Randy Caballero Injured Withdraws from Bout vs. Oscar Negrete
Undefeated NABF Super Bantamweight Champion Randy "El Matador" Caballero (24-0, 14 KOs) of Coachella, California has sustained an injury to his right ankle in training camp and regretfully has been forced to withdraw from his upcoming 10-round, headlining bout and first title defense against Oscar " El Jaguar" Negrete (16-0, 6 KOs) for the June 30 edition of Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN.
"I want to apologize to my opponent, Oscar Negrete, and to all my fans who really wanted to watch this fight," said Randy Caballero. "With all that has happened in my career, I didn't want to risk an ankle injury hurting my entire career. I am sure that once my ankle heals and with the support of all my fans, I will be back at 100 percent."
The card will still take place on June 30 at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino and Golden Boy Promotions will now feature Negrete versus experienced contender Jesus "Estrella" Ruiz(35-8-5, 24 KOs) for a 10-round bantamweight main event for the vacant NABF Bantamweight title.
