In less than a decade, Argentine boxer Brian Castano has raised his country’s profile in boxing. While his home country doesn’t have a lot of pro boxers at the top, Castano is clearly changing the dynamics. The 31-year-old, already a world champion in the super welterweight division, has attained that status without suffering a defeat.

‘El Boxi’ Castano, who made his debut in 2012, is now the WBO super welterweight champion. A win tonight will help him secure the biggest fights against the biggest boxers in or near his weight class. Though he has not faced A-listers, he has beaten everyone the promoters have matched him against.

While he looks ready for the career-defining matchups ahead, here’s a look at the statistics which define Brian Castano’s professional career as of now. Apart from the in-ring success, some stats also reflect the stardom he carries.

Brian Castano- The physical specimen

Standing at a 5’ 7 ½”, the orthodox boxer has a reach of 67 ½”. As he fights in the super welterweight division, Castano weighs around 154 lbs (70 Kg). This well-built physique is finely tuned with boxing skills. Despite not having the biggest fight in his career yet, Castano is already a mid-tier personality. Hence, he is a couple of wins away from moving to the top-tier slot.

According to the current situation, Castano might become an undisputed champion in a few hours. To do so, he will have to maintain his unblemished record.

Brian Castano and his boxing record

17-0-1 as a professional, Castano could have had a clean record. However, a controversial draw against Erislandy Lara in 2019 saw him depart without a victory for the first time in his pro-run. Meanwhile, Brian Castano has claimed 12 of his 17 wins via stoppage- i.e. a knockout ratio of 66.67%.

It may not be the best on the roster, but it may be alluring enough for the traditional fight fans. Furthermore, Castano has competed in 108 rounds in his 18 professional appearances, including 5 world title bouts. So, it’s safe to state that the Argentine pugilist is experienced enough for a bout against Jermell Charlo.

Castano also had a stellar amateur career which saw him bag several accolades. In 2010, he won gold at the South American Games. A bronze followed it in the Pan American championships in the same year. All this success validated his decision of becoming a pro, and in two years, Castano left the amateur scene.

The Argentine Stardom

Irrespective of his stardom, Castano is already familiar to traditional fans. Nevertheless, he is yet to become a household name of the combat sports community. Currently, Castano has 80.3k followers on Instagram and 6,218 followers on Twitter. Also, Sportsmanor claims that he has a net worth of $1 million.

Therefore, Castano’s pro career has been on an upward trajectory until now. However, this will result in him frequently getting opponents who can vanquish him (Jermell Charlo may be the first of these opponents). While it doesn’t take away any chances from his side, Brian Castano may need to evolve constantly on his ride to glory.
