    Default Jermell Charlo vs Brian Castano II 5/14 Showtime.

    The first fight was a FOTY contender in which I thought Castano was the recipient of a terribly bad decision. Credit to Charlo for agreeing to run it back. It was great to see Castano perform at that level and get some of the recognition he deserves.

    The fight is scheduled at this stage for 26 February.

    I feel Castano doesn't leave it in the judges hands this time.

    I do not think this fight was a robbery. Castano is a tough and rugged fighter who made it a brawl. If Charlo can keep it at range he will outbox Castano and win the fight.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    Castano got jobbed the first the time around, I felt. You have to take the title from the champ, but I think it was telling that Charlo didn't really have an answer and found himself out of his element against a tank of a fighter pressuring him inside. leaning against the ropes, shelling up, throwing that uppercut and pivoting off probably worked well in the gym against the sparring partners that were getting paid either way. I think Charlo has more potential to change up his game and make adjustments than Castano does.

    The question is does Castano really have to change much? He got wobbled by that same shot and definitely needs to tweak his defense but its also a by product of his fighting style. Hes going to get caught at that mid range coming in and going out. So if his camp can make him conscious of that and practice having advance inside and retreat outside through that range quickly to minimize opportunities and make his movement in that range lateral so he doesn't get caught going straight back, he can take it all the way on Charlo, if he still has that drive and durability this time around. Will he be a Baldomir or Munguia?

    As for Charlo, well the big fights going to be happening in his head. I believe he was shook. He'll tell himself he is the better fighter and he was getting cheers whenever he had Castano wobbling, but it was clear what some thought when the decision was announced and when he was talking after the fight. I really felt like he was bothered by the fact that this kid was taking his shot and not rolling over. It's sink or swim time for Charlo at PBC. is we going to be replaced by Castano that people will pay to see fight or does he sink further in into "the other charlo" role and become the danny devito twin while his brothers name is being batted around for the Canelo Sweepstakes. Wouldn't be surprised to see something desperate happen.

    I thought it was one of the most entertaining fights of the year. I honestly didn't see a robbery or shady work save for the lopsided single card by the drunk guy. Seems that card became the focus but imo other judges had it exact. A real ebb flow back and forth quality show and for once 'could have gone either way' seemed to fit. Not just the rounds but minute to minute in early mid late exchanges. Castano is a machine when he can set up shop inside and unless Charlo can take his eyes off the arena Jumbotron he's going to have a hole early all over again.

    Awesome rematch props to both and expect another corker. Like Charlo to make the adjustments with emphasis on short combination work.

    Finally it's right on our doorstep. Looking forward to this one! Top ranked 147 contender Jarod 'Boots' Ennis fights Custio Clayton in co-main.
