Charlo Retains WBC Continental Americas Title With Unanimous Decision!

Jermell Charlo has won a 10-round unanimous decision over a very tough Gabriel Rosado.

Charlo was extremely accurate and landed some pin point jabs and straight right hands on Rosado who did not take a backward step.  The two boxers clash heads in the fifth and a cut appeared under Rosado's left eye.

Rosado fought through it but couldn't catch up to the speed of Charlo.

Tammye Jenkins scored the bout 97-93, Steve Rados saw the contest, 99-91 and Wayne Smith said Charlo pitched a shutout, 100-90.

Charlo remains undefeated at 23-0, 11 KO's.  Rosado drops to 21-8, 13 KO's.

Main event is next -- Lamont Peterson (31-2-1, 16 KO's) defends his IBF Junior Welterweight title against the undefeated Dierry Jean (25-0, 17 KO's).

Gary the cut was from a punch not a Head butt.

The word we received was an accidental head butt. That's what I went by.

It was clearly a head butt, shown in slow motion. Gary you had it right!
