R1- Charlo is following Jackson, but unable to close the gap. Jackson is responding with quick combos when Charlo gets close, mixing up his offensive angles well and backing him up into the ropes late because of them.

R2- The quick footwork of Jackson is allowing him to land lead looping rights and body shots before effectively getting out of range. A super low output is coming from Charlo, but Jackson is moving, blocking and countering when he does decide to throw. The round ends with Charlo getting knocked back by a check right hook from Jackson.

R3- During the few exchanges that occured in the first two rounds, Jackson was the only one able to land, as he was eaisly beating Charlo to the punch. The case remains the same early, as he trades with Charlo early and gets him going backwards after landing a chopping right hand. Charlo later seems to hurt Jackson back late with a left hook, but Jackson landed too many body shots after his big moment for Charlo to edge the round.

R4- Charlo comes out more aggressive and has an overall better round due to his improved output, but Jackson is still getting the better of it with his counter punching. He walks Charlo into a three-punch combination two times late, following up with a solid right hand right after the latter.

R5- After getting outclassed in the first four rounds, Charlo finally shows some hope. Despite getting beat to the punch in every single previous exchange, Charlo clocks Jackson during an exchange with a left hook, causing him to retreat and hold when up close. When up close, Charlo is able to get in some more short shots, most particularly a looping right to the jaw. After taking the left hook early in the round, not much comes from Jackson offensively, as he spends most of it moving away and holding. Great comeback round for Charlo, who foreshadowed the end of the fight here.

R6- Even with Jackson still taking time to recover, Charlo is unable to cut him off and capitalize. The jab of Jackson is not frequent, but it still landing. A nice exchange occurs late that goes Jackson-jab, Charlo-left hook, Jackson overhand right. Nonetheless, the exchange and round belong to Jackson.

R7- A pair of body shots from Jackson open up the round. The commentator on the video I am watching is critical of Jackson’s output, but is seemingly unaware of the clean, counter right hands and left hooks that he scored with, compared to hardly anything from Charlo.

R8- After beginning the round with a somewhat successful, mini-rally, Charlo starts to look for counters. He gets what he is looking for, as he freezes Jackson with a counter overhand right to the eye. Jackson paws at his eye and turns his back. This allows Charlo to blindside and blast him with two left hooks, causing him to unconsciously hang his head through the ropes. The count for this KO of the year contender is waived, causing Charlo to become a champion on his belated birthday. The fact this win made him and his brother’s the first two twin-champions in the same weight class is just icing on the cake. Jackson was doing everything right and having the fight of his life. Essentially, this was a longer version of the Andy Lee fight. Unfortunately for him, he inherited his dad’s chin. The power (although lesser than) and speed he inherited from his dad were not enough to break Charlo’s willpower either. It may not have seemed as such at the time, but now I think Jermell vs John’s dad would be a great fantasy fight at 154, and I’d personally have Jermell coming out on top by knockout if I had to choose at this stage. Unfortunately, I think this, the Lee KO, and other factors led to Jackson’s likely case of CTE. From here, Charlo would continue to establish one of the greatest campains in the history of the junior middleweight division.
