So, Caballero is fighting Garcia in a great match and WBA "Super Champion" Chris John is fighting ......... yet another nobody. Great fight but classic b.s. by the WBA, which needs to get rid of the fake champions like Chris…

I like this fight. If Caballero can make Garcia pick up the pace it will make for a special night. Caballero doesn't have too many chances left to be involved in great fights so I can see him taking advantage…
