Re: R.I.P Jesus Chucho Castillo
The Gomez left hook against Kobayashi reminds me a bit of Robinson against Fullmer, the way he was going backwards and caught Kobayashi coming in. Beautiful shot, it was. Brutal.
Kobayashi was a very good fighter imo, if a bit one handed. Lacked real top end durability too, though you can't blame him for the Arguello and Gomez ko's. He put in some good work in both fights before he got taken out. Did they move him too quickly into the Arguello fight, do you think? There were very few names of note on his record prior, though the unbeaten win-ko ratio looked impressive at the time, no doubt.
