Showtime Media Workout Quotes: Diego Corrales

29.04.05 - DIEGO CORRALES: "Castillo is a tough guy. I am a tough guy. If there is any potential for a fight to go 12 rounds and be a war where we beat each other to death, this is it. If it goes the way it should go, it is going to be a battle. But if anybody is going to go down early, it is him. This fight will start as a smart fight and then it will turn into a shootout. It will be a war of attrition. At some point it will turn into an inside fight..

"When I came into camp, I was really happy and looking forward to camp because of my layoff. And that has been such a plus heading into this fight.

"I prepare the same for every fight. Castillo puts his pants on the same way as anyone else.

"This is going to be a knockout fight. Together, we have got a lot of knockouts. It should be an awesome fight. I am looking forward to it. It is going to be fun."


In a highly anticipated match-up, the two best 135-pound boxers in the world will square off when two-time World Boxing Council (WBC) Lightweight Champion Jose Luis Castillo takes on World Boxing Organization (WBO) Champion Diego "Chico" Corrales in a world title unification bout Saturday, May 7, 2005, on SHOWTIME at 9 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast).
