FIGHT'S OVER, CASTILLO APPARENTLY WILL NOT CONTINUE!!!!!
Officially, Castillo's corner advised referee Kenny Bayless that Jose Luis Castillo could not continue.
"I felt like I was getting hit too much. My body wasn't doing what I wanted it to do. Maybe this is my final fight," said Castillo.
Referee Kenny Bayless: "I went to his corner just to caution him on the low blows. But by the time I got to the corner, his trainer turned around and looked at me and said, 'The fight's over.' It kind of caught me off guard, because that's not why I went over there. So I said, 'Are you sure?' And he said, 'The fight is over.' So at that point, I just waved it off."
