Caballero To Marquez "I Am The Hunter"

HOLLYWOOD, FL, November 3 – The cheers had barely died down from WBA Super Bantamweight Champion Celestino Caballero’s spectacular third round stoppage of 46-1-1 Somsak Sithchatchawal on October 4th when bantamweight champion Rafael Marquez started making noise about moving up to 122 pounds to fight ‘Pelenchin’ for his title.

Caballero (25-2, 18 KOs), unbeaten in his last six fights (four by knockout) and the holder of the only win over fellow titleholder Daniel Ponce De Leon, has some choice words for the brash Marquez.

“I’ve heard what Marquez has said about me, and I just want to make one thing clear – he is not the hunter, I am the hunter,” said Caballero, the pride of Colon, Panama. “If Marquez’ fists are able to back up his mouth, I will be more than willing to send him back to 118 pounds with his tail between his legs. My promoters, Seminole Warriors Boxing Promotions and Sycuan Ringside Promotions have already approached Marquez’ promoter Gary Shaw, and he knows where to reach my people. I respect Marquez’ accomplishments as a bantamweight, but at 122 pounds, he will merely be a boy playing with men.”

The ball is now in the court of Rafael Marquez and Gary Shaw.
