Calderon Likes Mexico Mission For Segura Revenge

By Rey Colon

Ivan Calderon, the former 108-pound champion of the WBO, would not oppose an April 2nd mission to Mexico for a grudge rematch with Giovani Segura, noting that this time he will train to the moon and show in the best shape of his life .

"I have no problem with that. If he came here, why can't I not go to Mexico. This time I will be a well trained boxer because there were some injuries present the last time, and I'll be in better condition for the rematch," he said.

"I'm not taking away his credit. He made a good fight. He acted like a great champion and I was surprised. But we are in better shape than the last time. This time we will be better and get better sparring. We will run better. We will do workouts in the same way that we did for the Hugo Cazares fight."

He explained that he is not afraid of a hometown decision.

"We're not going with the mentality that the judges are going to rob us the fight. We will fight and I think they will make the right decision raise the hand of the winner like they do here in Puerto Rico. Whoever deserves the victory will get his hand raised," Calderon said.

Same outcome again, no excuses but Calderon is on his way to retirement anyway so this fight will probably put him there.... Segura was badass in PR and he said that everybody treated him great even Tito and Juanma came…

Props to Calderon for having the balls to go into hostile territory.
