Golden Boy Prez: Corrales Has Dangerous Test With Castellanos

by Steve Kim

An HBO 'Boxing After Dark' triple-header was announced for July 15th that will take place from the Forum in Inglewood, California.

The main event will feature the WBC super featherweight title bout between Miguel Berchelt and Takashi Miura. Also included in this broadcast is a light heavyweight scrap between Sullivan Barrera and Joe Smith.

Also WBA 130-pound belt-holder Jezreel Corrales (21-1, 8 KOs) takes on Robinson Castellanos (24-12, 14 KOs) in what will be his American debut and his first fight under the Golden Boy Promotions banner.

Castellanos comes off the back of a stunning upset from earlier this month, when he dropped and stopped heavily favored Yuriorkis Gamboa.  Corrales crashed on the scene in 2016 after securing back to back wins over highly regarded Takashi Uchiyama.

Golden Boy President Eric Gomez says of the 25-year old Panamanian - "He's a (WBA) super-champion, he beat the guy who was considered the top super featherweight, at the time, Takashi Uchiyama, he beat him twice. Knocked him out the first time, beat him in a decision the second time. We're really high on him, he's a fighter that can challenge everybody in that division and we're excited about him because he's that good.

"And look, for his U.S. debut he's fighting a very tough guy, Robinson Castellanos. Robinson's fought some really good fighters. Knocked out Ronnie Rios, beat Rocky Juarez, he knocked out (Yuriorkis) Gamboa. So he's a guy with a lot of experience, he's dangerous. I think it's going to be a terrific fight."

 Tickets for Berchelt vs. Miura are priced at $25, $50, $75 and $125, not including applicable service charges and taxes, with a total ticket limit of 12 per person, go on sale Wednesday, May 24 at 10:00 a.m. PT.  To charge by phone with a major credit card, call Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000 or the Forum Box Office (Monday through Friday 11:00 a.m. PST to 7:00 p.m. PST) at (310) 330-7300.  Tickets will also be available for purchase at www.fabulousforum.com or www.ticketmaster.com

Props to Golden Boy. When was the last time Top Rank ever gave us a stacked card like that, on regular HBO?

I told people up in here don't look at castellanos record very misleading and that he was a serious threat to gamboa. He turned pro and learned to fight on the job. 10 of his losses were 7 years or…

Corrales needs to be on his A game. Castellanos is going to be a tough fight. He was beating Escandon who is fighting Russell this weekend before the head clash that caused his nose to break. Took Gamboas will and…
