The fight between Jermell Charlo and Brian Castano, which was planned for March 19, 2022, at Crypto.com Arena, had been canceled. On May 14, 2022, the flight will now be held at the Dignity Health Sports Park. The odds for the event are below:
In Charlo versus Castano 2, the unbeaten unified WBC, WBA, and IBF super welterweight champion will face the unbeaten WBO 154-pound champion in a twelve-round championship contest for the undisputed title. In July 2021, their first battle finished in a split draw.
“The Jermell Charlo-Brian Castano undisputed junior middleweight title rematch is now set for May 14 on Showtime. The WBO ruled that the fight can proceed but must take place no later than May 14 after Castano suffered a biceps tear that forced a postponement.”
“Castano suffered the slight tear of his right biceps after he was accidentally elbowed by Terrell Gausha in sparring last month, per sources. PBC put together the impromptu card with Tim Tszyu and Gausha to accommodate Tszyu and the WBO, who were calling for the mandatory.”
Castano is going to be coming into this one recovering from a bicep injury, but it doesn’t seem as if that is going to bother him.
Odds To Win The Fight Between Charlo and Castano
The odds to win this boxing fight are somewhat similar for both sides. Considering both of these boxers are arguably the two best in the world at their weight, it does make sense. With Castano having a bit of an injury coming into this one, it could be a smart idea to take Charlo. However, Castano is still one of the best boxers in the world and despite his injury, he has a legitimate chance of winning this fight.
Brian Castano, the orthodox boxer, stands 5′ 7 12″ tall and has a reach of 67 12″. Castano weighs around 154 pounds and competes in the super welterweight division (70 Kg). With boxing talents, this well-built physique is perfectly polished. Castano is already a mid-tier personality despite not having had the greatest fight of his career. If he wins this fight, he can make a strong case for being the best in the world.
Castano is excited about the fight and is ready to show why he’s one of the best.
“I’m very happy to be fighting in front of the Latino fans in Southern California,” Castano said. “My message to the fans is that I’m going to leave it all in the ring. We’re going to be lifting up all four belts on fight night.
“I do believe that I won the first fight. It might have been by a small margin, but I won it. This time, we’re going to try everything to make sure we don’t leave the fight in the hands of the judges.”
After his injury, he had some worries but continued to train.
“I was training with one hand for quite a few weeks after the arm injury” Castano mentioned. “But right now I really feel better and stronger than ever.
“I come to do my job. He can come in yelling and screaming, but I don’t really care. I’m focused on the task and just doing what I need to.”
Charlo, on the other hand, is no slouch.
In 2013, Charlo won his first belt. He won the vacant WBC continental Americas super-welterweight title by defeating Harry Yorgey. He also won the USBA super-welterweight title after that bout. With his super-welterweight world title victories, Charlo rode this wave to the top of the category.
He stands 5′ 11″ tall with a 73″ reach. In all of his fights, the Texas native expertly uses his reach, which is why he easily defeats most of his opponents.
Unlike Castano, Charlo believes he won the fight fair and square the first time the two met and wants to knock him out this time.
“I wanna knock this motherf—– out,” Charlo said. “You know what I’m saying? The Mell that y’all knew from when I was fightin’ four rounds. You know what I’m saying? And I was going in there, trying to end that four-round fight with a knockout. You know what I’m saying? And I wanna be that guy for 12 rounds now.”
The winner of Castano-Charlo will become boxing’s first totally unified champion within the 154-pound division during the four-belt period if their rematch does not end in a draw or a no-contest.
Because Brian Castano will be fighting with a minor bicep injury, Jermell Charlo is the best option to win this fight. Although it will be difficult for him regardless of whether Castano is fully healthy, Charlo has repeatedly demonstrated that he is arguably the finest fighter at his weight in the world, and that will not alter in this bout if he is on his game and Castano is still injured.
