  • Weigh-ins are fun stuff however, they never have been able to see into the future.

  • Nice fight on the undercard with Amilcar Vidal and Aleem. I saw Vidal fight several months ago and was wondering when he was fighting again.

  • Charlo , hug and kiss your belt´s for the last time while you can.
    Those belt´s are travelling to the Argentina

    • I think you mean those “welts” are going back to Argentina? The only belt Castano is going back with is the one holding up his pantalones.

  • Keys for a Castano victory:

    1) Work his jab to get in the pocket;

    2) Keep his chin tucked to minimize the thump of counters. I believe Castano has been knocked down only once;

    3) Once in the pocket, STAY IN THE POCKET with sharp combination punching (especially to the body);

    4) Apply smart pressure to make Jermell uncomfortable;

    5) Move his head by staying off the line;

    6) Win over the judges by throwing 1000 punches to keep Jermell on the defensive, with limited punch output.

    Castano has the mental/physical toughness to perform all the above tasks well. However, If Castano does not perform the above tasks for a SD victory, then Jermell will win by late TKO because the larger Jermell has a longer reach (for a solid jab) with quick, stinging counterpunching skills, athleticism and some pop. Jermell also has a solid chin.

    • Agree E-man….Charlo twins …have great focus,,.counter right hands deadly….have to be able to get through the fire to beat them….stay close,.. combination punch…. watch counters…no head movement like leaving a hanging curve against a great slugger…have to move that head at all times
