Ivan Calderon: I Won't Retire, I'm Going To Fight On

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Former champion Ivan Calderon intends to continue fighting. On Saturday in Mexicali, he suffered his second straight defeat, by knockout, in the third round of his bout with Giovani Segura.  Calderon was also knocked out by Segura last August in Puerto Rico. The veteran boxer feels that there are other opportunities out there for him. He feels Seguara was too strong. Calderon came into the rematch at 113-pounds and Segura was 121-pounds by fight time.

"I do not intend to retire, because although I took some punches, I fought smart. Tomorrow is another day and there are other opportunities and I do not want to retire hurt, but with my head held high. I know that there aren't many names in the smaller weights, but I am still one of those who can sell, and I saw that on [Saturday] because it was a full house," Calderon told Jose Gordian.

Calderon still has his skills intact and does not look washed up so I think he can win a title or two still.

[QUOTE=budfr;10325467]You are the typical Puerto Rican maricon. Listen crybaby, Williams was bigger than all his foes and no one cried. Calderon is a girl and his drops of black blood make him fight like one. That is running, hugging, jabbing.…

[QUOTE=DJ_WooDoX;10324480]Calderon lost to a bigger fighter not a better fighter. His skills weren't enough to overcome the disparity in size difference or power. Segura was just way too big for him to keep him off. If they were both the…
