Caballero Eyes Chris John Unification, Move To 130

By Ryan Burton

Two division champion Celestino "Pelenchin" Caballero appeared on a recent edition of The Boxing Lab, BoxingScene's official audio show.  Caballero hasn't fought in the United States since losing a split decision to Jason Litzau in November of 2010.  He has however remained active fighting outside of the country and won the WBA featherweight title against Jonathan Barros in Argentina.
 
"Its just because I haven't been offered fights here and I have been offered fights outside of the country like Argentina and Japan. My job is to fight so I go wherever the fight is at," said Caballero as he explained to us why he his last three fights have taken place outside of the U.S.

Fellow host Luis Sandoval asked the 5'11" Caballero if he had trouble getting down to the featherweight weight limit and if he had plans to move up to junior lightweight.  Pelenchin said that he wants to unify his WBA "regular" featherweight title with WBA "super" featherweight champion Chris John before moving up to 130 pounds.  

"It is a little hard to make weight but my goal is to unify the titles. I want to unify with Chris John and become a super champ before I move up to 130," Caballero revealed.

[QUOTE=Mastrangelo;12269353]I hope John finally steps up, he's one of the most irritating champions with kind of defences he's making. Caballero would beat him up really bad right now.[/QUOTE] IMO, he has the argument for him that he makes way more…
