Linking Brian Castano to Carlos Monzon


Six degrees of separation is a theory that everyone in the world is separated by no more than six social connections.

In other words, you know someone who knows someone who knows someone who knows someone who knows someone who knows Queen Elizabeth. Or so the concept goes.

We’re borrowing the six degrees concept – well, sort of loosely – to connect fighters from the past to their more contemporary counterparts in our new occasional feature, “Degrees of Separation.”

Example: Let’s connect Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Super easy; we did it in two steps. Senior fought Grover Wiley, who fought Junior.

In this installment of the Boxing Junkie feature, we decided to link junior middleweight champion Brian Castano to Hall of Fame countryman Carlos Monzon, who last fought in 1977 and died in 1995.

It was announced this week that Castano will face fellow titleholder Jermell Charlo in a rematch on April 16 in Los Angeles. They fought to a draw this past July.

We were able to link Castano to Monzon in nine steps. Have a look:
