Caballero is Ordered To Face Nicholas Walters Next

By Jhonny Gonzalez

The World Boxing Association has ordered their "regular" featherweight champion Celestino Caballero (36-4, 23KOs) to face mandatory challenger Nicholas Walters (21-0, 17KOs). Both sides have until September 2nd to reach an agreement or a purse bid will be called. Caballero was previously ordered to face Mikey Garcia, who instead will target an October fight with WBO champion Orlando Salido.

TMT Promotions better keep Caballero away from Walters...HE WOULD KNOCK CABALLERO OUT! That dude is SO UNDERRATED but VERY DANGEROUS! Kinda remind me of Keith Thurman actually

Caballero must be thanking his lucky stars he didn't have to face Garcia. It would have been an embarrassment for a young TMT to have him get KTFO by a Top Rank fighter.

[QUOTE=jsfd26;12395052]For what? Russell Jr won't get no credit for it.[/QUOTE] He wants credit? He should have taken that Franco fight. He lost a lot of credit backing out of that. I'm just saying.
