Carlos Gomez recently had the opportunity to speak with Golden Boy Promotions Nicaraguan-American, un-defeated (13-0, 7 k.o.’s) prospect and WBC, Youth Inter-Continental Super Bantamweight Champion Randy “El Matador” Caballero.
Below is a Question and Answer session with Carlos Gomez
Gomez: Thank you for taking time from your training schedule to speak with us and talk to us about your up and coming fight with Jose Luis “Tapitas” Araiza (29-5-1, 20 ko’s).
Q: How is your training going?
A: “I’m feeling the urgency of now to diligently prepare for my March 16th fight at Fantasy Springs Casino in front of my home crowd. I am training very hard, sparring with a great group of guys that keep me focused and sharp. I feel that the sparring I’ve done in the past with Nonito Donaire (WBO Super Bantamweight Champ., “The Filipino Flash”, 28-1-0, 18 ko’s) has added a great deal of experience to my boxing style.”
Q: Give us some in-sight as to your up bringing in the Caballero family. What was that like?
A: “The Caballero family consists of three siblings; I have one older brother and two younger brothers. My family is rooted in boxing as my father was a fighter and my older brother was too. As you can imagine, our evenings would include many living room sibling fights. My family is the core, support and inspiration since my first fight at eight years old. They will be my titanium spine of support. Dad has taught me everything I know. No family is perfect...however, we are a tight knit family and part of our family values consist of hard-work ethic, working out to stay strong and healthy; An attitude and demeanor to never give up, never surrender!...Persistence and respect are huge morals and values in my life and in the Caballero family.”
