Jermell Charlo Vs. Brian Castano Agree To February Rematch In Houston

UPDATE (Nov. 29, 2021 4:02PM ET): Jermell Charlo and Brian Castano to meet again on February 26 in Houston, ESPN reported.

Jermell Charlo and Brian Castano are looking to settle their split draw decision from July.

And, according to Lance Pugmire, of USA TODAY Sports, that’s targeted to happen in February 2022 in Houston.

“An official familiar with the situation tells @USATSportsPlus that a resolution has been struck with Tim Tszyu allowing the WBO championship committee to sanction the Brian Castano-Jermell Charlo @TwinCharlo rematch that @premierboxing is expected to stage in Feb. in Houston,” he wrote. 

Charlo (34-1-1, 18 KOs) and Castano (17-0-2, 12 KOs) put on an exhilarating performance with all four super welterweight – also referred as light middleweight — titles on the line.

Castano displayed his pressure and aggression while Charlo countered with his booming power.

Many boxing fans believed Castano did enough to fend off Charlo, but the judges scored: 114-114, 117-111 Charlo and 114-113 Castano. The judge who scored 117-111 was heavily criticized for the scorecard, causing this fight to be labeled as controversial.

While Charlo-Castano II remains in the air, WBO mandatory Tim Tszyu will have to wait and see if he’ll get a mandated title shot next.
