Randy Caballero Discusses His Recent Victory, More

By Ryan Burton

Undefeated bantamweight prospect Randy "El Matador" Caballero appeared on a recent edition of BoxingScene's official audio show, The Boxing Lab. The 22-year-old Southern California native spoke to us about his fourth round knockout victory over Luis Maldonado (36-11) that took place this past Saturday.

"We sparred with him before. When he came he gave us a beautiful sparring session and afterwards my dad said one day we were going to have to fight this guy.  I knew he would come to fight. I knew that this was a fight where I had to show what I have," explained Caballero.

The fighter of Nicaraguan descent said that their training camp was perfect for the Mexican veteran. Maldonado is a very experienced fighter who has faced the likes of Nonito Donaire, Vic Darchinyan, Fernando Montiel and Eric Morel. 

"What we trained for was exactly what he brought to the table.  The guys we sparred were perfect for his style," Caballero stated.

The fight took place at the Fantasy Springs Casino which is close to his hometown of Coachella. Caballero said that he was happy to fight in front of his loyal fans. He said that he doesn't have the date for his next fight yet but hopes to return soon.  

"I was very happy to fight in front of the hometown fans, my family and my friends. They have always been there for me so its nice to be able to fight in front of them. I haven't heard when my next fight is taking place but hopefully its soon," Caballero told us on The Boxing Lab.
