Jhonny Gonzalez-Gary Russell Winner Faces Castellanos

World Boxing Council President, Mauricio Sulaiman, confirms that Robinson Castellanos is the official challenger for the WBC featherweight championship, which is in the grasp of Jhonny Gonzalez.
 
On Monday, Castellanos convincingly defeated Rocky Juarez, conquering the WBC silver featherweight title, and that blazed the trail to Jhonny.
 
“The fight and their performances were spectacular. I think it was a great bout and a bloody one. Castellanos punished Juarez in round 9 and 10 and won well. He's earned the opportunity  to fight Jhonny Gonazales, and he's his next challenger,” said Mauricio.
  
Promoter, Fausto Daniel Garcia, was thrilled with the Robin´s performance.

“He was able to overcome adversities. He had the conviction and determination to fight to victory.”

Robinson will rest some weeks for recovering from the injuries he suffered to his eyebrows.
 
Jhonny looks set to fight Gary Russell Jr., possibly on March 28. The winner will fight against Castellanos, confirmed  Mauricio. This was decided during the last WBC Convention namely that Robin Vs Rocky is a final eliminatory bout.
 
There's also another eliminatory bout between Philippinne Marvin Sonsona and Puerto Rico's Jayson Velez
 
“We will be waiting for Jhonny to fight Gary, to settle a date,” explained Dr Fausto, who added that Robin might solely focus on getting ready to fight Jhonny,  or he might consider a tune-up bout.

Robin deserves his shot....Mares hasn't earned a shot, but if he fights Leo he will lose...Jhonny really took it out of him...

Haymon making a power play for some FW crown. If Selby takes the IBF from Gradovich, then Haymon will have claimed half of the FW gold.

What happened to the WBC encouraging unification fights? Nicolas Walters should be in the equation!
