Jermell Charlo gloating about win over Brian Castano


By Robert Segal: Jermell Charlo was gloating like mad on Sunday about his victory last Saturday night over WBO junior middleweight champion Brian Castano in their undisputed 154-lb four-belt championship fight in Carson, California.

Jermell is on the top of the world today, but he’d better enjoy it while he can because his time as a four-belt champion will be over soon.

As the saying goes, “Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever,” which could hold true for Jermell soon. Sebastian ‘The Towering Inferno’ Fundora & Tim Tszyu are fast persuing Charlo, ready to end his 15 minutes of fame to bring him crashing back down to earth at light speed.

Charlo (35-1-1, 19 KOs) had the perfect opponent for him to beat in Castano (17-1-2, 12 KOs), who is a medium-powered high-volume puncher with a face-forward aggressive style.

Jermell took advantage of Castano’s lack of power & defense to drop him a couple of times in the tenth round to score a knockout in their rematch at the Dignity Health Sports Park.

This fight comes after the two fought to a highly questionable 12-round draw last July in San Antonio, Texas.

“F*** all you drum-playing mother f****, all you haters,” said Jermell in taking a shot at Castano’s fans a day after his tenth round knockout win over the WBO 154-lb champion last Saturday night.

“Y’all was playing drums all week, but you weren’t playing the drums when the fight was over with. Where are the drum-playing mother f**** at now?

“I showed these fans, and I showed these haters that I can bang & trade, I can get hit with shots. I’m a fighter, I’m a boxer,” said Jermell Charlo in celebrating his win over the non-puncher Brian Castano from last Saturday.

Jermell has going to have to do a whole lot of improvement if he wants to hold onto his four titles for his next defense, but I think he’s too old to improve enough to beat Fundora or Tszyu.

“I came here in really good shape. I weighed 152 [at the weigh-in last Friday],” Jermell continued. “That hadn’t happened almost all my whole time being at 154, so I ain’t done yet.

“I’m still growing, learning, and making mistakes, and I can learn from this fight and the last previous fights. So this is a rally right now, and so I’m on my s***.

“I’m tough to beat because of the fact that I’ve got some power and speed. I got good movement, and I can set up shots and place them where I want to. I’m trying to be great,” said Charlo.
