Golden Boy Promotions brought the action to San Antonio, Texas last night, where Robinson “Robin Hood” Castellanos (21-10, 13 KOs) displayed his power against Rocky Juarez (30-11-1, 21 KOs) at Cowboys Dancehall in the headlining bout of FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes’ Golden Boy Live! series.
Castellanos dominated Juarez early on in the fight with quick jabs and powerful uppercuts that continued to pressure Juarez through to the final round. The battle between the two seasoned fighters ended when Castellanos knocked down Juarez three times in the 12th round before winning the bout via unanimous decision with a score card of 118-106, 118-106 and 118-107.
Castellanos is now the mandatory challenger against current WBC featherweight titlist Jhonny Gonzalez.
“I am the mandatory and this time the champion [Johnny Gonzalez] will have to fight me,” said Castellanos.
Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico’s Robinson Castellanos, rebounded from a rocky start to win 13 of his last 14 fights, rejuvenating a career that began in 2002. His victories include a decision win over former world champion Celestino “Pelenchin” Caballero in 2013, and his October 2014 performance knocking out 23-0 Ronny Rios in the fifth round.
