Ivan Calderon-Raul Garcia Showdown in The Works

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Peter Rivera, President of PR Best Boxing, says former champion Ivan Calderon is on track to challenge the Mexico's Raul Garcia for the WBO junior flyweight (105 pounds) title of the World Boxing Organization (WBO). Rivera wants the fight to take place during the WBO's annual convention, which is scheduled for October in Puerto Rico. In April, Calderón was knocked out in the third round of his rematch with Giovani Segura.

"The idea is that Ivan and Garcia fight on the card that is done during the annual convention of the WBO," said Rivera to Carlos Gonzalez. "Against Garcia, it would be a a fight that will define the future of Calderon. Win, and he can make defenses, but if he loses then he should seriously consider retirement. There is a 95% chance that it happens. Garcia's people have agreed, and so has the WBO."

I feel that Calderon returning to 105 is the best thing for him to do at this stage of his career. He still is a defensive wizard and perhaps he has another fight or two, however if he loses again…
