GOLDEN BOY PROMOTIONS AND OSCAR DE LA HOYA CONGRATULATE RANDY CABALLERO ON WINNING IBF BANTAMWEIGHT TITLE
PROMOTER PLEDGES TO HOST EL MATADOR’S FIRST TITLE DEFENSE AT FANTASY SPRINGS RESORT CASINO
LOS ANGELES (October 29, 2014) – As Randy “El Matador” Caballero (22-0, 13 KOs) returns from winning the IBF Bantamweight title in Monte Carlo, France, Golden Boy Promotions today congratulated the newly crowned champion of Nicaraguan descent on his victory and promised that hometown fans wouldn’t have to travel far for Caballero’s next match.
“Randy is so popular around his home of Coachella, and Fantasy Springs was the venue for so many of his fights as he climbed the championship ladder – put those facts together and there’s only one possible spot for his first title defense,” said Golden Boy Promotions Founder and President Oscar De La Hoya. “I’ve been saying for a long time that Randy is a true future star of boxing, and he continues to deliver on that promise. The fans at Fantasy Springs should buckle up for another fantastic fight in the near future.”
Last week, Caballero reached the high point of his young career, winning a 12-round unanimous decision against a game Stuart Hall to earn the IBF Bantamweight Title. Since joining the professional ranks in 2010, he has become a staple of the Southern California fight scene, packing venues around the area as he gained stature in the division.
A native of Indio, California who now makes his home in Coachella, Randy “El Matador” Caballero has gone from local hero to international standout as his meteoric rise has seen him defeat the likes of Kohei Oba, Alexis Santiago, Jessy Cruz, Jose Luis Araiza, Manuel Roman and Luis Maldonado.
