Randy Caballero looking to make title fight with Stuart Hall as soon as possible

Tom Casino/SHOWTIME

Randy Caballero's trip to Japan was successful, and now he's looking to pounce on an IBF bantamweight title opportunity.

Randy Caballero went to Japan this past weekend for an IBF bantamweight title eliminator, dominating the action and stopping Kohei Oba at 1:54 of the eighth round, leading on the scorecards at the time of stoppage 70-61, 69-63, and 69-63.

With his title shot secured, Caballero (21-0, 13 KO) and Golden Boy Promotions are looking to make his fight with IBF titleholder Stuart Hall as soon as they can.

"This was a big win for me, and I thank my team, my promoter, and my friends, family, and fans for all their support," said the 23-year-old Caballero. "I didn't care where the fight was, I was going to win and leave no doubts. Now it's on to a world title fight, and I can't wait for my shot at Stuart Hall."

"A true world champion can fight anywhere they set up a ring, and by going to Japan and beating Kohei Oba, Randy Caballero proved that he's ready for that next step," said Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer. "We're proud of Randy for this huge victory, and we're ready to make a fight with Stuart Hall for the IBF title as soon as possible."

Hall (16-2-2, 7 KO) won the vacant IBF belt against Vusi Malinga in December, and had a title defense on March 29 that ultimately went nowhere, as his bout with Martin Ward was stopped in round two due to a clash of heads that opened up Ward in round two, leading to an early technical draw.
