10 years later: Jose Luis Castillo-Diego Corrales remembered

By Eddie Maisonet, III I can remember sitting in my house that night, on the weekend of Cinco de Mayo (May 7th 2005), wondering what craziness would take place that night. As a senior in college, my life and times were at an all-time high.

Floyd Mayweather decisively defeated Manny Pacquiao on Saturday night, scoring a victory via unanimous decision.  The bout has been panned for not living up to its “Fight of the Century” moniker and being, well, boring.  Perhaps it would have been different five years ago or more with both men still in their prime, but Mayweather was unquestionably the better fighter on...
