Molitor64644_medium For those that aren't familiar with junior featherweight titlists Celestino Caballero and/or Steve Molitor (pictured), the two men will meet in a unification match this Friday on Showtime. It's a true hardcore fan's matchup, and Showtime should be commended for making room for it on the schedule. Here are some articles from around the web so that you can familiarize yourself with the two if you don't much about them. Both are fine, fine fighters, legitimately among the top five in their division, and a win by either puts them into the pound-for-pound top 20 discussion, too.
