“I feel like I’m gonna make some improvements just like he’s gonna make some improvements," Charlo said (h/t Bad Left Hook). "I’m excited to be in there again, ready to do it again, ready to go, and I just know I want to get the fuckin’ knockout. I want to knock this motherfucker out ‘cause I’m the 154-pound champion and I’ve been the 154-pound champion, and I’ve been knocking motherfuckers out. Now I’m going back to that. I don’t know what they hyped him up on. I don’t know what they telling him, everybody boosting him — nah bruh, you fuckin’ up. That’s like fuckin’ him up. Like mentally he don’t understand so while they boosting him up, I’m boosting me up. I’m much stronger now, I’m already fast. Brian Castaño, you better fuckin’ be ready. Keep your motherfuckin’ hands up because I’m coming and throwing that shit. You want to throw fast and throw a lot? I’m gonna throw fast and throw a lot too, see if you can hang with that.”
