Boxer drops boxers for bout

Saw this interesting news, a boxer decided to strip to make sure he's in the right category for the boxing. Every tiny thing counts.

Panamanian Celestino Caballero has stripped naked to avoid missing out on a shot at a boxing world title.

Caballero stunned reporters by removing his underwear at the weigh-in for his WBA super bantamweight fight with champion Somsak Sithchatchawal of Thailand.

The challenger's bold move paid off when he safely made the weight limit of 55.3kg for Wednesday's fight.

Thai media reports said last week that the 30-year-old Caballero was struggling to shed weight and had considered calling the fight off.

Caballero is a 178cm southpaw, while Sithchatchawal - one year his junior - stands 10cm shorter.

Caballero, whose nickname is Pelenchin, has won 24 of his 26 professional bouts. Seventeen of these have been by knockout.

Somsak has won 37 of his 49 fights by knockout.
