WBC silver featherweight champion Robinson Castellanos (16-9, 10KOs) will continue his big run on January 19th in Mexico. The venue, location and the opponent has not been determined.
Castellanos has won 11 of his last 12 fights and now occupies the number two position in the WBC's rankings. He wants to eventually secure a shot at WBC champion Daniel Ponce De Leon, who defends the belt against unbeaten Jayson Velez on March 2.
“I’ve been rising in the division. But I also know this is only achieved via hard work, and it backs up my ambition to fight for and to win the absolute world title. That will fulfil my dream. I'm fully motivated for 2013, which I'm sure will be my year,” he said.
