Castillo looking to break “The Menace”

The last time lightweight prospect Danny Castillo (14-4) was inside the Octagon, a New Jersey crowd was booing his effort against John Cholish, a full-time commodities broker and Renzo Gracie-trained fighter who’s fighting style pretty much nullified his own at UFC on FOX 3 in May . . .

Barker injured; pulls out of fight

Welterweight Lee Purdy will face unbeaten Argentine Gumersindo Carrasco for the IBF International title in the new main event on September 8 at the Alexandra Palace, north London. Former middleweight title challenger Darren Barker was forced to withdraw from his headlining clash with Simone Rotolo after an arm injury. “I am gutted for Darren as he’s been looking great in training and I know he was ready to get back to what he does best,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “The only good news is that it is a new injury rather than an aggravation of an old injury and we hope he will be back in action very soon.”

Gold Medalist Murata Calls It Quits

By Joe Koizumi

Olympic gold medalist in the middleweight class, sensational Japanese Ryota Murata, 26, expressed that he would not box any more, much less turn professional—to concentrate on his second career as an instructor to cultivate future medalists like him. Murata became the first Olympic gold medalist in 48 years since Takao Sakurai in the Tokyo Games in 1964, as he narrowly defeated Brazilian Esquiva Falcao by a hairline 14-13 decision in London. Some promoters or managers have made attractive offers for Murata to enter the paid ranks. The hard-hitting six-footer, however, declined to accept any of those proposals but decided to call it quits and study more on sports science abroad. It is a very smart decision for Murata since it will be very hard to be successful in the professional 160-pound category. We hope his bright future as the leader in our Japanese amateur field.

Abraham, Stieglitz speak

New WBO super middleweight champion Arthur Abraham: “It´s such an emotional moment for me right now and I can’t really describe it. I worked hard and concentrated throughout the preparations for this chance and I boxed smart – that’s the secret of this victory.”

Former champion Robert Stieglitz, who relinquished the title in his seventh defense: “I have made a lot of mistakes today and from round seven onwards I wasn’t able to see properly through my left eye. Nevertheless, I continued fighting but it just wasn’t meant to be.”

The Count’s Quotables

With Chael Sonnen gaining heroic status for accepting a short notice fight with light heavyweight champion Jon Jones a few days ago (a bout that ultimately went to Vitor Belfort), the title of most polarizing UFC fighter may be heading back to middleweight contender Michael “The Count” Bisping, who certainly has a love / hate relationship with the UFC fanbase . . .
