Former super bantamweight champion dedicated to singing reggae waits in jail for reduced sentence
Panamanian Celestino ‘Pelenchín’ Caballero, a former super bantamweight world champion who has been singing reggae since 2014, expects a judge to lower his sentence to five years in prison on Tuesday for drug trafficking.
“Tomorrow, Tuesday 27, Celestino ‘Pelenchín’ Caballero, sentenced to 5 years in prison, will appear before a Compliance Judge, who will resolve the application for community work,” the Judicial Branch reported on his Twitter account on Monday.
‘Pelenchín’, who won in 2006 the world title of the World Association of Boxing (AMB), in the super bantamweight category, was sentenced on February 8 to 5 years in prison after spending almost 24 months in preventive detention.
The former champion was arrested in March 2016 in a police operation on a highway in the Panamanian capital.
According to the Public Ministry, he had 5 kilograms of drugs hidden in the trunk of his vehicle and another 5 kilograms in a plastic bag.
Caballero, who retired in 2014, has since dedicated himself to singing reggae, admitted the facts days later and apologized to his followers. EFE
