Castillo Tells Provodnikov: This Will Be a Real War!

By Yuri Tarantin

Former WBC lightweight world champion Jose Luis Castillo of Mexico is predicting a "real war" when he faces Ruslan Provodnikov, a former WBO 140-pound champion, tomorrow night in Moscow, Russia. The fight takes place at the welterweight limit of 147-pounds. Castillo, 40-years-old, is viewed as a serious underdog in the contest but he believes his performance will surprise a lot of people.

"The streets here were very cold, so I was comfortable in training in a sweatsuit. The last time I went to the ring was in May, so I have not gone too long without fighting. I expect a real war on Friday, and I hope all of the fans enjoy our battle. I have not always been able to get down in weight before fights, but this time there was no problem," Castillo said
