This Saturday in Yokohama, Japan, Panama's Celestino "Pelenchín" Caballero (35-4, 23 KOs) will defend his World Boxing Association (WBA) featherweight crown against Japan's Satoshi Hosono. Caballero makes the first defense of the belt he won in October against Argentine Jonathan Victor Barros. The third fight for Caballero at featherweight, against Hosono (21-1, 15KOs) who lost once in his career against Thai veteran Poonsawat Kratingdaenggym in January 2010.

During Friday's weigh-in, Caballero came in at 125.5-pounds, while Hosono was at the division limit of 126.

Beating a Japanese fighter in his backyard is tough, but Caballero feels up the task and he's ready to win by knockout for his fans in Panama.

"Thank God I've had an excellent preparation for this fight," Knight said in an interview with BoxingScene.com/NotiFight.com. "I feel calm, relaxed, and I'm prepared to take the title back to Panama. Since winning the title in Argentina, with Barros, I just had a week of vacation. Then I went to Las Vegas to start training again and I feel confident that I will win. Hosono is a very strong opponent, a warrior in the ring and that's good to prove who I am in this division. It will be a similar fight like I had with Daud Cino Yordan, which is a fighting style that I truly feel suits me and I do my best boxing against it."

"I hope God will bless me with this win against Hosono, and give me super fights in 2012. I want to unify titles, to fight the best. Juan Manuel Lopez never wanted to fight me, maybe now he is encouraged, and I want Orlando Salido, Jhonny Gonzalez, Chris John. I will fight with anyone who accepts and that's why I'm a world champion."
