Castillo - Corrales I should be watched by every single person worldwide at least two or three times each week.

Later today I am going to label my Johnny Tapia career set so I would imagine I'll watch as many of those fights as time will permit. Mrs Trail will probably divorce me later today for showing Johnny Tapia more attention than her.

Yes unreal fight the 10th round epic one of the great rounds of boxing.I would also never get tired of watching Hagler v Hearns it's just such an intense short ATG fight.

You got me thinking guys here is a little known one round war,so won't take up too much of your day to watch Spanish commentary friend of mine sent it to me as he was involved with Manuel Gomez.Hope it comes out if not youtube Gomez v Hill for those who haven't seen it early present for you!

Defo . It's probably the third time I've watched the 3rd one at least
So many people cite that first fight as the greatest they've ever seen. Al Bernstein says it's the greatest fight he ever called. The second fight was awful (I'm biased as I'm a massive Corrales fan) due to weight issues and also because - in my opinion - the first fight ruined both fighters - Corrales never won again after that prior to death. Fights like that don't come around very often, and when they do they often ruin fighters due to the brutality. However the fuck Gatti and Ward didn't ruin each other is a complete mystery, but Gatti kept going. Sure, he wasn't the same, but he kept going. For me, Corrales and Castillo were done after that fight. Castillo never faced opposition as good as Corrales after this other than against Ricky Hatton and Ruslan Provodnikov.

As the wonderful Joe Rein (who was JohnGarfield on ESB) said - and he was ringside for that first Corrales - Castillo fight - "there wasn't a lot thrown in that fight that didn't land". So fucking true.

I could write a book about that fight. I could probably transcribe you the commentary off by heart too. It gets watched at least once a week in my house, cheers you up on the shittiest of days.
