Press release: In a highly anticipated match-up, the two best 135-pound boxers in the world will square off when two-time World Boxing Council (WBC) Lightweight Champion Jose Luis Castillo takes on World Boxing Organization (WBO) Champion Diego “Chico’’ Corrales in a world title unification bout Saturday, May 7, 2005, on SHOWTIME at 9 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast).


“Castillo is a tough guy.  I am a tough guy.  If there is any potential for a fight to go 12 rounds and be a war where we beat each other to death, this is it.  If it goes the way it should go, it is going to be a battle.  But if anybody is going to go down early, it is him.

“This fight will start as a smart fight and then it will turn into a shootout.  It will be a war of attrition.  At some point it will turn into an inside fight.

“When I came into camp, I was really happy and looking forward to camp because of my layoff.  And that has been such a plus heading into this fight.

“I prepare the same for every fight.  Castillo puts his pants on the same way as anyone else.

“This is going to be a knockout fight.  Together, we have got a lot of knockouts.  It should be an awesome fight.  I am looking forward to it.  It is going to be fun.”
