Randy Caballero-Jessy Cruz Set For FS1 on Nov. 26

SUNRISE, FLORIDA - One of Southern California's top fistic attractions, unbeaten bantamweight Randy "El Matador" Caballero, will be heading east on Tuesday, Nov. 26, as he makes his Florida debut against local southpaw, Jessy Cruz of Miami in the 10-round co-main event of FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes' Golden Boy Live! at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Fla.

Originally scheduled to compete in the co-main event, undefeated Cuban heavyweight star Luis "El Mercedez" Ortiz will now be moved to a later date to be announced.

"This is only my second fight outside of California and I'm looking forward to putting on a great show for the Florida fans on November 26," said Coachella's Caballero.  "This is a big night for me and I can't wait to get into the ring."

"Caballero is a tough kid and I've watched him on the way up," said Cruz.  "But he's not coming into my house and beating me here.  My trainer Herman Caicedo has prepared me well and I will shock the world when we fight."

Twenty-three-year-old Randy "El Matador" Caballero (19-0, 11 KO's) is a top 118-pound prospect on the verge of making noise on the world stage in the coming year.  Showing off new skills in his fight game with each and every fight, Caballero has added knockout power to his resume in his last three fights, knocking out Rigoberto Casillas, Luis Maldonado and Miguel Robles, the latter victory coming by way of a debilitating body shot in the seventh round.

Following an impressive amateur career that saw him make it to the quarterfinals of the 2006 National Golden Gloves and also compete at the 2008 Olympic trials, Miami's Jessy Cruz (10-5-1, 4 KO's) turned pro in 2008 and after a rough start in his first three years, the thirty-year-old has hit his stride, winning six of his last seven bouts, including three in a row.
