The fighting pride of the Coachella Valley in California, Randy "El Matador" Caballero is one of the sport's most intriguing rising stars on the verge of taking his career to the next level in a big way.
A native of Indio, California who now makes his home in Coachella, Randy “El Matador” Caballero has gone from local hero to international standout over the course of a professional career that began in 2010, as his meteoric rise has seen him defeat the likes of Alexis Santiago, Jose Luis Araiza, Manuel Roman and Luis Maldonado.
Randy Caballero has been a longtime staple of the Southern California fight scene, packing venues around the area as he’s made his way up the bantamweight ladder. But as he piled up win after win, some wondered how he would fare outside of his home state.
“El Matador” had an answer for those critics in April 2014, as he traveled to Kobe, Japan to defeat Kohei Oba via eighth-round technical knockout. The victory earned the 24-year-old Caballero a shot at a world championship, and on October 25, he packed his bags once again, as he traveled to the Salle des‘Etoiles in Monte Carlo to defeat England’s Stuart Hall for the vacant IBF World Bantamweight Championship.
Caballero is returning from an ankle injury that kept him sidelined for most of 2015, as he is set to defend his IBF title belt at Mandalay Bay against mandatory challenger Lee Haskins.
