Panamanian Celestino "Pelenchín" Caballero has displayed a big change in his training methods. The former champion is training a lot harder and looking more intense as the title bout approaches with WBA "regular" featherweight champion Jonathan Victor Barros, which happens on Saturday June 18 in Argentina.

Caballero has not been in the ring since last November upset split decision loss to Jason Litzau. For that contest, Caballero moved up to the super featherweight limit of 130-pounds. He didn't take his training camp serious and struggled to make weight.

After the loss, he moved back to featherweight. Working very hard in camp with trainer Jeff Mayweather, Caballero already weighs 134-pounds, which is only 8 pounds above the required limit of 126 and it's impressive because the fight is several weeks away and Caballero is usually heavier at this stage of his camp. He realizes that a loss to Barros could end his career as a top tier boxer.

he did struggle to make 130, but it was his own fault. at 122 he never had any room for error in his diet. at 130 he allowed himself too much room for error. he ate like **** and after a VERY long camp, at the end he was still way overweight. too much ice cream and potato chips. at 126, he i...
