Charlo Aiming To Destroy Castaño In Rematch

Jermell Charlo is not interested in going the distance with Brian Castaño this weekend in their undisputed super-welterweight title rematch.

The two men fought out an enthralling split draw last July and on Saturday night they go again this time at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.

Charlo, the WBC, WBA and IBF champion, is looking to prove a point in the second world title rematch of his career.

“I don’t want this fight to go the distance. I don’t get paid for overtime,” he said at Wednesday’s media workout.

“I’m putting it all on the line and I’m ready to destroy. I’m going to give the fans an exciting and entertaining show and just have fun out there.”

The outspoken 31-year-old says Castaño will have to come up with a new gameplan on Saturday night or face the consequences.

“Castaño is going to have to do something different this fight. If not, he knows he’s getting slept.

Whatever he does or whatever move he makes, I’m going to be on him. My goal is to knock him out.”
