Round 1:Both men take center ring as they try to feel each other out and find their respective ranges. Charlo throwing his jab at will, and he lands a lead right hook.

Round 3: Jrock still pumping out his jab with little efficiency. He lands another short combination, but Charlo comes back with a 1-2.

Jrock misses two punches but lands a solid left hook to the body.
Round 4: Jrock lands a right hand as Charlo gets on the inside. He lands a beautiful uppercut. Charlo comes back later with a combination but doesn’t land clean.

Round 5: Charlo lands a nice right straight to the body as the round opens up. Jrock lands a clean right hand coming inside, but Charlo lands nice shots in the clinch.
