Caballero chasing Castellanos return in Mexico

Phil Jay 17/06/2013

Three-time world champion Celestino Caballero is hopeful of securing a rematch with nine-loss Robinson Castellanos after the Mexican pulled of a shock split decision win in Panama City last April.

The veteran, 36, went into the WBC silver featherweight title clash as an overwhelming favourite on home soil, but ultimately came unstuck in a closely fought contest and has now told WBN he wants another chance.

“I obviously don’t agree with the scorecards but I respect the judges,” Caballero stated to World Boxing News.

“Of course I would like to fight Castellanos again and I hope this fight happens in Mexico.”

On the possibility on a move up to the bustling super-featherweight division, Caballero then added: “I won’t move up unless it is an interesting offer.”

31 year-old Castellanos has been linked to a possible fight with Golden Boy star Abner Mares on the forthcoming Mayweather v Alvarez card on September 14, with the WBC said to favour the clash for their 126lb title.
