IBF strips Caballero

By Gabriel F. Cordero

The IBF has decided to vacate the super bantamweight title held by Panamanian Celestino “Pelenchin” Caballero after two purse bids for his IBF mandatory defense against South African Takalani Ndlovu went off without the participation of either fighter’s promoter. Caballero, who who still holds the WBA super bantamweight super world championship, is finishing up the last eight months of a contract with Warriors Boxing. Considered by many experts as one of the better boxers pound for pound, the nearly six-foot Caballero continues to train under Jeff Mayweather in Las Vegas.
