CSAC: Jermell Charlo's Bottle Only Contained Water Amid Tony Harrison Complaint

Jermell Charlo's rematch victory over Tony Harrison was not without controversy and now the California State Athletic Commission has weighed in.

"Mr. Charlo's cut man asked the commission-assigned athletic inspector if he could transfer water from new water bottles to the squeezable Gatorade water bottle, for the purpose of being able to squeeze water from the bottle," the CSAC said in a statement to ESPN.

"The athletic inspector allowed this and observed the cut man take two new water bottles, open and pour them into the squeezable Gatorade water bottle.

Furthermore, Mr. Charlo and Mr. Harrison passed every drug test administered by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency (VADA), out of competition and in competition.

Boxers are required to use clear containers for water due to concerns trainers or cut men could infuse additives in later rounds to give their fighter a boost.
