As part of the ongoing 30th Anniversary celebration of Showtime Championship Boxing, relive the unforgettable 2005 Fight of the Year between world champions Diego “Chico” Castillo and Jose Luis Castillo. The fight has been re-aired on Showtime Extreme, and will now be available to watch via on demand, as well as online streaming.
Along with last night’s “Throwback Thursday” airing, right here you can watch the 2005 Round of the Year (Corrales vs. Castillo I, 10th round) and a reflection on the slugfest from Hall of Fame analyst Al Bernstein.
Bernstein calls it the greatest fight he’s been a part of throughout his entire lengthy history in the fight game. Certainly that’s no small statement coming from him. And when you watch that drama unfold in the 10th round and Corrales pull off one of the most phenomenal in-round comebacks ever to stop Castillo, it’s just fantastic stuff no matter how many times you’ve seen it before.
Corrales-Castillo, and all of the classic fights presented as part of the 30th Anniversary, are available on SHOWTIME ON DEMAND®, SHOWTIME ANYTIME® and via the network’s online streaming service.
