July 20, 2013- Randy Caballero took a step closer to a world title shot by annexing the NABO bantamweight title with a KO win over game Puerto Rican  Miguel “Loco” Robles on Saturday night’s Golden Boy Promotions main event at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California.

Local hero, Nicaragua’s Randy Caballero, 19-0 (11), needed to work seven rounds against a comparatively underpowered Robles, 12-3-2 (5). Caballero walked down his opponent and threw single shots while easily absorbing the quick, sharp shots in combination thrown by Robles throughout the bout.

Holding on as the fight went along in the later rounds and sporting a small cut alongside his mouth, Robles made it an entertaining fight. Both men focused on headhunting and largely ignored body work.


A left hand body shot in the seventh doubled the Puerto Rican in his own corner and referee Jack Reiss called the fight at 2:06 of the round as the fighter failed to make it to his feet in time.

In other results, in the most entertaining, show-stealing fight of the Fox Sports Net/Fox Deportes broadcast, super featherweight Eric Ituarte, 5-0-1 (1), and Humberto Zatarain battled to a draw.

Wile pounding each other heavily throughout the entire bout, it seemed Zatarain, 3-1-2, would pull out the decision due to the better quality and more shots landed in the bout. However, the judges all begged to differ, calling the fight a 38-38 draw on all cards.

2012 Olympian, super bantamweight Joseph “JoJo” Diaz Jr., 6-0 (4), went home early after dispatching Luis Cosme, 8-3-1 (3), with a demolishing body shot at 2:09 of the first frame.

Another 2012 Olympian, super lightweight southpaw Errol Spence, 7-0 (6), did away with Eddie Cordova, 4-5-1 (1), with a body shot at 2:13 of the first round of a scheduled six.

Junior middleweight Angel Osuna, 11-3-1 (7), stopped Salt Lake City, Utah’s Christian Nava, 2-4-1, in two rounds of a scheduled six. Going through the paces, the taller, leaner Osuna was caught a few times with wide shots by Nava in the first round.

During an exchange, a hard shot by Osuna busted open Nava upstairs, making it a bloody, messy affair thereafter.

Trying hard to come back from the injury, Nava was caught with a violent shot to the nose, seemingly breaking it. As he dropped to his knees, the fighter would be counted out by referee Jack Reiss at 2:08 of the second round.

In a bout featuring heavyweight debutants, Alex Rivera dropped then stopped C.J. Leveque at 2:07 of the first round in the first bout of the evening.
