In the course of the post-fight interview following the break up choice draw between Jermell Charlo and Brian Castano, Charlo took to the dais to debate his ideas on the battle, saying that he believes he did sufficient to take the win over Brian Castano. Take a look at a few of what Charlo has to say to media reporters under.
Charlo on the official draw consequence
“While you have a look at a number of judges, they most likely choose the battle off of how the truth that ‘Jermell Charlo is coming ahead, he actually by no means bins, he’s at all times knocking all people out, he’s hitting exhausting’ and all these different issues and them some rounds you don’t win or some rounds you edge it actually shut, they have a tendency to attain for the opponent due to the truth that I didn’t win it as truthful as I normally do.
Charlo on if he believes the draw was truthful
“Nah, I truly really feel like — truthfully I believe it was a more in-depth battle than it appears. Someone had it like 117-111. I do really feel like I received a little bit bit extra rounds than he did. 117-111 was variety of a big vary however I do consider there’s no method attainable they was similar to ‘oh, 114-114’, what I’m saying? So to not take something away from what Brian Castano did however I really feel like I pushed rather a lot more durable tonight than he did. He wasn’t making an attempt to run in there and be the Brian Castano he was, I took him out of his recreation plan.
“If (the judges) actually knew who Brian Castano was and the way he truly fights and threw like 1100…I believe I did a greater efficiency than lots of people that fought him. I didn’t see Erislandy Lara wobble him all around the ring, I didn’t see Teixeria do something like that…Derrick instructed me within the ninth spherical, ‘hey, you gotta knock him out’ (and I’m like) ‘fuck, what you speaking about knock him out? I’m beating his ass’…Like I blocked a number of photographs that folks most likely thought I received hit with. A number of photographs slid off.”
On Castano being the hardest opponent he’s ever confronted (to which coach Derrick James interjected to reply)
“I don’t assume Castano’s the perfect fighter he’s ever fought,” stated James. “He solely had his method when Jermell stayed in a single spot on the ropes. Aside from that he’s not the perfect fighter he ever fought. I believe Tony Harrison was most likely higher than him.”
