By J. Arturo Contreras & Miguel Rivera

WBC silver featherweight champion Robinson "Robin" Castellanos (19-9, 12KOs) is demanding a crack at the full World Boxing Council championship, currently held by Jhonny Gonzalez. On Saturday night in Cancun, Castellanos knocked out Dereck Wilson in six rounds. Afterwards, he got on the mic and told the crowd that he wants that full title shot.

Castellanos was in line to face then champion Daniel Ponce De Leon, who lost the title to Abner Mares in May, and then Mares lost the title to Gonzalez in August. Gonzalez and Mares will have a rematch in December.

"I've already beaten everyone who they told me to, because I want the opportunity. I was told I had to remove Celestino Caballero and I beat him at his home (Panama). I don't know why Abner Mares appears as the number one contender in the ratings - because this position is now mine. To be number one, he has to beat me firet. I've had eight defenses of the silver championship. I want the absolute title," Castellanos said.
