Jose Luis Castillo Retires: "I Don't Have it Any More"

By Mark Vester

Jose Luis Castillo (60-10-1), a one time lightweight king and once considered as one of the best pound for pound fighters in boxing, announced his retirement after the loss to Alfonso Gomez on the Manny Pacquiao-Joshua Clottey undercard at Cowboys Stadium in Texas. Castillo is only 36-years-old but he went through many wars during his pro career, including the war with Diego Corrales in 2005, which is considered one of the greatest ring battles of all-time. In their first meeting in 2002, he nearly handed Floyd Mayweather Jr. his first pro loss.

Against Gomez, Castillo was barely able to land much of anything and after five rounds he was unable to go on. He couldn't come out for the sixth round. He apologized to the fans for a poor ring showing.

“I just found out tonight I don’t have it anymore,” Castillo said. “I want to apologize to the public and I am definitely announcing my retirement.”
