Jermell Charlo and Brian Castano Fight Ends In A Controversial Split Decision Draw

The Jermell Charlo vs Brian Castano fight was judged a draw but many people felt that Castano, who entered the fight as an underdog, put up a better show. Brian Castano and Jermell Charlo fought to a split decision draw in their junior middleweight unification bout in San Antonio, Texas.

Judges scored the junior middleweight unification title fight 114-113 Castaño, 117-111 Charlo and 114-114. El Boxi and the Hitman will have to lock horns once again.

No.1 Australia super welterweight Tim Tszyu seemed to be impressed with Castano’s display just like most of the boxing fans. After congratulating the contender, he called him out for a duel.

Castano controlled the first nine rounds. Charlo exploded to his A-game very late into the contest. The third round was a crucial one for El Boxi who stunned Charlo momentarily when he landed many left jabs on the champion.

Castano did not want to expose himself early and conserved his energy following his game plan. The Mexican boxer outfoxed the champ with his feints and had extremely smart moves throughout the fight which made the spectators believe he has done enough in the initial rounds to take the strap from Charlo.
