Jose Miguel Borrego in action on Quillin-Truax card

Super lightweight Jose Miguel Borrego (14-2, 13 KOs) back in action Saturday, April 13 from The Armory in Minneapolis in a 10-round attraction. He’ll be looking to rebound after being defeated by Cameron Krael last September as he takes on Hector Ruben Ambriz Suarez who is 0-5-1 in his last 6 fights.

Headlining the undercard action is unbeaten Chris Colbert as he will square off against Mexico’s Mario Briones in a 10-round lightweight match. These fights are being bought by Premier Boxing Champions Prelims on FS2 and FOX Deportes and begin at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT

Undefeated prospect Joey Spencer (6-0, 6 KOs) will step into the ring for a six-round super welterweight bout that will kick off the PBC on FS1 main card at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT. The event is headlined by former world champions Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin and Minnesota-native Caleb “Golden” Truax battling in a 12-round IBF super middleweight title eliminator, and also features top middleweight contender Sergiy Derevyanchenko taking on Jack Culcay in a 12-round IBF title eliminator.

Rounding out the rest of the card in non-televised action will see unbeaten Darwin Price (13-0, 6 KOs) facing Los Angeles-native Yakubu Amidu (21-9-2, 19 KOs) in an eight-round welterweight attraction, Minneapolis-native VeShawn Owens (9-2, 9 KOs) taking on Texas’ Alexis Gaytan (5-2, 2 KOs) for eight rounds of welterweight action and undefeated bantamweight Shawn Simpson (9-0, 3 KOs) in an eight-round bantamweight showdown against Mexico’s Gilberto Mendoza (12-7-2, 4 KOs).

St. Petersburg, Florida-native Mycheal Teal in a four-round middleweight contest against Antonio Louis Hernandez and undefeated Uriel Lara out of Coon, Rapids, Minnesota facing Jeremiah De Los Santos for four-rounds of welterweight action.

Representing his hometown of Brooklyn, N.Y., Colbert (10-0, 3 KOs) has begun to make a name for himself showing off tremendous skills across his first 10 pro victories. The 22-year-old most recently dominated Josh Hernandez in January on the Thurman-Lopez card and he will return to fight at The Armory for the second time after defeating then-unbeaten Austin Dulay last April. 33-year-old Briones (29-8-2, 21 KOs) fights out of Aguascalientes, Mexico and most recently fought former champion Scott Quigg in October.
