Promoter needlessly risking Jose Luis Castillo's long-term health




By Kevin Iole
TAPEI -- Boxing promoters are notorious for undermatching their top fighters until it's time to cash in on them.



But what promoter Arthur Pellulo of Banner Promotions is doing for Ruslan Provodnikov's fight on Saturday is risking Jose Luis Castillo's long-term health at even greater risk by giving the Mexican a fight he is fully unqualified to take.

Pellulo was looking for an easy victory for Provodnikov, aka "The Siberian Rocky," who is trying to rebound after a June defeat to Chris Algieri in the New York borough of Brooklyn. He is paying Castillo, the former lightweight champion, $250,000 in order to take a beating from Provodnikov on Saturday in Moscow.

It's the boxing equivalent of college football's so-called "body bag games," where poor and/or smaller programs get paid to take a beating from the Division I powerhouses....

Castillo is the one to blame for taking the fight.  Its probably his biggest purse in a long time.

Castillo will take a dive like he did vs Hatton.

He has no business being in the ring these days. Especially with a guy like provod.

Unless he has hooked up with heredia, he's going to get seriously hurt if he actually tries to make a fight of it n

Is Corrales' family still making Castillo pay?

Id pick prime castillo to beat down prov.  fucker refused to go down.  He was kod standing up against Corrales in a fight he should have wond since ref kept giving Corrales breaks after three knockdowns.  shitty the way that happened he deserved the win.  SlIt was said to see him take a dive and take a knee against Hatton.  Doubt he eill be fighting to win,
