Charlo, with the physical advantage due to the height, he looked angry on his face and did not stop trying to intimidate the Argentine who smiled and began with the verbal exchange.
Jermell continued to intimidate Chestnut and with an angry face raised his fist, at the same time that the team of Brian supported it with drums and flags.
In the end it all ended in a cold handshake, but there was still a small outbreak of anger on the stage that did not pass to major.
Brian Carlos Castaño became world champion in February 2021, when he defeated Patrick Teixeira by broad unanimous decision and will now seek to become a unified champion.
For its part, Charlo obtained the scepter of CMB of 154 pounds in December 2019 when he knocked out Tony harrison, while in September 2020 those of the AMB Y FIB in view of Jeison Rosario by sending him to sleep in the eighth episode.
