Additional unbeaten prospects entering the ring will be Denver’s Shon Mondragón (3-0, 2 KOs) in a six-round super bantamweight fight versus Édgar Joe Cortés (6-5-1) and Baltimore’s Aaron Anderson (5-0, 4 KOs) facing Chicago’s Akeem Black (5-3, 2 KOs) for six rounds of super welterweight action.
A pair of unbeaten bantamweight contenders will look to continue their rise up the rankings in 10 round fights as Ghana’s Duke Micah (22-0, 18 KOs) is set to battle Mexico’s Luis Roy Cruz (12-1, 7 KOs) while the Philippine’s Reymart Gaballo (21-0, 18 KOs) steps in against Colombia’s Yelson Vargas (17-1, 12 KOs).
Rounding out the loaded card is once-beaten Celso Ramírez from Minneapolis in a six-round welterweight fight versus Tyrone Luckey, a highly-touted Cuban amateur who now trains in Minneapolis as David Morrell Jr. makes his pro debut against Yendris Váldez in a six-round super middleweight attraction and unbeaten bantamweight prospect Shawn Simpson from Chicago taking on Mexico’s Samuel Gutiérrez in an eight-round bout.
