Jonathan Victor Barros vs Celestino Caballero Rescheduled for July 2

The scheduled featherweight clash for Saturday between Jonathan Victor Barros and Celestino Caballero has been rescheduled for July 2, after weather conditions forced delayed flights out of Panama for Caballero and his team.

Caballero (34-3, 23 KO) was heading to Argentina to face Barros (32-1-1, 18 KO) on Barros' home turf, but volcanic ash from from an eruption in Chile grounded his flight. Instead of waiting for conditions to clear, which isn't likely to happen in comfortable time, the parties simply decided to push the fight back a couple of weeks, which is a pretty fair handling of the situation.

Caballero, 34, is coming off of a loss to Jason Litzau last November, when the 5'11" former super bantamweight titlist decided to move up in weight for a one-off fight at super featherweight. He has stated that should he fail to defeat the 27-year-old Barros, who holds one of the 20 or so versions of the WBA featherweight title, he will retire from the sport.
