as Castaño takes a while to get anything going. Castaño does get in close and land hooks eventually, but Charlo backs him off with a left hook. They slug it out in the closing portion, and Charlo wins the exchange by pinpointing enough right hands. Both are confident that they have the fight won. Ironically, I was confident that they drew, yet I was very surprised that the contest was ruled one in a battle between two champions for undisputed. If I absolutely had to choose a winner, it would be Castaño due to Charlo winning the only swing round of the fight. However, it was by no means a robbery, and pretty much a tale of two fights. Half of the fight was Castaño overwhelming Charlo with his pressure, angles, and volume, but Charlo showed power and timing early on. By the last fourth of the fight, Charlo maximized on that in the tenth (having edged the ninth) and ran away with the rest off the fight by adding to the momentum he established. Even if he did more damage, I can’t award Charlo the bout. Both hurt eachother and implemented their styles in the bout, showing creativity, good defense, adaptability, and exactly why they were champions at the time. I was shocked we’d get a rematch, but incredibly satisfied with it. With this fight being an instantaneous, drama-filled classic, the next would be an even greater war, with a more triumphant ending.
