Randy Caballero

A 2008 US National Champion with over 150 amateur victories to his name, 21-year old Coachella super bantamweight Randy Caballero has been poison to his opposition ever since he first laced up the gloves. And opponents in the pros haven’t been spared either, as he has stopped five of his 11 foes in two rounds or less.
Born with boxing in his blood, as his father (and trainer) Marcos and older brother Robert boxed, the young Caballero was immediately smitten by the sweet science, and despite trying other sports, there was something about hand to hand combat in the ring that he couldn’t get anywhere else.
So the obvious next step was stepping into the ring himself, and at the age of eight, and weighing just 49 pounds, he began his journey through the amateur boxing world. Over the ensuing years he built a sizable fan following thanks to his talent and exciting style, and the result was a host of titles and victories. In 2008, he won the US National amateur championship and a Bronze medal in the World Championships in Turkey, but was unable to qualify for the 2008 US Olympic team because he was too young.
Undeterred, Caballero made the decision to turn pro instead of waiting for the 2012 Games, and on March 25, 2010 he knocked out Gonzalo Nicolas in just 49 seconds. His next three opponents suffered the same fate, with Edwin Rosado (43 seconds), Travis Bedwell (56 seconds) and Jairo Delgado (2:00) all falling due to the fiery fists of Caballero.
On October 15th, Caballero was back in action against Missael Nunez at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California, and he was untouchable as he scored a shutout four round decision win. The victory was the perfect segue into a year ending bout on the Amir Khan vs Marcos Maidana undercard in Las Vegas on December 11th, when he scored another shutout, this one over Robert Guillen.
Caballero returned to action on January 14, 2011 with a 40-35 across the board win over Manuel Ortega, and on March 4thin Indio, he decisioned Hugo Ramos over six rounds.
On April 1, 2011, Caballero halted Felix Perez in two rounds, and a little over a month later he made it a perfect 10-0 with a sixth round knockout of Francis Ruiz.
Sergio Cristobal became victim number 11 on June 3rd, as he stopped the 3-1 prospect in four rounds.

A former amateur star, Randy "El Matador" Caballero (22-0, 13 KOs) has been a fighter to watch ever since his amateur days, and once he turned professional in 2010, he lived up to all of the hype. He dominated his opposition both at home and abroad. A former WBC Youth Intercontinental and NABO champion, Caballero earned a shot at a world title in April by stopping Kohei Oba in eight rounds in Kobe, Japan and in October he defeated Stuart Hall via unanimous decision in Monte Carlo to win the vacant IBF crown. On February 27 the 24-year-old puts his belt on the line for the first time.
