By Rey Colon

The former WBO champion at 105 pounds, Ivan Calderon, who has spent three years away from that division, drops back down on October 29th - and faces Mexico's Raul Garcia for the WBO's interim-title in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico. Calderon is already down to 108.5-pounds.

Calderon (34-2-1, 6 KO's) is aware that Garcia (30-2-1, 18 KO's) is a better fighter than the one who showed up on August 27 when Moses Fuentes beat him for the title.

"I will not be carried away with that fight. He's a better fighter. It seems that he took the fight at the last minute and Fuentes surprised him. This is my career and my future. And this ride took me to 18 defenses and I will not quit," Calderon said.

His coach, Jose "Cheche" Sanchez, said Calderon already went through ​​70 rounds of sparring with an emphasize on speed.

Should be a good match but how is Ivan to lose?? A PR fighting in PR for the WBO title @ WBO convention...

Good to see Calderon continuing onward after the losses to Segura. . . Segura just too much of a beast! Calderon is an excellent boxer, though, and still has a lot left to give the boxing world.
