Three-time world champion, Marco Antonio Barrera, will face José Luis Castillo, one of the strongest Mexican champions in history, on Friday, October 29, at the Arena Theater in Houston, Texas.
Barrera Vs. Castillo will be held at the Arena Theater in Houston, Texas, with a capacity for 2,500 people and it will also host the third day of the tournament “The Big Belt Championship.”
“When it comes to helping altruistic causes, you always must raise your hand, and what better than to be in front of José Luis Castillo, an extraordinary boxer. I never imagined being in a ring in front of him, but it will be a pleasure for me, since it will be the first time that I fight in Houston,” said Barrera.
And José Luis Castillo enthusiastically commented: “I am proud to participate in this event and more if it is to support a noble cause such as amateur boxing, which is often forgotten, and even more so against a champion like Marco Antonio Barrera. Well, I’m delighted with life.”
Part of the proceeds will go to support amateur boxing by creating a series of tournaments to boost young fighters’ careers.
