Before the savage lightweight unification fight, Castillo predicted "This fight will be like two buffaloes colliding." He was right, as they waged an incredible slugfest that was already an all-time great fight before the jaw-dropping 10th round, during which Corrales went down twice and was all but out but miraculously survived to stop Castillo in one of the most dramatic comebacks in sports history. Sadly, Corrales died in a drunken motorcycle crash on the bout's second anniversary.
