The new WBO middleweight champion (up to 69.9 kg), Argentine Brian Castagno (17-0-1, 12 KO), who outboxed Brazilian Patrick Teixeira (31-2-0, 22 KO) today in California, announced his readiness to fight with division leader American Jermell Charlo (34-1-0, 18 KO).
“When I beat Teixeira,” the fighter said at the final press conference before the fight, “I will go after Charlo. He is an excellent fighter holding the remaining three belts, and I will be well paid for this meeting. And he will become my victim. “
And that is quite possible since both Castagno and Charlo are performing on FOX / Showtime.
