Chico is the Man

I just caught the replay of the Diego “Chico” Corrales / Jose Luis Castillo fight. Wow. Wow wow wow! That was the best boxing match I’ve ever seen in my life. The guys were slugging it out skillfully for nine rounds, showing amazing fortitude, hand speed, will, and skill. The pace was amazing — there were only 20 dull seconds over nine rounds. The intensity was ridiculous. It was as if they were brutally slugging it out in a phone booth.

When the tenth started, Chico’s left eye was pretty much swollen shut and Castillo had a bad cut over his left eye. Castillo knocked Chico down twice in the tenth and Corrales had an additional point deducted for spitting out his mouthpiece to buy more time. Amazingly, Corrales got up and blasted Castillo into a TKO. The fight was incredible to begin with, but the ending was unbelievable.
