Rising star Ryan Garcia will look to move a step closer to a world title tonight as he takes on Francisco Fonseca in California.
The highly-rated lightweight, 21, will aim to extend his winning record to 20-0 and claim the WBC silver title against former world title challenger Fonseca (25-2-2).
Experienced former world champion Jorge Linares is also in action as he takes on Carlos Morales in a fascinating super lightweight belt.
There are plenty of other rising stars on the biggest card on what is a quiet weekend of boxing before Tyson Fury’s rematch with Deontay Wilder next weekend.
Unbeaten welterweight Alexis Rocha (15-0) takes on Brad Solomon for the WBC Continental Americas title, whilst Blair Cobbs (13-0-1) faces Samuel Kotey Neequaye (23-2) at welterweight.
Ryan Garcia vs Francisco Fonseca is the main event and ringwalks are expected at around 4am UK time.
Linares and Morales will be the chief support, with ringwalks for that bout estimated to take place at 3am UK time.
The card is being shown live on Box Nation in the UK, with coverage starting at 1am.
