While @TwinCharlo has stepped up to say he wants the Castano rematch, there’s still a question of when. If it’s not this year (decision expected within two weeks), the WBO tells me to expect a Castano mandatory defense against Austalian hero Tim Tszyu (19-0, 15 KOs) this year.

Sebastian Contursi, manager of Brown, considers that the mandatory defenses of each world title are an obstacle to immediate revenge.
“I can not reveal certain confidential things, which are included in any contract,” he warned Contursi at a press conference. But I agree with Brian in this sense, that if both boxers want to do it, both have obligations ”.
