Former WBA super welterweight champion Miguel Angel Castellini has passed away on 27/10/20 having contracted COVID-19 at the age of 73.
Born in Santa Rosa (Argentina) 26/1/47, he was known as “cloroformo”, he boxed at super welterweight from 1965 to 1980. His last bout he won by KO against Eddie Gazo. Unusual fight fact is that he won the WBA title in 1976 by beating Jose Duran in Spain but lost it in his first defence against….Eddie Gazo. Beating him in his last bout must of given him great satisfaction and would of been a great time to retire. He did at age 33.
Rest in peace champ.
