Caballero: I Was The Clear Winner By at Least 2 Points

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Panama's Celestino Caballero is very angry over last Saturday's split decision loss against Argentina's Jonathan Barros, the featherweight champion of the World Boxing Association (WBA). The fight took place on Barros' home ground of Mendoza, Argentina. As reported earlier, Caballero and his team have already protested to the WBA for an immediate rematch outside Argentina.

Despite Caballero winning a few rounds and scoring two knockdowns, one judge scored it 116-111 for Barros. The other judge had it 115-111 for Caballero and the third scored it 114-112 for Barros. Caballero saw himself winning by at least two points.

"You can review the videos, with neutral judges, who are able to render an excellent decision and they will see that Celestino Caballero won the fight by at least two points," he said. "We were in Argentina. I respect what they [the judges] do, but the two knockdowns were clear. I dominated and won many of the rounds. The clearest shots were mine. He hit me a lot in the back, illegal hits. And he never took a point [the referee."

Caballero is probably right even tho I didn't see the fight, because I didn't see Caballero disputing his legit loss to Litzau. He must have really felt cheated to think he was robbed.

When you quit winning and start whining, it's a sign of decay. Caballero may have won, but not everybody thought so. He can forget about a title shot in Panama. He has to think knockout if he gets another chance.

I use to to be a fan of his but he lost to Jason and now this guy but the fight on HBO killed him you can't lose on that network because the will rip you a part.

when caballero throws a punch. his shoulder gets to the target before the glove gets there. maybe if he learns how to punch then he won't get robbed.

Thats what happens when you are a feather-fister and fight in other peoples hometowns. (See Paulie Mallignaggi and how he gets robbed after schooling fighters in their own town)
