2000-07-21 Javier Castillejo w pts 12 Tony Marshall, Cubierta Bullring, Leganes, Spain - WBC. Referee: Daniel Van De Wiele. Scorecards: 116-114, 117-112, 118-110. Stronger than his American-based challenger, Castillejo (153¾) quickly got down to work with the jab and was, in the main, unconcerned by anything coming his way. There was no doubting that Marshall (154) had a good, tight defence and was especially adept at moving his head to let punches miss, but he lacked the aggression to gain a foothold in the contest to any extent, apart from throwing the odd right uppercut. How one judge made it just two points between them was strange, as Castillejo, throwing sharp combinations and solid right hands to head and body, had won clearly in the eyes of the vast majority.
