Pablo Cesar Cano Plans To Target World Titles at 140

By Rick Reeno

Mexican slugger Pablo Cesar Cano (27-3-1, 20KOs) is planning to go after some titles at junior welterweight. In his last four fights, Cano has been jumping between 140 and 147-pounds. A few months ago he dropped a decision to Shane Mosley in a welterweight bout which took place in Cancun, Mexico.

On Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, he won a ten round split decision over British fighter Ashley Theophane at a catch-weight of 143-pounds. At Friday's weigh-in, Cano weighed closer to 141.

"I felt a lot stronger [at a lower weight]. I felt very good at this weight. The contract was for 143-pounds and I made 141. The next couple of fights I want to get down to 140," Cano said

Cano seems to be getting better every fight but I don't think it's enough to win a title.

[QUOTE=TheGunslinger;13752043]The only thing I don't like about Cano is something he can't really control which is he cuts up quite frequently although I don't think he has in his last two fights. I can see him beating someone like Peterson…
