Who is Brian Castano's wife Carolina Cotugno? Boxing champion is yet to plan a honeymoon
Brian Castano married his longtime girlfriend Carolina Cotugno in 2021 after dethroning Patrick Tixeira from the WBO super-welterweight world title
Brian Castano is going to face off against Jermall Charlo's twin brother Jermell at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas, on July 17. The Argentinean superstar boxer is going to fight Charlo in the latter's homestead and he's going to be under mounting pressure as support for the Texan will be massive. Castano is a world champion and he will look to defend his title against Charlo. Along with many supporters, the Argentinian will have his wife Carolina Cotugno rooting for him from the sidelines, more about her in a bit.
Charlo might not be the top pick of former two-time weight world champion Tim Bradley who in a recent ESPN interview said his money is on the Texan to emerge victoriously in the match. “Charlo wins in eight or nine rounds. He's going to catch Castano with something nasty, either an uppercut or a straight right hand," he said. However, during a virtual press conference a week before the fight Castano spoke for himself letting everyone know that he's coming prepared to claim the win, and Cotugno and the rest of his family would be present to watch him create history.
Who is Brian Castano's wife Carolina Cotugno?
Castano, like his opponent Charlo, has kept details about his married life under wraps. While Carolina Cotugno has an Instagram account, it doesn't offer much insight. But her feed does reveal that she and Castano have been together since at least 2016 and together they are raising their two beautiful dogs. Castano married Cotugno earlier this year after he defeated Patrick Teixeira, dethroning him as the WBO super welterweight world title in Indio, California. On his return to Argentina, Cotugno and he tied the knot and though there are not a lot of photos from their big day, the one with them posing with their dogs is extremely wholesome.
Castano is yet to plan a honeymoon as there was no time for him to do so after the marriage. He immediately had to get back to the United States, awaiting the confirmation that he will be fighting Charlo which was yet to be announced. The official announcement came on April 15. Castano understands what winning or losing this match will mean for him and he spoke about it at the press conference. “This opportunity to make history for my country and for Latin American people brings out very strong emotions in me. I don’t want to let down my Latin American people from all over the world. I feel an immense amount of pride in that and I am up to the challenge," he said at one point.
“This is my opportunity. This is the fight of my life. I’m a world champion and Charlo is a world champion. The chance to become undisputed is just 10 days away and I can’t wait. This is my time. This fight is so important for my life. I hope to become undisputed on July 17 for my country and for my Latin supporters," he said. The fight between the champions is for one goal which is to secure WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO super-welterweight titles and Castano spoke about how important the win is for him.
“This is one of the most important fights in Argentina’s history. It’s for four belts, undisputed at 154 pounds. It’s a great opportunity for my team, my manager, my family and most importantly, for me. This will be the hardest fight of my career," Castano said.
