    Former Olympian Lenin Castillo enters Golden Contract light-heavyweight tournament
    Hard-hitting Dominican star Lenin Castillo has become the latest name to be added to the light-heavyweight edition of the exciting Golden Contract tournament.

    The groundbreaking competition will be shown live on Sky Sports in association with Matchroom Boxing, and on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank, and has gripped the imagination of the public.

    WBO no. 11 and WBO Latino champion Castillo (20-2-1, 15 KOs) is now the sixth fighter to be confirmed to be taking part at 175 lbs, joining some of the best stars from around the world.

    Castillo was an elite amateur, winning multiple titles and also competing at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Since entering the paid ranks he has displayed fantastic power, with 15 of his 20 wins coming by knockout.

    Along with being the WBO Latino champion, Castillo has won the WBO NABO title as a professional too, and has also fought former interim WBA world champion Marcus Browne, with Castillo knocking Browne down during that fight in 2018.

    He said: "I'm delighted to be entering the prestigious Golden Contract tournament. I'll be chasing the knockout bonuses too and I'm definitely going to be the last man standing at light-heavyweight."

    Castillo joins a fantastic line-up at light-heavyweight, which includes former British champion Hosea Burton, unbeaten WBO European champion and WBO no. 12 Steven Ward and ex-British and Commonwealth light-heavyweight champion Bob Ajisafe.

    Also part of the tournament are former English light-heavyweight champion Liam Conroy, and former WBC International champion Serge Michel.

    The winner of each tournament will land a two-year, five-fight deal with a major promoter that guarantees six-figure purses for every fight along with global exposure.

    To add to the excitement, fighters will not know their opponents until fight week, at the start of which the highly anticipated draws will be made. All titles held will be on the line in each fight and knockout bonuses are also on offer.

    Three quarter-finals nights will take place before the end of the year, with three semi-finals nights scheduled for February / March and the all-important finals will be staged in May / June.

    I've seen a few people moan about the fact that the draw is on fight week, I really like that aspect of the tournament, be interesting to see how that alters the fighters training leading up to this. I love the concept, I like the names in all 3 tournaments. I think Hairon Socarras will win the featherweight tournament.

    Fair play to him, either he really feels himself or he has no idea who Walsh is and is assuming he's easy pickings. Couple of good fights in the draw. Wood vs Joyce should be great.

    hes 9/1 with Ladbrokes. I’m gona have a punt on that.

    There’s no way he didn’t know who Walsh is, surely him and his team had done some research in to the tournament.
    Yeah it’s a good tournament.

    For some reason I didn’t realise but it’s all on the same card on the same night isn’t it. Should be a great night of boxing.
