Randy Caballero Ready For Kohei Oba IBF Eliminator

JAPAN - Unbeaten as a professional and one of the most respected young fighters in boxing today, Coachella, California's Randy "El Matador" Caballero will get his chance to move one step closer to a world championship when he travels to Kobe, Japan to fight Kohei Oba at Sambo Hall in a 12-round locally televised IBF Bantamweight Title Elimination bout on Friday, April 4.

"This is the fight I've been waiting for, and after beating Oba, I'll get my title shot," said Caballero. "I'm not concerned about the travel time it took for me to get to Japan or any scoring issues; I'm trained to dominate, and I won't leave any doubts this Friday, April 4."

Just 23-years-old, Randy "El Matador" Caballero (20-0, 12 KOs) has the maturity of a seasoned veteran in the ring, and an impressive skill set, which is why its no surprise that he's one win away from a world title shot. A California fan favorite, the number four-ranked contender has added power to his game in recent months, winning his last four bouts by knockout. This Friday, April 4, he fights for the first time outside of the United States when he faces the veteran Oba.

Ranked fifth in the world by the IBF, Japanese bantamweight champion Kohei Oba (35-2-1, 14 KOs) wants to add more hardware to his trophy case, but he'll have to get past Caballero to do so. A professional since 2002, the 29-year-old has made a steady climb to the top, and with a 9-0 record in Japanese title fights, he has the skills and experience to take Caballero to places the American has never seen in the ring before.
