Jermell Charlo unified super welterweight champion earned a split decision draw this past saturday vs Wbo Champ Brian Castano for undisputed supremacy which the result has been the primary boxing conversation till this day (wilder voice) Many fans was torn in disagreement on who actually won the fight. Charlo responded on his recent ig post on the aftermath of his bout and what he looks forward too and basically his response to how a true champion takes accountability of his performance.
An immediate rematch should be ideal yet when there is that many belts on the line that means there are many rules involve and potential responsibility that can create a road blocks to the road of undisputed rematch.
4 sanctioning bodies means 4 potential mandatories. We the boxing world and the sake of both fighters legacy hope any immediate mandatory that might be order can take a page of Jack Catterall. Catterall who was Jose Ramirez wbo mandatory, stepped aside so Josh Taylor vs Jose Ramirez for undisputed would come thru fruition.
Brian Castano believed he won the fight and should have been crowned undisputed stated after the fight “I was hurt in the 10th round and i had to recoup. Same with the beginning of the 11th round. But i did enough to win the fight. I hope to get the rematch. He is a great fighter. I need the rematch.” Charlo also utter those same feelings as he stated “I want undisputed. That’s what i want. That’s my destiny.”
So in the words of the late great Marvin Gaye “LETS GET IT ON.”
