The WBO andThe Ring light flyweight champion Giovani “El Guerrero Azteca” Segura is ready to go, as he weight-in at 113 pounds a week fromhis much anticipated rematch against former 108-pound king Ivan “Iron Boy” Calderon, headlining “La Revancha” a Pay-Per-View event, that will be telecast live from the Auditorio del Estado in Mexicali, Mexico. Photos by German Villasenor, Team Segura.

Segura (26-1-1, 22 KOs), fighting out of Bell, California by way of Mexico, captured the WBO, The Ring and WBA Super light flyweight titles on August of last year, when he knocked-out the previously unbeaten champion Calderon (34-1-1, 6 KOs) in the eighth round in Puerto Rico. Segura was leading (69-64, 68-65, 67-66) on all three judges’ scorecards at the time of the stoppage.

"It has been a good camp and I am ready to go. I right on target to the make the weight and I feel good and strong," said Segura, after his workout today.
 
The 28-year-old Segura, who will turn 29 the day before his fight against Calderon, also holds notable victories against Daniel Reyes KO1) and Carlos Tamara (DEC12). Giovanni has fought only once since defeating Calderon, last November in a non-title fight triumph against Manuel Vargas who retired after seven rounds.

Prior to fighting Segura Calderon had been the WBO light flyweight champion for more than three years (six successful title defences) and WBO minimum weight titlist (11 successful title defences) from 2003 until he moved up to light flyweight in 2007. Ivan is currently rated No. 1 by The Ring and No. 3 by the WBO.

His boxing resume reads like a Who’s Who list of great 108 and 105 pound world champions and challengers, including victories against the likes of Rodel Mayol, Reyes, Higo Fidel Cazares (twice), Nelson Dieppa, Issac Bustos, Roberto Carlos Leyva, Ednar Cardenas, Alex Sanchez and Eduardo Ray Marquez.
 
The co-feature matches Mexican featherweight champion and three-time world title challenger, Ricardo “Piolo” Castillo (39-9-2, 26 KOs), against former WBC Continental Americas super featherweight titlist Joksan “El Torito” Hernandez (21-3, 14 KOs) in a 10-round bout. Castillo is the younger brother of 2-time world lightweight champion Jose Luis Castillo. All fights and fighters are subject to change.
 
Both fighters are expected this weekend in Mexicali, Calderon is due to arrive Saturday, while Segura and his team will arrive on Sunday. Boht will hold public workouts during the week. The final press conference will be on Thursday, March 31 and the weight will be Friday.

Segura by brutal ko in the 3rd round. Puto Ricans just can't beat us in rematches. Tony/Jotto II will further prove this point.

If Calderons gameplan is to brawl more with this kid he will get stopped even quicker. I see the same result as last fight
