Caballero Blames Inactivity For Loss To Castellanos

By Ricardo Mendez Archibold

Former world champion Celestino 'Pelenchín' Caballero said his split decision loss against Mexican featherweight champion Robinson Castellanos, was mostly due to his inactivity of 16 months. Caballero had no issues with Saturday's outcome and plans to continue his career.

'I have to admit that I was affected from being inactive. The fight was very close, but thank God I had a good fight. The boy (Castellanos) deserved to win. He threw more punches, but they were all ineffective. The judges' decision was fair and I have no complaints. I'm going to relax with my family, I'm still not finished in boxing," Caballero said.

Castellanos, who dropped Caballero in the first round, also said the fight was close.

"It was a very close fight. Caballero is a great fighter. I'm sure that we'll have to fight again at some point because we are on the same path, and I thank him for the opportunity to have this fight," Castellanos said.
 
With this setback, Caballero's record fell to 36-5 with 23 KOs, while Castellanos improved his record to 18-9, 11 KOs.

from what I read & 3 clips on Spanish tv, Castellanos uthustled him...from reading CC was saying the month he had w/Floyd made him feel 5 years younger, and ready, no rust as it was gone from hard training...obviously not…

I think his slap boxing style doesn't make real fighters respect his space, and from here on out his carear is going to get really tough.
