Fight Notes: 

Jose Luis Castillo captures his first title in controversial fashion when he edges WBC Lightweight Champion Stevie Johnson by majority decision. After two rounds that appear too close to call, Johnston lands the first clean blows of the bout with some straight left hands in the third. In the fourth, Castillo loses a point for holding and hitting. They start throwing punches non-stop for most of the remainder of the bout, resulting in a number of incredibly close rounds. After twelve, the judges see Castillo notching just enough of them to lift the title.

I thought Castillo won.

The correct score is 115-112 Johnson Over Castillo.

I love revisiting this fight every once in awhile. Tremendous all-out war. Johnston isn't remembered much, but he was a skilled warrior who was always undersized as a 5' 4" lightweight. This was Castillo's coming out party to American fans. I think this one is very to tough to score on youtube as you can't see a lot of Castillo's body work clearly. I thought Johnston did the cleaner work to pull out rounds 10 and 12 down the stretch, but very, very close fight and Castillo clearly went on to prove he was worthy world champion.

I had it 115-112 Johnston.
