Yesterday reported that #1 rated contender Mikey Garcia had signed his contract to face WBA featherweight king Celestino Caballero and all that was needed to finalize the fight was the champion's signature.

Caballero told BoxingScene that while he wants the fight, he still hasn't received a contract. The Panamanian also said that he has began training for the fight. The story can be found here.

Sampson Lewkowicz, who won the purse bid for the fight, disputed Caballero's claims of a contract not being sent. In an article written by BoxingScene's Rick Reeno, Lewkowicz said that he sent a contract to Caballero's promoter, Mayweather Promotions. The story can be found here.

Caballero still contends that a contract needs to be sent directly to him. He says that while he was released from his contract with DiBella Entertainment, he still hasn't signed a contract with Floyd Mayweather's promotional company and that he still hasn't seen a contract.

"The only thing I have signed is a waiver (releasing him) from DiBella Entertainment. I haven't signed a contract with Mayweather Promotions. They need to send the contract directly to me," Caballero told

caballero is currently a free agent, not yet signed with mayweather. sampson refuses to send the contract directly to caballero because of a past beef. i dont see how caballero is punking out or ducking. anybody who has the contract right now can contact caballero and he will sign it. in fact...

Caballero punking out again.

If Mayweather Promotions is a "joke" as someone has said, then having Mayweather Promotions serving behind bars but not serving beer, can be another joke.

[QUOTE=DoktorSleepless]Jesus, why can't Caballero simply give Sampson a phone call if he needs the contract sent to him directly? Such a drama queen.[/QUOTE] looks like he is trying to duck a fight
