Caballero: Mayweather Jr. Fronted My Purse Bid Money! - Boxing News


boxingscene8 retweets

World Boxing Association (WBA) featherweight champion Celestino "Pelenchín" Caballero wants to set the record straight, claiming there has been misinformation printed by various outlets.

Caballero is upset with the numerous reports regarding promoter Sampson Lewkowicz's purse bid victory on May 3rd. Last week, BoxingScene.com reported that Lewkowicz appeared for the WBA's purse bid in Florida, and submitted $440,000 dollars to secure the promotional rights to Caballero's mandatory fight with undefeated Mikey Garcia. The victory by Lewkowicz made instant headlines, because he was able to outbid promotional powerhouse Top Rank, who submitted a bid of $402,000.

According to Caballero, it was Floyd Mayweather Jr. who provided the money to secure the purse bid victory. Caballero recently signed with Mayweather's Promotional company, Mayweather Promotions.

"The money [was provided by] Floyd Mayweather because their representatives could not attend the purse bid because [Floyd] had the fight with [Miguel] Cotto on May 5. Floyd bought my contract from [Lou] DiBella and he gave the money to Sampson Lewkowicz to represent him at the purse bid as an intermediary, so its not Sampson who will pay my purse, but Floyd Mayweather. [Sampson] is going to stage the fight as planned for the 28th of July," Caballero said.

"I would like to [fight Garcia] in Panama, but it is almost impossible to get sponsorships [over there]. Las Vegas is my best option, because I live there. [Los Angeles] is an option presented by Sampson, but if the fight is taking place in Los Angeles - I will not take the fight - because I am the champion and I will not go to the home of the challenger."

Editor's Note: A response by Sampson Lewkowicz, and Mayweather Promotions, is coming down in the next two days. Lewkowicz is expected to dispute Caballero's allegations and the situation could become a legal issue unless Cabellero retracts certain comments pertaining to Lewkowicz.

I don't understand how Mayweather Promotions can sign any fighter, since they reputedly have never had a licence. Perhaps they are acting as "advisors" or some other faux position, which may not need a licence. Does anybody know for sure??
