Randy Caballero, Omar Figueroa To Co-Headline on 3/16

LOS ANGELES - Unbeaten junior featherweight Randy Caballero is the hottest thing to hit the Southern California fight scene in years and Texas' Omar Figueroa Jr. is coming off of the defining fight of his undefeated career. Together they will co-headline an exciting night of world class professional boxing presented by Golden Boy Promotions at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif. on Friday, March 16 that is a must-see for all boxing fans.

In the 10 round main event, Coachella's local hero Caballero, who is 8-0 at his home away from home at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino, will face an opponent to be determined as he defends his WBC Youth Intercontinental super bantamweight title.

In the co-main event, Weslaco's Figueroa, who is fresh off of a January 6 fight at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in which he handed rising star Michael Perez his first loss, will take on Mexico's Ramon Ayala in a 10 round battle for Figueroa's WBO Intercontinental Youth lightweight title.

Tickets, priced at $25, $35 and $45, are on sale now and available for purchase at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, by calling (800) 827-2946 or online at www.fantasyspringsresort.com . Doors at Fantasy Springs will open at 6:00 p.m. PT on fight night and the first bell rings at 6:30 p.m. PT.

The favorite boxing son of Fantasy Springs Resort Casino, where he has won his last seven consecutive bouts (and eight overall), 21-year-old Randy Caballero (13-0, 7 KO's) has built a sizable local following that gives him an extra jolt of energy every time he fights. In July of 2011, the two-year professional won the vacant WBC Youth Intercontinental super bantamweight title with a near-shutout of then 8-0-1 Alexis Santiago and has defended his title once, shutting down Arturo Santiago over eight rounds last December.

When you've ended eight of your wins in two rounds or less, it's clear that you have the kind of power to draw attention from boxing experts and fans alike. Yet while Omar Figueroa Jr. (14-0-1, 11 KO's) has been on the boxing world's radar for a couple of years, it wasn't until January 6 that everyone got a true dose of the potential that the 22-year-old "Panterita" possesses. It was on that night earlier this year that Figueroa stopped unbeaten and highly regarded fellow prospect Michael "The Artist" Perez in six rounds in the same building in which he will fight on March 16 and the Texan expects the same result against Ramon Ayala.

A respected amateur who is now soaring towards the top of the lightweight division, Ramon "Nino De Oro" Ayala (23-2-1, 11 KO's) has done a lot of fighting for someone just 23-years-old, but it's that experience which he expects to lead him to victory when he battles Omar Figueroa in March. Winner of five in a row, including three by knockout, the former WBC Youth junior welterweight champion has the style, desire and skill to give anyone problems in the ring and that's just what he's planning on doing to Figueroa on March 16.

Caballero's opponent and a full lineup of undercard fights will be announced shortly.
