Marcus Browne Gets Off The Floor To Defeat Lenin Castillo

Uniondale, New York - Light heavyweight contender Marcus Browne (22-0, 16 KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over Lenin Castillo (18-2-1, 13 KOs). The scores were 98-91, 98-91 and 97-92.

In is last fight, in January of this year, Browne destroyed Francy Ntetu in one round.

Castillo was coming in with three straight wins, all by knockout, since suffering an eight round majority decision loss to Joseph Williams in February of 2017.

Browne was actually scheduled to fight WBO world champion Sergey Kovalev. A deal was reached, but there immediate concerns after reports surfaced that Browne had been arrested on two occasions since last December due to domestic issues with his girlfriend. He was eventually replaced by Eleider Alvarez, who challenges Kovalev later tonight in Atlantic City.

Against Castillo, Browne started at a calculated pace. He was boxing and carefully picking his shots against Castillo, who wasn't taking many chances himself.

In the fifth there was some drama, Browne was taking the fight to Castillo - who landed a solid combination to put Browne down. Browne got back to his feet and was able to shake it off and continued to box. Castillo wasn't doing much to follow up on that round, as Browne took back the momentum by using distance and boxing.

There wasn't much action in the contest. Browne was doing enough to win the rounds with his boxing ability, and Castillo was just pushing along and not letting his hands go.

No big finish by either boxer. Browne threw a few more punches than Castillo in the tenth and final round. The crowd was not exactly pleased with the lack of action and booed often.

Also on the card, IBF lightweight title mandatory challenger Richard Commey (27-2, 24 KOs) put away Yardley Cruz (24-11, 14 KOs) in two rounds.
