Castillo: Who is Smith?

By Sam Geraci

On January 30th, Antwone “The Truth” Smith (22-4-1, 12 KOs) referred to Jose Luis “El Temible” Castillo (64-11-1, 55 KOs) as “just a typical Mexican fighter.” After the weigh-in for their Friday bout, which precedes the 154lb IBF eliminator between Carlos “King” Molina (20-5-2, 6 KOs) and Cory “The Next Generation” Spinks (39-7, 11 KOs) on ESPN 2 in Chicago, Castillo provided the following quote to Fightnews when asked what he thought about Smith and his comments: “Who is Smith? I never even heard of him. I will box his ears off. After this guy, I want Malignaggi.”

Molina vs. Spinks headlines this week’s ESPN2 Friday Night Fights and is presented by 8 Count Productions, Round 3 Productions, Warriors Boxing, and Blue Wave Boxing in association with Don King Productions. The UIC Pavilion is located at 525 S. Racine, Chicago, IL. Doors open at 7p and the first bell is at 8p.
