Tim Bradley is putting his faith in Jermell Charlo to stop Brian Castano on Saturday night.  

Once one of boxing’s most entertaining fighters, the former two weight world champion believes that the Texas star will be too powerful as he competes for every belt at 154lbs against the rugged Argentinian. 

Both fighters enter the bout in excellent form, and with super-welterweight supremacy on the line, either Charlo or Castano will join a short but prestigious list of fighters to hold all four division titles. Speaking to ESPN , Bradley has no doubt who the victor will be. 

“I think Charlo wins this fight in emphatic fashion and I think it is going to be a KO,” said Bradley. “Charlo wins in eight or nine rounds. He's going to catch Castano with something nasty, either an uppercut or a straight right hand. 

“I think the person that is able to make the proper adjustments is the one that's going to win this fight. I honestly feel both guys have the ability to do so, but I would say that Charlo is a little more technical and cleaner with his combinations.  

“I think he will be able to make better adjustments. He also has the better corner, a proven trainer in Derrick James.”
