Caballero-Simion WBC Featherweight Eliminator Looms
By Miguel Rivera
The World Boxing Council has ordered a WBC final featherweight eliminator between Viorel Simion (16-0, 7KOs) and former champ Celestino “Pelenchin” Cabellero (36-4, 23KOs), with the winner landing a shot at current champion Daniel Ponce De Leon. Seven years ago, Caballero won a twelve round decision over an unbeaten 24-0 Ponce De Leon. The winner of Caballero-Simion, rumored to take place on a date in March or April of next year, would have to wait his turn. Ponce De Leon defends his belt against unbeaten Jayson Velez on March 2, and there is also a possible rematch with Jhonny Gonzalez, who has a rematch clause from their September fight.
Caballero needs to fight his way back to the top. What a waste of 2012 he has no one to blame but himself for that. I would still like to see him and JuanMa fight or Gamboa.Comment by lopez36 on 12-20-2012
