Former IBF/WBA super bantamweight champion Celestino Caballero (34-2, 23 KOs) of Panama and trainer Jeff Mayweather do a mit-hitting drill in Las Vegas where they are holding their training camp. Caballero may make his second consecutive appearance on HBO on November 27th in a televised featherweight co-feature at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Caballero is a very hungry fighter at this stage of his career and it shows in his work ethic. Caballero arrived in Las Vegas from Panama two months ago to begin training even though he did not have an official fight scheduled. “Celestino is looking very strong, sharp, and extremely fit. We are more than two months out for the fight and he is not far off of the fight weight already,” said Mayweather. The main event will feature WBA/WBO lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez (51-5-1, 37 KOs) defending his titles against interim WBO lightweight champion Michael Katsidis (27-2, 22 KOs).

Maidana calls Khan liar, coward

By Team Maidana

After Amir Khan’s ridiculous demands have frustrated all the efforts to reach an agreement and especially since he is tired of all the lies that Khan himself and his team have told to the media and boxing fans in the last few weeks, last night Marcos Maidana requested the World Boxing Association (WBA) to immediately call the fight to a Purse Bid.

“I got fed up with this Twitter-star. He is the biggest liar and coward I’ve ever seen. He said I was asking too much money for the fight. False. But if he has a problem with the money, I challenge him to make a winner-takes-it-all bout. But that’s not his real problem. You wanna hear the latest news from him? Now he says I’m not his mandatory! So his lawyers are trying to get a way out of the fight with me,” Maidana said.

“I’ve asked my team to proceed with the request for the WBA to call the fight to a Purse Bid. Once the Purse Bid has a winner the fight has to be made. Then we’ll see who is lying here. Let’s see for real who wants to fight and who does not. Trust me, Amir Con would relinquish his title rather than face me, “El Chino” added.

Peter camp confident

Power-punching heavyweight title challenger Samuel “The Nigerian Nightmare” Peter remained calm during the press conference and the open training sessions for his Saturday rematch against IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko – even when normally reserved Klitschko taunted him with his championship belts and his antagonistic remarks. “I hear and see what they’re trying to do, I just hope he comes to fight and not wrestle” said Peter. But Peter’s manager, Ivaylo Gotzev, says Klitschko’s unusually belligerent demeanor at the conference is a sure sign. “He’s definetely uptight. I’ve known Wladimir for 15 years and he’s starting to realize who will be in the other corner come Saturday night. That’s why he’s not himself this week. He’s already having cold and sweaty Nigerian nightmares!” Peter vs. Klitschko II will be held Saturday in Frankfurt, Germany at the Commerzbank Arena.
