Ivan Calderon Training Hard, Eyes Garcia's WBO Belt

By Rey Colon

Ivan Calderon is dropping weight slowly and expects to regain the title of the WBO, at 105 pounds, when he faces the reigning champion Raul Garcia (30-1, 18KOs) on October 28th in Puerto Rico, during the annual convention of the WBO. Calderon (24-2-1, 6KOs) said the minor layoff after suffering his second KO loss to Giovani Segura, did wonders for his body and his motivation.

"I'm working now to easily reach that weight. And I am training for Garcia or anyone in that division. We will show that I still have it. I don't feel like my age. I feel like the world champion of Puerto Rico who took the titles at 105 and 108-pounds. Last week I was at 127-pounds and now I'm at 122 ½ and end of the month will be at 118 and within the remaining two months I will arrive safely at 105 pounds," Calderon said.

Do the Boxing world a favor and retire. This was one of the most boring fighters i have ever seen punch and run i mean six k.o.'s. He'll do a lot better in running type sports.
