Look at his legs. Powerful shot. Stepped forward with the second shot.
It’s one of the glamour divisions along with Heavy weight.
i suppose it’s harder for most people to respect the Divisions with the “Junior” prefix / monikers?
That shot wasn`t that hard, the jab wa hard though, B-hop`s body shot v DLH was harder.
I forget what they call it, Russian boxers are big on that step through with the right leg and right hand to turn the left into a southpaw power shot as you move forward. Diagonal punching?
You can always tell with the way he scores, and the fighters he doesn't like.
I'll be damned..... Castano outlanded Charlo in all but the first two rounds.

This is why pro boxing isn't amateur boxing. It's not all about punch stats.
Clear signs that Castano was getting broken down and feeling Charlo's shots more, that's why he got KO'd from a partially blocked shot.
You're saying it's not all about punch stats but talking about feelings one sentence later. Ridiculous statement. Scoring isn't about feelings either.
I'm not talking about feelings, I'm talking about punch impact and effectiveness
Castano was catching Charlo but quite a few were at the end of range/Charlo stepping back and taking the sting off the shot
Opinion doesn't come into, Castano got KO'd from a partially blocked shot, which is a clear sign that Charlo was consistently landing the heavier shots and they were damaging Castano. Regardless of what you think or who you like this is what happened.
Castano isn't getting KO'd by that shot earlier in the fight.
i am not sure you are understanding his statement , fully.
Watching the angles of the replay. That was not partially blocked at all.
I only saw it on the first watch but looked like it hit Castano's glove then connected with his face.
Which is plain to anybody with eyes; furthermore, his shots were of higher quality and more damaging in at least half of the completed rounds.
Shame he fell apart in R10, and credit to Charlo for going for the jugular when he got him in trouble (really was a nice JTFO, to give the devilish lion his due) - but I disagree with people saying he couldn't succeed in a rubber match or that his number is had. Through nine this was Castaño's fight to lose. He did so, but ...next time, button up his defense a little, work on his conditioning...no reason he can't stretch this good performance another three rounds.
It was not Castaño's fight to lose after 9 rounds. Charlo was clearly winning after 9. I had it 87-85 Charlo and I thought I was being very generous to Castaño to have it that close giving him rounds 4, 6 and 9 and scoring the 8th even. Each of those rounds were close. The 4th was probably Castaño's best round, the 5th was a back and forth war. The problem for Castaño is that even in the rounds that he was landing clean shots, Jermell was outworking him and peppering him with the jab, jabs to the body and well placed counters when Castaño would land. Jermell's work rate, footwork and pinpoint punching made it very difficult for the judges to give Castaño more than a couple of rounds.
Serious question: do you set out to interpret and score fights wrong on purpose, just to be contrarian, "spice the board up" a little? Is this a gimmick?
