Caballero: If WBA Denies a Barros Rematch, I'm Done

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Former champion Celestino "Pelenchín" Caballero has filed an official petition with the WBA, hoping the sanctioning body will order an immediate rematch with WBA "regular" featherweight champion Jonathan Barros. Despite two knockdowns and several winning rounds, two of the three judges awarded Barros a split decision win over Caballero, with scores of 116-111 and 114-112. The fight was held in Barros' hometown of Mendoza in Argentina.

If the WBA denies his request, Caballero will likely walk away from boxing.

"All of the documentation is being held by the WBA. We have to wait and see if I get the rematch. I think if there won't be a rematch, I have nothing else to do in boxing. I would like to fight him in Panama. I went to his house, and now he can come here. Believe me, if there is another fight, this time I'm looking for a knockout," Caballero said.

Hopefully the WBA grants the rematch. It would suck so bad if Caballero had to retire with that lost.
