What is Jermell Charlo record?

Charlo has just one defeat on his 36-fight card and that was a shock loss to Tony Harrison back in 2018. Iron Man went off to get his revenge on Harrison and the American's draw against Castano is the only other blip on his record.

The Texas puncher has good wins over Vanes Martirosyan and Jeison Rosario and Iron Man carries respectable power in this division.

Charlo has seen seven of his last eight wins come via stoppage and the Texas puncher will be hoping to add another knockout victory to his record this weekend.

The Argentine has a good win over Michel Soro on his card and he has 12 knockout victories to date.

However, the power hasn't been as prominent as El Boxi has stepped up in class and only two of Castano's last six fights have failed to go the distance.
