R1- Castaño is looking to cut the distance and land short punches in bunches up close, while Soro is electing to shoot double jabs from the outside. Despite the amount Soro is blocking and rolling with, Castaño’s strategy seems more successful, and allows him to be the ring general.

R2- Both are showing good defense, making it hard for the high guard of either to be pierced for a bit. Due to volume, Castaño is having an easier time landing, and he starts to loop his right hand late to land it more effectively.

R3- The jab of Soro is still landing well, but Castaño is able to completely control the fight when throwing his quick, awkward combinations. Soro is quick to shell up and or plant himself on the ropes in these instances, allowing Castaño to have his way and patiently find holes. A right over the top appears to buzz Soro at one point, but he recovers quickly.

R4- Some infighting occurs, and this plays into the hands of Castaño, as expected. Soro is apparently trying to catch Castaño in between shots, but this only allows Castaño to score with more contact in return. Castaño is also putting more “umph” on his body shots.

R5- With Castaño pitching a shutout at this pint, this is where Soro would start to make it more of a fight. He is throwing a lot more combinations compared to the previous rounds, landing several body shots after the opening bell. Soro is also upping his output when the fight gets in the inside as well, rather than just let himself be pushed back. Castaño starts to utilize his own jab, but Soro is still a step ahead with his, and tags Castaño before the bell with a left hook-right uppercut combo.

R6- Soro starts to walk Castaño down, landing jabs and right hands as he pleases. Soro’s left hook is landing frequently too, regardless if he leads with it or mixes it in with his combinations. Moments before the bell, Castaño seems to hurt Soro with an overhand right, but Soro gathers himself and tags him with a couple of 1-2’s and body shots before the end.

R7- The jab of Soro has been doing well for him this whole fight, and he manages to improve his results by tripling it frequently. This shot is keeping Castaño confused and from gaining confidence at times. Castaño is merely rushing in at times, causing him to eat some counter right hands.

R8- It appears as if Castaño is taking a breather in this round, as he spends most of it moving and being defensive. Castaño does at least dodge several shots with some head movement, but Soro is still catching him coming in with jabs and left hooks. The right is getting through Castaño’s guard rather easily. I am liking how Soro is dropping off a head to the body then the head or vice versa. Good round for Soro.

R9- If Castaño did indeed take a breather in the last round, it definitelybenefitted him, as he is throwing combinations from the getgo and pushing Soro back nonstop. Soro is still getting in counters, but Castaño is outlanding him with ease. With his guard being high and tight, Castaño is wisely digging a lot of shots to his body. In the last 30, Castaño puts together a rally, hitting Soro from every angle and momentarily overwhelming him. Soro didn’t appear to be in danger, but he lost this round clear.

R10- With most of the fight prior being a technical chess match, war would break out and stay that way from the start to finish of the round. However, neither would abandon their technique, and instead showed skill in the process. Soro is still the jabber, which is helping him before and after exchanges and allowing him to land rights through the guard, but Castaño is the one pushing forward, throwing flurries constantly, and continuously getting around or through the guard of Soro. Castaño makes Soro flee after landing a couple of unwarned rabbit punches, and he takes advantage before the bell rings. Best round of the fight, and one where both did plenty of good work, but Castaño had a bit more eye-catching moments and overall pushed the pace more often than vice versa, so I award this swing round to him.

R11- They pick up where they left off in the last round by exchanging at a fast pace. Soro is banking on the 1-2, which he is able to walk Castaño into several of. Castaño is being reliant on the overhand right, which is getting through often. Like the last round, Soro’s jab balances things out for him, but to a greater extent, and this wins him the round.

R12- Both men remain on “go” till the final bell. Each fighter is notably missing a lot in this round. Castaño is still banking on the overhand right, throwing and landing it heavily. He is also starting to get physical and bull Soro around as he pleases. Soro is persistent, but a bit too wild, and therefor eats several counters throughout. In the last thirty seconds particularly, Soro gets tagged with a lot of left hooks and overhand rights to the head. Ultimately, Castaño gets the close, but deserved win over a skilled and incredibly game fighter. I enjoyed how the fight was a fast-paced chessmatch throughout, just for the two to go gung ho in the last fourth and slug it out in what was overall a very interesting clash of styles (Castaños awkward counterpunching/pressure vs Soros quirky boxing and moving). I would have liked if the two had a rematch when they were supposed to, and I would expect that to be a fight won by Castaño in a more convincing decision. Very neat and underrated fight overall.
