Good fight!

I'd back Charlo.

Charlo gives away rounds getting lazy at times but with Castano he's going to have to work. Castano also isn't going to be able to walk him down the way he did with Teixeira either as I'd back Charlo to have the power to hurt Castano and the ability to land it if Castano isn't cautious.


Also it's a great fight as it's unification. Doesn't matter who has the belts. Putting them together is always a positive in my books.

I watched a virtual press conference earlier between these two, it said in the description that it was the kick-off presser but it's fight week and they already had a press conference a month or so ago so not quite sure what the point of this recent one was (unless they're not going to have a proper one on Thursday and this is the final one already) but anyway Charlo seems to feel very victimised by the media, he was snapping at Dan Rafael for The Ring and someone else from ESPN, it's fight week he doesn't need to worry about what the media think, he says he doesn't care and then goes on a rant about how much he cares mainly about not being on their P4P lists.

As far as I'm concerned this is undefeated vs undefeated for the undisputed championship of the world, should be in for a good fight, the undercard's not the strongest but I might stay up/wake up for the main, after all, history will be made on Saturday night :bbb

Who dafuk is Brian Castano?

The only time he faced a real opponent, he just barely squeaked by an aging Lara. (And IMO he lost that fight.)


IMO, this is just sad.

Castano could win and move up to face the brother for the WBC MW Title.
Charlo could win and become mandatory to Andrade with the WBO or look for the Golovkin payday...

Castano is small, but he's a workhorse. I feel like both Charlos need to fight at a pace or are prone to gassing, but that's just me. Anyways, Castano will test his stamina for sure because the guy walks down everyone and fights at a high pace.

I don't think this Charlo hits as hard as his MW twin either. We'll see, but I feel this can end up like Charlo/Korobov with Charlo looking winning a controversial decision.

He'd be crazy to do that. Castano is ridiculously small at SMW. He should be fighting at WW and ending his career at SMW. I can't see him being effective against the guys at MW. Best bet for him is to wait for Spence Jr., Vergil Ortiz, Crawford, etc. to move up and get a payday, granted he wins.
