The memorable Lightweight World Champion, ‘El Temible’ José Luis Castillo was born in Sonora, Mexico. He is perhaps best remembered for throwing down against Diego Corrales in one of the greatest action, world championship unification bouts of all time in 2005. He also can count himself extremely unlucky to be on the losing side of a decision against unbeaten Floyd Mayweather Jr back in April 2002, after seemingly overwhelming Floyd on the inside with an excellent 12 round display of controlled aggression. Happy 46th birthday champ!
