Standout super bantamweight prospect Randy Caballero cruised to victory with an eight-round shutout over Arturo Santiago at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indo, California.

Scores were 80-70 across the board in their Galavision Solo Boxeo –televised main event. 

Caballero was in complete control throughout the evening, using his superior reach and overall skill level to keep Santiago at his desired distance. Santiago had his moments in the fight, including a competitive fourth round, but seemed more intent on frustrating the young prospect more so than actually trying to beat him.

The strategy miserably backfired and nearly got him disqualified. A point was deducted from Santiago’s tally in the third round for excessive holding behind the head. Ironically, the same tactic later in the round resulted in Caballero freeing himself and scoring with a multi-punch combination upstairs that had Santiago reeling.

Another point was deducted in a rough and tumble sixth round. Caballero was again landing without anything significant coming back in return. When Santiago failed to successfully clinch his way out of trouble, he sought the exit. Caballero attempted to work the body, and was met with a headlock before Santiago drove him to the canvas.

Referee Raul Caiz expressed his disgust over the tactic and warned Santiago that the next instance would get him tossed.

Santiago behaved himself from that point onward, but merely served as target practice for Caballero for the remainder of the bout.

Caballero improves to 13-0 (7KO) with the win, his seventh of 2011 and all coming at the Fantasy Springs Casino, not very far from his hometown of Coachella. The 21-year old is becoming a considerable draw in the area and rapidly developing a reputation as one of the hottest prospects in the game today.

Santiago did next to nothing to disprove that theory. The Puerto Rican heads home with his fourth loss in five fights as he falls to 7-4-1 (4KO).

In the televised co-feature, Andrew Cancio rallied back from an early deficit to outpoint Fernando Carcamo in a nail-biter. Scores were 75-75 even and 76-74 (twice) in favor of Cancio, who scored two knockdowns in the eighth and final round of a fight in which he was in danger of losing. 

Carcamo boxed well for most of the fight, but ran out of gas and punch resistance. The Mexican tried to hang on, but wound up on the canvas after that strategy failed him. It was wise to go down in order to clear his head, but his inability to fully recover ultimately cost him the fight.

Cancio wins his fourth straight, though it’s his first victory to go to the scorecards as his record improves to 12-1-2 (11KO). Carcamo’s five-fight win streak comes to an end as he falls to 9-3 (6KO).

The two bouts aired live on Galavision, which may or may not signify the start of a new home for the Solo Boxeo Tecate series, which was rumored to move from Telefutura early next year.

Great fight. These guys fought their hearts out, enough to put most high profiled 'prima donnas' to shame.
