man, this board is really fucking dead if such a fight is not being discussed.....

anyway, who are you having here?
BigG
I made a thread on it a while back.....THIS is the fight of night IMO..

Montiel is my boy...my favorite little fighter in history. But he can lose this fight..it's a pick em'.
Titlebelt
Tough fight to call, but I'll take Castillo by Split Decision.

Im pumped for this one aswell two of the best little men in boxing going at it.

I agree this is a pick em' fight fight but I give Montiel the edge. I think Castillo's tender skin will let him down eventualy.

Montiel by stoppage due to cuts.
Mean Mister Mustard
Both guys are good boxers but the edge in speed has to go to Montiel. At the same time we know that both man can be outboxed, Castillo was losing to a japanese fighter back in 2004 I believe, until he caught him with some punches and stopped him. Montiel for his part, was outboxed by Mark Johnson. This is why the fight is good because both guys are supremely skilled but they have losses on their records so the match is pretty much even.

This is the type of fight that should be a main event in a B.A.D telecast, not fights like Forrest-Baldomir.

I also give Montiel a slight edge in power.

this is a great fight, i'm considerably more interested in this fight than pavlik-taylor.

i picked castillo in the predictions league, but this one could go either way.

Not really surprised with the outcome, though it was a little earlier than I expected!

Castillo is a bad dude im suprised Montiel dominated him the way he did.

I can't see anyone at 115lb and below that can beat Montiel.
BigG
Yeah, Castillo is a very good boxer who dominated Alexander Munoz.

Montiel gave him a whipping. No way in hell Darchinyan beats Montiel.

Castillo wasn't even in the fight. Montiel looked pretty good, impressive win. Looking at the odds and expectations on this fight, I don't think many expected Montiel to blow Castillo out of the water that early. He dominated him.


i agree 100% & he did it fighting str8 up & with no running/dancing around...he took it str8 to him & had too much power to deal with. i thought it was going to be an interesting fight & it was a total blow out.
KYLE THEEE SPINKS FAN
Wow, I was really impressed with Montiel tonight. Going into this fight, I felt as if Castillo was going to win the fight, and have never been sold on Montiel. Montiel came through though, and just dominated from start to finish. I thought Castillo was kind of getting back into the fight towards the end of the 3rd, but Montiel just nailed him to the body. That took it all out of him. Id love to see Darchinyan-Montiel, considering Darchinyan just got robbed against Gorres allegedly.

Interesting note: Martin Castillo beat Floyd Mayweather Jr in the amateurs...

LOL..Floyd must have been 14 or 15 at the time.

Castillo was a highly accomplished amateur.
BigG
A highly accomplished pro as well...too bad he lost his belt on some BS in Japan...I think this loss to Montiel is his only clear & convincing loss.

Fernando Montiel really impressed me last night, he easily had the most impressive fight of the night, the way he set up that knockdown and knockout combination was so pretty. The first time he feinted with a body shot then came up on the chin, then did pretty much the same thing to set up the knockout. SWEET!!!!

I agree George, his first loss was also controversial thats what makes Montiel's win that much more impressive.
BigG
Castillo was cut due to headbutts and it was a close fight up until the stoppage. I believe it should have went to the cards instead of being scored a TKO but I guess they thought it was from a punch.
BigG
It would have been a Techincal Draw had it went to the cards.
