Castillo-Abraham collide in WBC straw eliminator

Undefeated Luis “Flechita” Castillo (19-0-1, 12 KOs) will face Abraham “Choko” Rodríguez (28-3-0, 13 KOs), in a WBC strawweight eliminator on Friday the Arena La Paz, in La Paz, Baja California Sur.

For Castillo, it will be his first fight this year. In his last two fights, he beat Carlos Vado and José Ramírez by points, in June and December of last year.
