Loads of other great stuff on youtube against Olivares, Rose, Herrera etc.

I've said this before, but I think Chucho was a better fighter than any of the modern trinity of Mexicans. Certainly in terms of skill. The bantam era spanning from Macias to Castillo/Herrera has become my fast favourite. So, so many very good/great fighters, most of whom are forgotten outside the smallest hardcore boxing circles. I'd love to see the Castillo-Medel fights, if they're out there.
It took a lot longer than I thought, to be honest. ...Claiming Chucho was better than Barrera, Morales, and Marquez, I mean.

I'll watch some of his fights.
