ROBINSON "ROBIN HOOD" CASTELLANOS VS. DERRICK WILSON TO HEADLINE TELEVISA / FOX DEPORTES DOUBLEHEADER THIS SATURDAY IN MEXICO

PhilBoxing.com


WBC SILVER TITLE BOUT TO BE SUPPORTED BY THE RETURN OF VICENTE ESCOBEDO VS. FERNANDO CARCAMO

LOS ANGELES, September 19 - Owner of the most deceptive record in boxing today, Guanajuato's Robinson Castellanos will defend his WBC Silver Featherweight Championship against the United States' Derrick Wilson in the 12-round main event of this Saturday's Televisa/FOX Deportes event at the Oasis Arena in Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico.


In the co-main event, scheduled for 10-rounds in the lightweight division, longtime contender and 2004 United States Olympian Vicente Escobedo squares off against Ciudad Obregon's Fernando Carcamo.

Castellanos vs. Wilson, a 12-round bout for Castellanos' WBC Silver Featherweight Championship, is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and Cancun Boxing de Pepe Gomez and sponsored by Corona, Periodico QueQui and Quintana Roo Tourism. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. CT and the first fight begins at 6:30 p.m. CT. The Televisa broadcast will air on Canal 5 beginning at 8:30 p.m. CT in Mexico and the FOX Deportes broadcast will air live at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT in the United States.

A quick glance at the 18-9 (11 KO's) record of Guanajuato featherweight Robinson Castellanos, and you may wonder how the 31-year-old has made it to the elite level of the 126-pound weight class. But consider that after an 8-9 start to his career from 2002 to 2010, a string that included four split decision defeats, Castellanos turned everything around, winning 10 straight bouts. Among his victories are eight wins in WBC Silver title fights and an April 2013 victory over former world champion Celestino Caballero.

Another fighter whose skills show more than his won-loss record is Fort Myers, Florida's Derrick Wilson (10-4-2, 3 KO's), a 24-year-old young man who has been battling it out with fellow prospects for much of his nearly six year pro career. In June, Wilson snapped a two fight losing streak with the biggest win yet, as he handed rising star Braulio Santos his first pro loss. Now it's Wilson's turn to get a big fight in Mexico against Castellanos and he's ready to make the most of this opportunity.

Returning to fight in Mexico for the first time since his third round technical knockout of Carlos Urias in March of 2010, Woodland, California's Vicente Escobedo (26-5, 15 KO's) is looking forward to making a return to the win column after tough defeats against Adrien Broner and Edner Cherry. Still young in the sport at 31, the former U.S. Olympian is hungry for victory and he has the skill and determination to get the job done.

In search of a career-defining win that will extend his current three fight winning streak and put his name on the world boxing map, 22-year-old Fernando Carcamo (13-5, 10 KO's) already made plenty of noise with his second round stoppage of then-unbeaten Fidel Maldonado Jr. in April of 2012. Now he wants to add another notable name to his record in the form of longtime contender Escobedo.
