Antonio Escalante, Rocky Juarez Clash on October 27th

LOS ANGELES - It will be High Noon in San Antonio on Saturday, October 27, when hard-hitting Antonio Escalante and perennial contender Rocky Juarez engage in an all-Texas shootout that will headline TeleFutura's "Sólo Boxeo Tecate" from the Freeman Coliseum.

Escalante vs. Juarez, a 10-round junior lightweight bout, is promoted by Golden Boy Promotions and Leija & Battah Promotions and sponsored by Cerveza Tecate and DeWalt Tools. On fight night, doors will open at 6:00 p.m., the first bell rings at 6:30 p.m. and the TeleFutura broadcast begins at 12:00 a.m. ET / 11:00 p.m. PT.

Tickets, priced at $125, $100, $75, $45 and $20 are available for purchase at all Ticketmaster outlets, online at www.ticketmaster.com and via Ticketmaster charge-by-phone lines at (800) 745-3000.

A native of Juarez, Mexico who has become the pride of his adopted hometown of El Paso, Texas, 27-year-old Antonio Escalante (27-4, 19 KO's) is in the midst of one of the best hot streaks of his career, having scored four consecutive knockout victories in the last 12 months. A former NABO super bantamweight champion with world title ambitions, Escalante has taken out Leonilo Miranda and then unbeaten Jose Camacho in his last two fights, but a win over Rocky Juarez will be a major statement to the 130-pound weight class.

There is perhaps no one in the 130-pound division that has faced the level of competition that Houston's Rocky Juarez has faced over the course of a career that began in 2001 after he won a silver medal in the 2000 Sydney Olympics. From Marco Antonio Barrera and Juan Manuel Marquez to Jorge Barrios and Chris John, the 32-year-old Juarez (28-10-1, 20 KO's) has faced them all, and this all-action battler knows that he has the experience cool off Escalante's hot streak on October 27.
