Former two division champion Ivan Calderon is fully aware that his fight on Saturday night against Mexico's Moises Fuentes, the WBO's champion at 105-pounds, is the biggest fight of his life and the outcome will determine if he plans to continue his career or retire from the sport for good.

"That's right. This fight will define my future. If I stay or if I go. It's a very important title fight for me, at the age of 37, against a 27-year-old who is 5'8. I know it'll be the toughest fight of my career because it comes with all of those desires. I'm coming with better preparation and I'll do whatever I have to do to take the victory," he said.

Fuentes predicts a knockout victory at the Ruben Rodriguez Coliseum, but Calderon says his unbeaten streak at the Bayamon venue will continue.

"And I will continue to be unbeaten at the Coliseum. I've fought with Cazares there twice and Nene Sanchez. I proved that when I fight with bigger opponents there, I have defeated them and this is no exception. I'm coming very motivated. And age is my inspiration, and [it was the same insperation for] Sergio 'Maravilla' Martinez. And I will continue on at 105 but this is a business and if I'm champion and they offer me good money to fight at 112 pounds with Brian Viloria - I'll go up," Calderon said.

One of my favorite fighters ever...I'm really scared to watch this fight. THe calling was after the first Giovanni fight where his legs didn't have it anymore to avoid danger. At this point, I just hope he reaches the finish line.
