After overcoming some problems with the scale, the World Boxing Council's silver featherweight champion Robinson "Robin" Castellanos made weight for his clash with Derrick Wilson. Golden Boy Promotions (GBP) and Cancun Boxing (Pepe Gomez) are staging a show on Saturday night at the Arena Oasis in Cancun, Mexico. The fight will headline "Sabados De Corona" on Televisa. Wilson comes in with a record of 10-3-1, with three wins by knockout. Castellanos has a tally of 30 wins and 9 losses, with 15 knockouts. Initially, Castallenos weighed in 2.6 pounds over the limit, while his opponent showed up on the scale at 125.8 pounds. Just over an hour later, Castellanos returned at 126 on the limit.
"I'll get a quick win by knockout. We know he uses a lot of dangerous tricks, but he will not stop me. I'm going for the world championship," said Castellanos as soon as he dropped off from the scale.
