By Pablo Fletes, notifight.com

Nicaraguan boxer Randy Caballero is going in another direction with respect to his final eliminator for a crack at the bantamweight title of the International Boxing Federation (IBF).

Matchmaker Robert Diaz of Golden Boy Promotions has confirmed that his company has struggled to reach to an agreement with Jamie McDonnell, to face Caballero on April 19 in England.

Apparently, McDonnell is having problems with his handlers and for that reason Golden Boy made a request to the IBF to appoint another highly qualified opponent.

Thus, it was decided that Caballero would face Japanese boxer Kohei Oba in an elimination bout, but no decision has been made on when and where the fight will take place. The winner of this fight would become the mandatory challenger to IBF bantamweight crown, held by the English fighter Stuart Hall.
 
29-year-old Oba has a record of 35-2-1, with 14 knockouts, while Caballero is 20-0, with 12 knockouts.

In the latest rankings by the IBF, McDonnell is ranked third at bantamweight, fourth is Caballero and Oba is fifth.

Been following the kid since his debut (hometown kid). His competition so has been dreadful. He has some boxing skills. He just doesn't have much power or even speed to make up for it, BUT golden boy seems like they wanna manufacture something outta him so who knows?
