Seven bouts are scheduled on the card, headlined by the United States Featherweight Championship fight between undefeated and fourth-ranked Mikey Garcia (20-0) and Texas veteran, Tomas Villa (22-6, Midland), who is ranked 12th. The event will be nationally televised live on Fox Sports Net’s “Top Rank Live.”
In addition to Garcia, Belmontes (11-0, three knockouts) and Lopez (18-0, 15 KOs), undefeated prospects Omar Henry (7-0, Houston), and Mike Alvarado (26-0, Denver) will be featured on the card. Opponents for the undefeated boxers and the remainder of the card are to be announced.
