The only thing I can say about Caldo is that if he was a KO artist that he would've been at the very top of the P4P list during his time as champion, his lack of punching power was his achilles heel.

not all atg boxers...or p4p boxers were knock out artists. willie pep and pernell whitaker immediately come to mind.

calderon's skill set, especially during this era....is several notches above most.

his 19 title defenses are 2nd only to bhop, i believe. that's great company to be in.
