Marcelo Castañeda is looking to make up for a little lost time in a big hurry tonight in Miami.
The hard-hitting Team Guardian flyweight will return to action this evening for the first time since February, when he suffered the sole loss of his blossoming pro career.
“I went to war in February,” Castañeda says.
“It was a close, three-round fight, but I lost by decision. I thought I had won the fight, but the judges saw it differently.
“But it was a good experience,” he adds. “It was my first professional loss, but it was a battle.”
Castañeda agrees you’re likely to learn more from a loss than a win. And he’s looking to showcase all of the improvements he’s made since February.
“Ever since then, I’ve had a chip on my shoulder to redeem myself by putting on a great performance and showing everybody what I’m all about,” Castañeda says.
How’s it going to feel to have his hand raised tonight?
“It’s going to be fantastic, man — it’s going to be like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders,” Castañeda says with a smile, “and I’m going to keep racking those wins up after.”
