Randy “El Matador” Caballero suffered an ankle injury during training camp according to the Golden Boy Boxing press release and will not be able to defend his IBF Bantamweight World Title scheduled for Feb. 27 at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino.
A source close to the fighter tells News Channel 3/CBS Local 2 that Randy has a cyst in his right leg that will be examined later this week and that is preventing Randy from fighting.
On the casino’s website they stated the Feb. 27 event will proceed as scheduled, with a new main event to be announced shortly and a full card of exciting fighters featured on the live FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes telecast, from Fantasy Springs Resort Casino.
“I was very excited to bring my first title defense to my hometown for all my fans, friends and family who have been on this journey with me from the beginning,” said Randy Caballero. “I am devastated that this injury is stopping me from continuing this journey; however I expect to make a full recovery from surgery and will be ready to face any opponent that wants to stand in my way. I promise my fans that I will back and better than ever!”
