Fight of the year:

Castillo is best known for his grueling fight against Diego Corrales for the WBC-WBO lightweight title unification. A lot of controversy surrounded the fight. The referee Tony Weeks deducted a point from Corrales for spitting and then pinning Castillo against ropes. It was debated that Corrales was given too much time to recover during the point deduction and that Weeks did not give a fair chance for Castillo to recover. After six rounds, Castillo seemed to be taking over as he was clearly out landing and slowing down the too brave for his own good Corrales.
