I just rewatched Corrales vs Casa II, and thought Casa won it easily. As in, by five rounds or something ridiculous. I thought that was a disgrace.

What's everyone's thoughts on this absurd decision? If you thought it an absurd decision at all?

It was indeed a bad decision.Corrales thought that he could box with him and failed miserably as ar as I'm concerned.


The first fight was an excellent fight while it lasted.Great pace and plenty of action.Corrales was getting tagged and lit up early on,but at the time of the stoppage he was having quite a bit of success when he applied the pressure and took it to Casamayor.

Corrales should have done this in the rematch rather than try and box Casamayor on the outside.

Casamayor has had it bad man. Dude is underrated to the max, I also had him beating JLC and Freitas.

Casamayor is one of the slickest lightweight ever. His style threw everyone off specially his power wich everyone slept on.though not very exciting but pleasing to see how he step Into the ring with dangerous fighters and made them look not so great even in defeat.And your right he did get robbed in Corrales rematch but fought very close losses against JLC and Freitas!!

Most oft-robbed fighter of the 2000s other than Augustus.

I thought he won but I didn't think the decision was disgraceful. Casa wasn't winning many rounds by wide margins to me.

Obviously I'm a Corrales fan, but I always score it for Diego and I've watched it probably 10 times. This is a classic fight where there's a tendency to give a guy a round after he loses several in a row just because he does a little better. Part of the problem is also that Casamayor wins most of his rounds so decisively such as rounds 9 and 10 that you almost assume he stole some close ones elsewhere in the fight. But pretty much all the close rounds after the first 2 go to Corrales and his left hook counters on my card.

1: 10-9 Casamayor
2: 10-9 Casamayor
3: 10-9 Corrales
4: 10-9 Corrales
5: 10-9 Corrales
6: 10-9 Corrales
7: 10-9 Corrales
8: 10-9 Corrales
9: 10-9 Corrales
10: 10-8 Casamayor
11: 10-9 Corrales
12: 10-9 Casamayor

114-113 Corrales

close fight,, could have gone either way,,, I dont think it was a robbery,,


I agree with alot of the posts on here saying that casamoyer is severely underrated,, he was a very very good fighter in his prime,,,
Would have love to see him and floyd fight at 130 or 135

You mean underrated?

I vaguely remember having Chico edging it. I don't ever remember seeing him commit so much to the jab.

yes, underrated,, thanks for pointing that out, i fixed it,,,,

I havent watched the fight in awhile, probably not since the week after it happened,, need to rewatch it,,

When thinking about these 2 fighters i always remember the first fight which was very good, i think it was on the same card as toney-holyfield, and the 3rd fight when casamoyer dragged chico,, the 2nd kinda always gets lost in memory for me

It wasnt the best trilogy,,, and it was kinda spread out over a few years,,, plus the 3rd fight wasnt that good,,
And also chico and joel arent big personalities like a gatti, MAB, evander, and others that get ore hype for trilogies,,,

Cepillo was a great fighter who was the Cuban pioneer for Gamboa,Rigo and Lara. He fought everybody and was a headache for brawlers, he took away your best attributes and made you look lost out there. He had good enough power to keep you at bay and had a perfect straight left that tagged every fighter. Casamayor got robbed on many fights like the 2nd Corrales fight, Castillo and the worse one was against kid diamond who Arum thought was a star only to get beat down by Nate Campbell.

Arum always hated Cuban fighters and always made sure they lose a decision against his fighters since no one will care about a slick fighter who makes the sock em' rock em' fighters look terrible. Rigo put a clinic on Donaire and look how close the decision was

Casamayor wasn't robbed against Castillo at all. When you're initiating more clinches than you're throwing punches, don't expect to be rewarded for it. His performance reminded me of Hopkins and how much he faded and was unnerved by Calzaghe going down the stretch of their fight - after success in the first quarter or so of the fight.



As for the trilogy itself: the last two were pretty dull.
