Caribbean Casino Gaming Corp. (CGAQ) Announces Joan Guzman's First Round Knockout and Brings IBF Caribbean Championship Title Home to the Dominican Republic(November 22, 2011)
MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 11/22/11 -- Caribbean Casino Gaming Corp. (PINKSHEETS: CGAQ) -- Joan Guzman had a "secret weapon" in his corner on Friday night at the Jaragua Hotel when he demolished Colombian tough guy Florencio "Chombo" Castellano with a textbook uppercut to the chin in the first round of a scheduled 12 round IBF Caribbean Championship welterweight title bout.
Former three-time former world champion Joan Guzman scored a one punch first round knockout over Florencio Castellano in a scheduled twelve round Welterweight bout in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Guzman, age 35 is making a run at a third world title and some real paydays, had some added confidence in knowing that his fists were wrapped by Rafael Garcia. You may not know Garcia's name but you know the Puebla, Mexico, native's friendly face. He's the ubiquitous trainer who wears all those Olympic and other sporting pins in his cap. No one wraps the hands of undefeated Floyd Mayweather except for Senor Garcia. Guzman staggered Castellano with a right hand shot and then put him out of his misery with a highlights reel quality right uppercut to the chin. Guzman is now 31-0-1 with eighteen knockouts.
Steve Swank, owner of Caribbean Casino Gaming Corp. (PINKSHEETS: CGAQ), also the producer of this IBF Caribbean Championship Fight in partnership with ESPN Deportes, is in talks with ESPN to schedule additional fights in the Dominican Republic.
