BoxingScene.om has been advised that Top Rank will stage events on December 6th and December 7th shows in Las Vegas, in additional to the December 8th HBO pay-per-view showdown between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez that takes place at the MGM Grand.
ESPN will broadcast the show on December 6th, with lightweight Ray Beltran (26-6, 17KOs) on top and heavyweight prospect Andy Ruiz (16-0, 10KOs) opening up the televised portion of the show. And the broadcast will also have the pro debut of Puerto Rican Olympian Felix Verdejo.
The show on the December 7th will be broadcast by TV Azteca, with Diego Magdaleno (23-0, 9KOs) on top and super featherweight contender Jose Felix Jr. (21-0-1, 17KOs) on the undercard - and potentially the second pro fight of hot Mexican Olympian Oscar Valdez.
