Coachella's 20-year-old rising star, Randy Caballero (8-0, 4 KO's) is rapidly becoming a fan favorite in the Coachella Valley and at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino, home to several of his recent fights. That's not surprising given his all-around boxing ability and the power that has seen him end four of his bouts in the first round. On April 1, the s rising junior featherweight star is back to face Felix Perez.
A native of Carolina, Puerto Rico who now fights out of San Juan, Felix "Ardilla" Perez (7-2, 3 KO's) is a four-year professional hoping to make an impact in his stateside debut. A hard puncher with the ability to box as well, Perez feels that at 27 years old, it's time to make a move and show Caballero just what he can do on the big stage.
