Joan Guzman is Seeking Redemption in Santo Domingo

Rugged Colombian puncher Florencio "Chombo" Castellano loves the fact that unbeaten Dominican Joan Guzman is obsessed with their Thursday night weigh-in in Santo Domingo.
Castellano, 31, owns a formidable 17-4 record with 13 big KOs and while he believes Guzman will make the weight limit for their IBF Caribbean welterweight title fight Friday night, he thinks the weight loss drama will weaken the 30-0-1 (17 KOs) physically and mentally.

"It's hard enough for Guzman, who is 35 years old, to get ready for the fight. I am coming to the DR to squash his so called comeback. I'm no easy guy, no opponent he can blow over. I say he makes the weight but will be completely drained in his body and sagging in his mind after this weigh-in," Castellano said.

Guzman, whose hand and foot speed and defense has been compared favorably to that of Floyd Mayweather Jr. (even by "Money" himself) vows that he is returning to the ring with a vengeance. Guzman says trainer Don Saxby and conditioning coach Anthony Terranova have combined with his renewed attitude to turn him back into the slick stylist he used to be.

"I looked at Chombo's record, he can fight," Guzman said. "I didn't want anyone easy, I never have fought those kind of guys. But the more this guy brings it, the worse pounding he will take.

"I have much to prove and I want to repay the Dominican people for all the love and support they have given me in the past. I will show the world in this bout that Guzman is back."

Guzman is looking to the future, not to the past.

And "Chombo" is coming to halt the Guzman comeback even before it gets started.

The Castellano-Guzman fight will be seen in the USA on ESPN Deportes.
