Exciting welterweight Ryan “Cowboy” Karl competes in an eight-round bout while unbeaten Leduan Barthelemy will take on Mexico’s Jose Cayetano in an eight-round lightweight fight as part of an exciting undercard lineup Sunday, June 23 from Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

The main event is headlined by former champion Jermell Charlo battling Mexico’s Jorge Cota in a super welterweight attraction that serves as the main event of FOX PBC Fight Night on FOX and FOX Deportes (8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT).

A 27-year-old from Houston, Karl (16-2, 10 KOs) avenged a loss to Kevin Watts in his last fight by stopping him in the fifth round of their January rematch. Karl had put together back-to-back wins before the pair of matches against Watts.

The younger brother of two-division champion Rances and Olympic gold medalist Yan, Barthelemy (14-0-1, 7 KOs) most recently outpointed Miguel Aispuro in March after a draw in September against unbeaten Eduardo Ramirez. The 29-year-old from Cuba now lives and trains in Las Vegas as he prepares to face the 32-year-old (21-6, 10 KOs) from Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. Cayetano

Taylor, in his last bout, won a unanimous decision against Sanjarbek Rakhmanov in Las Vegas last August.
