Caballero Wins, Appointed as Mandatory To Barros' Belt

By Hilmar Rojas

Celestino Caballero (34-3, 23KOs) got his wish. After making a petition and pushing very hard, the WBA's championship committee voted to make him the mandatory challenger to "regular" WBA featherweight champion Jonathan Victor Barros (31-1, 18KOs), who won the vacant title last December. However, it was also ruled that Barros would receive extension of the voluntary period before having to make his mandatory defense against Caballero. Barros now has 180 days before he has to fight the mandatory.

[quote=giacomino;10060044]Don't really care if he lost at 160. He lost. That's it. Bulls--- when you lose a 10-rounder against an unranked fighter and you cry about deserving a mandatory title shot. Caballero doesn't "deserve" s--t.[/quote] It is about as far…
