Randy Caballero vs. Jesus Ruiz Now Has NABF Title at Stake

LOS ANGELES - The first card for the Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN series just got even bigger with undefeated former IBF Bantamweight World Champion Randy "El Matador" Caballero (23-0, 14 KOs) now set to compete against Jesus "Estrella" Ruiz (35-7-5, 24 KOs) of Nogales, Mexico in a 10-round bout for the vacant NABF Super Bantamweight title.

Caballero will find a strong challenge in the battle-tested contender Ruiz who has squared off with the likes of world champion Leo "El Terremoto" Santa Cruz and Diego De La Hoya.
 
Caballero vs. Ruiz will serve as the chief support to the highly anticipated main event between Irish amateur standout and middleweight contender Jason "El Animal" Quigley (12-0, 10 KOs) and the hard-punching Glen "Jersey Boy" Tapia (23-3, 15 KOs), airing live on ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes from Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California starting at 10:00 p.m. EST/7:00 p.m. PST.
