New opponents have named for Miguel Beltran and Raul Hirales, who both return this Saturday night at the Arena Tecate in Tijuana, Mexico. Hirales (20-2-1 , 9 KOs) was going to face Puerto Rican slugger Jonathan Oquendo (23-3, 16 KOs), and "Barreterito" Beltran (28-2 , 18 KOs) was set to face Puerto Rican puncher Jose "Chelo" Gonzalez (22-1 , 17 KOs) - but those two fights fell through as agreements were not finalized in time.
Instead, Beltran (28-2 , 18 KOs) will now go against undefeated super featherweight Carlos "Chuko" Diaz ( 12-0, 6 KOs). And Hirales is now going up against Fernando "Ferocito" Vargas (26-7-3, 18 KOs), who fought to a six round majority draw in 2010.
