Panamanian boxer and former champion Celestino "Pelenchín" Caballero is still sticking to his previous position. On June 18, he will travel to Argentina to face hometown champion Jonathan "Joni" Barros for the featherweight title of the World Boxing Association (WBA). Caballero recently promised to retire if Barros somehow won the fight. There has been no change in Caballero's mood. If Barros wins, the Panamanian fighter still plans to retire.
"That's what I said will happen if Barros wins - because I do not think that he has the boxing ability to beat me. I'm in better shape than when I went to fight in Thailand and Canada," said Caballero. "This isn't the toughest fight of my career, because I've been matched against stronger fighters."
