KO spurs discussion of weight, rematch

Published October 10, 2005


LAS VEGAS - Soon after Jose Luis Castillo 's fourth-round knockout of Diego Corrales late Saturday, talk began of a contractually mandated third fight.

Corrales, who won the first fight, made no excuses, praising Castillo for landing a shot he didn't see. But his promoter and others around him complained Castillo had an advantage because he did not get down to the 135-pound lightweight limit. As a result, Corrales kept his titles.

Castillo weighed 1381/2 on Friday, but the fight went on after negotiations. He weighed 147 Saturday, Corrales 149.

Corrales' promoter, Gary Shaw said he shouldn't have let the fight happen, saying the next time, he would pull his fighter.
