Celestino Caballero: If I Lose To Barros, I Will Retire

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Celestino "Pelenchín" Caballero could very well be in the ring for the last time on June 18, when he challenges World Boxing Association (WBA) "regular" champion Jonathan Victor Barros in Mendoza, Argentina. Caballero is already returning from a split decision loss to Jason Litzau from last November in Las Vegas. He says another defeat would create closure on his career. He already informed his family that he might walk away from boxing.

"It's not an easy fight. I'll get that crown because I want to be a double world champion and for this I am preparing to make a good presentation to win. I'll tell you that if I lose to Barros, it would mean my retirement from boxing. It's a decision I have made and I have talked it over with my wife. She supports me in this. I will not become a stepping stone for other boxers. If I win, I will continue fighting and plan to unify the WBA featherweight crown with Orlando Salido (WBO) and Jhonny Gonzalez (WBC)," Caballero said.
