As Rios sat on his stool after the round, his corner began to yell at him asking him if he was okay, and what was he doing in there.

As Castellanos continued his domination, Rios seemed out of it as he headed back to his corner after the round. Commotion began taking place in the corner of Rios, involving the referee, ringside doctor, and his team. Rios’ trainer told him he had one more round to do something or else he would to stop the fight.
In the fifth round Castellanos immediately jumped on Rios, and the referee stopped the action to prevent Rios from taking any more unnecessary punishment. After the fight Castellanos said, “Don’t judge me off my record. I know what I am capable of and showed it tonight.”
