Ivan Calderon-Moises Fuentes Clash in Play For April 28

By Rey Colon

Former two-division world champion Ivan Calderon will return on April 28th at the Palacio de los Deportes in Mayaguez (Puerto Rico). The veteran will get another shot at a world championship, as the finishing touches are being made for a showdown with Mexico's Moises Fuentes (14-1, 6KOs), the WBO title king at 105-pounds. Calderon held the WBO title for many years and retained the belt numerous times before he made a move to junior flyweight.

"We are talking about holding [the fight] at the Palacio de los Deportes. We want the people of the west to have the opportunity to see world championship boxing," said Peter Rivera, vice president of PR Best Boxing Promotions.

Calderon (35-2-1and 6KOs) is going to begin training hard in February and plans to use the same gym, the Wilfredo Gomez Arena, where he works as an instructor. Calderon says that he needs to be very focused to achieve his best physical condition to recapture the belt that he previously held for many years.

"And I still have gas in the tank for a few more years. There are fighters who are older than me and beating everyone, like [Vitali] Klitschko and Bernard Hopkins, who is 46. It's a matter of desire and care for my body," Calderon said. "It will be very interesting for me to fight with an opponent who is very tall (5'8 "). I'm going to go out there and give everything to win that title."
