Calderón (34-1-1, 6KOs) weighed in at 108 of 113.4 (5% over) max, showing great mood and good body definition.
“I'm in camp with one of my trainers (Felix Pagan Pintor), who made my meals and is taking care of all of my issues. It's great, I feel much better for this fight, I'm feeling strong, fast and without that eating anxiety", Calderon, 36, said. “I'm in the best shape of my life after all of the work we made. On Thursday I made the 108 weight limit and again today".
The former 105 and 108 pounds World Champion will travel tomorrow to Mexico in a long journey, from Puerto Rico to New York, to Los Angeles, and then to San Diego. From San Diego, he will go by car to Mexicali.
Calderon is looking to dethrone Segura (26-1-1, 22 knockouts), who on August 28, 2010, stripped him of the 108 WBO title with an eight round TKO victory.
