Otar Eranosyan recorded another impressive victory Friday night as part of Showtime’s “ShoBox: The New Generation” series.

The rugged lightweight prospect dropped Dominican southpaw Starling Castillo twice in the first round and dominated him over the ensuing seven rounds at Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando, Florida. The 28-year-old Eranosyan, a native of the Republic of Georgia, improved to 11-0 (6 KOs) and dealt Castillo his first professional defeat (16-1, 12 KOs).

Judges Fredick Fluty (79-71), Erik Larsen (80-70) and Efrain Lebron (80-70) all scored Eranosyan a wide winner of this “ShoBox” co-feature.

The outcome was very obvious by the time they reached the eighth and final round.

A left hook by Eranosyan and a right hand that followed wobbled Castillo approximately 35 seconds into the eighth round. Castillo continued to miss with most of his punches in the final three minutes of this one-sided fight.

Eranosyan landed a sweeping left hook 45 seconds into the seventh round. Eranosyan later landed multiple uppercuts inside on Castillo, who missed wildly with many of his attempts in that round.

A confident Eranosyan talked trash at times later in the seventh round.

A left hook by Eranosyan knocked Castillo off balance with about 10 seconds to go in the sixth round. A few seconds later, Eranosyan blasted Castillo with a right hand that snapped his head back.

Eranosyan pressed Castillo again throughout the fifth round and continued to land the harder punches.

Eranosyan drilled Castillo with a right hand as Castillo backed into a corner toward the end of the fourth round. Castillo defended himself better in that round, but he didn’t mount much offense.

Castillo tried to establish some distance during the third round, but Eranosyan wouldn’t allow it. He continued to out-land Castillo in those three minutes.

Eranosyan’s sweeping left hook caught Castillo flush about 50 seconds into the second round. Eranosyan drilled Castillo with another left hook when there were 40 seconds on the clock in the second round.

A straight left by Castillo knocked Eranosyan backward 25 seconds into their fight. Approximately 20 seconds later, Eranosyan landed a left hook that landed flush.

Eranosyan lunged in with a left hook that buzzed Castillo and sent him to the canvas with 1:15 to go in the opening round. Castillo tried to hold Eranosyan on his way down, but he still fell to one knee and one glove.

Castillo answered Young’s count quickly, but Eranosyan dropped him again later in the first round with a counter right hand. Castillo got right to his feet again, but he was clearly surprised by Eranosyan’s power.
