Jermell Charlo vs. Brian Castaño
AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas, USA – 17/7/21
WBC, WBA and IBF super welterweight champion Jermell Charlo (34-1, 18 KOs) fights WBO champion Argentine Brian Castaño (17-0-1, 12 KOs) in a unification bout for the four world crowns, on July 17, at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas.
The quartet fight, which is promoted by the Premier Boxing Champions series, will be televised on Showtime.
Charlo and Castaño commented about this mega bout:
“Once you lose a fight, that’s the hardest thing. I lost before and it separates me from my twin brother. He has never lost. He is an undefeated champion right now. I was an undefeated champion who lost and I had to resolve that loss, because it made a big difference for me.
“After avenging my loss, I came back to fight Jeison Rosario, who was supposedly the best. We really trained differently for him because he was a bigger guy. But we stayed strong and we did it.
“For this fight we have a great plan. We will make the adjustments. We will continue to do what we do best. I am not afraid of any man. There is nothing that can stop me right now.
“Brian Castaño is a great fighter. He comes to fight. He doesn’t stop. He does a lot of things that are impressive to the rest of the crowd. Derrick and I have worked hard to prepare for everything. It takes a lot to jump into the ring and become an undisputed champion and with that said, I am going to do everything I can to win this fight.”
“I feel great, I’m having a great training camp and I’m looking forward to getting in the ring. This is the fight of my life and I feel great about it.
“This fight is a great honor and a privilege. Having the opportunity to unify the four belts is a unique opportunity. It’s about making history. Only a few fighters have been able to pull it off and write a golden page in boxing history books. I plan to be the first Latino to do so.
“It is going to be a tough fight between two great champions. Charlo is strong and a good fighter, but he has never suffered in the ring before. He will do it on July 17.”
