RANDY CABALLERO & OMAR FIGUEROA JR. TO HEADLINE MARCH 16

RANDY CABALLERO AND OMAR FIGUEROA JR.

TO  CO-HEADLINE EXCITING NIGHT OF  BOXING

AT  FANTASY SPRINGS RESORT CASINO ON MARCH 16

LOS ANGELES, February 16 – 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. For
