“In some rounds that are close, they tend to give it to the opponents,” said the twin. “I got into a dog fight. I hurt him all over the ring and he never stopped going to the front. We can go back and do it again. I think it was more closed than I thought ”.

, who gave the winner to Charlo, was successful.
“Someone had it 117-111,” he began Jermell. “I think I won more rounds than him. 117-111 was very wide, but there’s no way they scored 114-114. It is not detracting from Brian Castaño, but I feel like I pushed harder than him ”.
About the immediate future, even though Chestnut insisted on the rematch in quality immediately, Charlo ruled that for now he will take a break from boxing and dedicate himself to his family.
“I am happy to have fought for unification,” he commented. “I can keep my belts for now. I can’t wait to get home to my babies, take a well-earned break from boxing, and then come back and discuss what’s next. I’m sure my destiny is to be a unified champion ”.
