Ivan Calderon Will Move Back, Eyes 105-Pound Return

Former two division champion Ivan Calderon once again stated that he has no plans to retire. He will rest for a few months and most likely makes his return in October when the island of Puerto Rico will stage the Annual Convention of the World Boxing Organization. Calderon plans to fight at the 105-pound division, where he ruled with an iron fist until he decided to move up in weight - and then suffered his only two losses, with both of them coming to Mexico's Giovani Segura. Calderon was unable to deal with Segura's size and power. Segura made the division limit of 108, but came to ring at 121-pounds.

"My career continues. The most important thing is that I am with my family and most importantly is that I keep wanting to continue fighting. But I think I'm going down from 108 to 105. That's my natural weight and I'll look for the WBO title. I'll return at the WBO Convention. I will fight again this year and after a few weeks of rest I will go to the gym to maintain my weight," he added.

"[At 105], I will have the same strength and weight. I can take on [fighters] who weigh 112 but not those who weigh 127 pounds. I have a couple of years left. I give respect to Giovani. He's humble, "he said.

Calderon disucssed the three round knockout loss to Segura, which took place on Saturday in Mexicali.

"I was hurt. It was a good solid blow to the pit of my stomach and he injured my nose in the second round. I went to a knee and decided to stay there to wait for the count. I was not going to get hurt," he argued.

Calderon has been a magnificent fighter to watch and he's definately too small for the likes of Segura and moving back down to see if he's still competitive is worth a shot. Age is against him.

[QUOTE=SluggerFan]Hey, just admit it, your boy quit! He even said he refused to be hurt so he stayed down on one knee. Once you quit, it becomes easier to do it again. Calderon will quit again before his career is up, once the going get's rough, he will fold. He should just retire...[/QUOTE] H...
