Charlo and Castaño, who will clash for all the super welterweight belts for the first time in history, assured it`s war.
“This is the most important moment of my life. I have been doing this since I was a kid. My experience in and out of the ring has led me to this moment. Castaño is going to leave everything in the ring. So, no play. I’ve been training really hard. I have added things that have made me better because I know it will be a tough fight, ” Jermell Charlo commented.
“I love my home state of Texas and I love fighting here. We are a state that has fought our own wars. This is huge. It’s a legacy fight for me and I’m ready for anything. I felt really good during my training camp. Better than I have ever felt. I’m at my best and I feel stronger fight by fight ”.
For his part, Brian Castaño commented:
“This is my big opportunity. This is the fight of my life. I am a world champion and Charlo is a world champion. The opportunity to be undisputed, is so very close and I can’t wait. This is my moment. I will be the undisputed champion on July 17 for my country and for my Latino fans. ”
“This is one of the most important fights in the history of Argentina. We will fight for the four belts, for the undisputed championship at 154 pounds. It is a great opportunity for my team, my manager, my family and most importantly, for me. This will be the toughest fight of my career.
“Charlo is a great fighter, there is no doubt about it. But I came here to do my job and I’m totally ready to step up. I’m the type of fighter who always goes after you. I am always there to pressure you. I think Charlo is also in the best moment of his career. That is why we are going to get into the ring to find out who is the best super welterweight fighter in the entire world.”
