Team Caballero Worried as The Garcia Deadline Looms

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Rogelio Espino, the promoter for WBA featherweight champion Celestino "Pelenchín" Caballero (36-4, 23KOs), is getting worried. Espino has been talking with Top Rank about finalizing a fight between Caballero and mandatory challenger Mikey Garcia (28-0, 24KOs), but nothing concrete is happening and the World Boxing Association has given both sides until Friday to reach an agreement.

"There have been discussions, but nothing conrete and that worries us because Friday is the deadline for negotiations," said Espino, who fears the WBA will order a purse bid before a deal is reached.

Espino plans to make an offer to Top Rank and either the company will accept or present a counter.

"We are ready to hear a counter [offer] and then we'll decided what's best for Caballero," Espino said.
