2005-03-19 Martin Castillo w pts 12 Eric Morel, MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA. Referee: Robert Byrd. Scorecards: 119-109, 119-109, 119-109. Outfighting his southpaw challenger throughout, Castillo (115) showed his qualities as he quickly moved to close quarters in an effort to nullify the boxing skills of Morel (115) who was often made to fight with his back to the ropes. Although a clash of heads in the tenth opened up a cut over Castillo’s left eye, the latter continued to send in body punches as well as connecting with the occasional big right to the face of Morel to make the result a formality.
