Chris Algieri: When you look at records you lean towards Orlando Gonzalez, but don't sleep on a guy like Jorge Castaneda

PhilBoxing.com





Orlando Gonzalez will collide with Jorge Castaneda on ProBox TV's Wednesday Night Fights in two days time. The pair will clash over 10 rounds at super featherweight as the main attraction in Plant City, Florida.

Gonzalez (21-2, 12 KOs) took part in a Fight of the Year contender defeating Ramiro Cesena on points this past July. Castaneda (16-2, 12 KOs) comes off a late knockout victory against Nestor Medellin in August.

Former world champion and WNF commentator Chris Algieri previewed the upcoming bout.

"Castaneda is a tough guy, an upset minded guy." Algieri said. "He beat the very highly touted Otha Jones III. Gave him his first loss, he was a really good amateur, who I think was signed right away to Matchroom. There was a lot of hype behind him and Castaneda beat him. A couple of fights ago he had a shootout that did not go his way, with Eduardo Hernandez who just had an incredible fight with O'Shaquie Foster. He's got some losses on his record but he's fought some stiff competition. Those are the types of guys we always get here.

"We've had Orlando Gonzalez on our air before, he was in a super exciting fight. He had an incredible fight with Cesena last time out. He's looking to keep that momentum going. He is going to be a third time ProBox participant, which I tip my hat to. Any fighter that fights more than once on ProBox is tough because our fights are really tough. There are no easy fights on our air. Anyone who comes knows they are stepping into the meat grinder. Gonzalez is willing to do it again and he's got a stiff challenge in front of him. Looking at records you are going to lean towards Gonzalez, but don't sleep on a guy like Castaneda. He's coming off a win, knocking out an undefeated opponent in his last fight which he rebounded from a first round knockout loss. He's a live dog, he's got a lot to prove. Both these guys do."
