Lujan defeats Castillo on ESPN Wednesday Night Fights!

Last Wednesday at Sycuan Resort in El Cajon, California on ESPN2, Jose Luis Castillo was outworked and beaten up by former welterweight title challenger Sebastian Lujan, who picked up a unanimous decision win over the former two time lightweight champion. Castillo is clearly a shell of the fighter who fought Diego Corrales in one of the greatest lightweight scraps of all time, as he failed to let his hands go and got hit frequently in the process. Official scores were 98-92 and 99-91 twice for Lujan. In this observer's eyes, it looked like a shutout for Lujan, who threw over 1200 punches throughout the ten round welterweight contest. Hopefully that was the end of a fine career for Castillo.
