Pictured: Brian Carlos Castano


On Saturday, February 13, seven boxers ranked by TTR as being among the best currently fighting in their respective weight classes were in action. Three, Brian Carlos Castano, Ronny Rios, and Richard Commey, won; two, Josh Warrington and Patrick Teixeira, lost; and two, Joseph Diaz, Jr. and Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov, fought each other to a draw.

In addition, Azat Hovhannisyan, who had been dropped from TTR's rankings due to prolonged inactivity, returned with a KO win which almost certainly will result in his re-entry into TTR's super bantamweight Top Ten.
