Caballero Says He Will Land on The 11/17 TMT Card

By Alvaro Martinez

According to WBA "regular" featherweight champion Celestino 'Pelenchin' Caballero (36-4, 23KOs), he will likely land on the November 17th card being planned by TMT Promotions, the company owned by rapper 50 Cent and WBA 154-pound champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Caballero says the fight would be a non-title bout at super featherweight. The Noveber card will feature the ring returns of Yuriorkis Gamboa and Andre Dirrell.

"I think I will be seeing action on the event, but at 130 pounds," said Caballero, who is training in Las Vegas.

The WBA issued an order three weeks ago that directs 'Pelenchin' to defend his title against Jamaican Nicholas 'Axe Man' Walters. He has until October 2 to make the fight, but wants he prefers to face WBA super champion Chris JOhn.

"The WBA wants to force me to fight Walters, but the right thing to do is to unify with Chris John," Caballero explained.

TMT and GBP need to not embark upon a civil war; Snooki is just waiting in the shadows.

I hope they do well!!!! but the only way to make it big is for Mayweather to fight in that card also, otherwise would be dificult; neider Caballero nor Dierrell, have a big following...hell not even Gamboa whom I think…
