  Torres & Castillo Advance To WCBS Championship Final; Randall-Alvarez Ends In Technical Draw

Last Thursday night, Luis “Koreano” Torres (15-0, 10 KOs) and Irving “Poderoso” Castillo (10-2, 6 KOs) were semifinal winners of the World Cup Boxing Series (WCBS) “4-Man Lightweight Tournament” on the first 2022 installment of RJJ Boxing Promotions on UFC FIGHT PASS®, at Palenque de la Expo in Obregón, Sonora, Mexico.

The two tournament fights and three other bouts were streamed live and exclusively on UFC FIGHT PASS®, the world’s leading digital subscription service for combat sports.

Torres, the former WBC Youth Silver Lightweight Champion, and Castillo advanced to this spring’s “WCBS Lightweight Tournament” at a date and site to be determined.

In the main event, Torres knocked out Rodolfo “Rudy” Flores (14-6, 6 KOs) in round four, after dropping him in the second and third rounds. The pre-tournament favorite, 20-year-old Torres headlined the card in his hometown of Obregon.

In the co-featured event, decorated United States amateur Quinton Randall (8-0-1, 2 KOs) and Ivan “Ivan “Zurdo” Alvarez (31-13-2, 21 KOs) fought for the vacant WBC USNBC Silver Welterweight Championship. An unintentional headbutt caused a severe cut over Alvarez’ right end, leading to a second-round technical draw.

Castillo took an 8-round majority decision over Isai “Gaga” Hernandez (11-3-1, 7 KOs) to set-up his showdown against Torres in the “WCBS Lightweight Tournament” championship final.

In two other lightweight fights on UFC FIGHT PASS, Venezuelan Fradimil Macayo (16-1, 13 KOs) went the distance for only the third time in his career, winning an 8-round unanimous decision versus previously unbeaten Armando Ramirez Almanza (5-1-1, 2 KOs), of Mexico; undefeated 19-year-old prospect Jorge “Jorgito” Cota (7-0, 5 KOs) - the youngest in the famed Mexican fightin’ Montiel family – stopped his Guatemalan opponent Rene “Kampana” de Leon Mazariegos (7-4, 4 KOs) in the third round.
