Caballero-Walters Eyed For December 1 or December 8

By Hilmar Rojas Erazo

As previously reported on, the purse bid for the mandatory fight between the "regular" featherweight champion Celestino "Pelenchin" Caballero, and his mandatory challenger Nicholas Walters, was won by Canelo Promotions.  

Canelo Promotions, represented by Mr. Patrick Buteau, proposed December 1 in Kingston or Montego Bay or, December 8 in Kingston to promote the fight.

The only proposal on the table was from the Aztec group, representing the challenger Walters, with a bid of $ 120,000. There was no representative for Panamanian champion Caballero

Officials present were WBA Executive Vice-president, Gilberto Jesus Mendoza, Alan Kim, General PABA Director, Ratings Committee President and Vice-President Miguel Prado and Gustavo Padilla, and Championships Committee Vice-President, Aurelio Fiengo, who presided the bidding.

Before the bidding process began, Mendoza said that every last minute effort was made to reach an agreement with the representatives of Caballero. Even though there was an offer made to Mayweather Promotions - there was no response. 

Mendoza read all the mails made between both promoters, offering $160,000 dollars for the negotiation.

He also stressed "we have never harmed Caballero, or intended to do so as they are trying to tell some of the media. We are just enforcing our regulations."

Mendoza’s words were backed by Fiengo’s, who reminded everyone about the negotiating process, the purse bid and the impossibility to reach an agreement.
