Camps for unbeaten prospects Hugo Centeno Jr. and Domonique Dolton have confirmed plans for a head-on collision, which will take place June 6 at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California.

The bout, once finalized, will come at a catchweight somewhere between 156-157 lb. and served as the headliner on Showtime’s ‘Shobox’ series. 

“This is a stern test for Hugo,” noted Joel de la Hoya, Centeno’s manager. “We were looking at a few fighters for this date. When those fell through and Dolton’s name was mentioned, we pursued it.” 

Neither fighter has yet to appear in the ring in 2014. Centeno Jr. (20-0-0-1NC, 11KO) survived rough waters towards the end of 2013, suffering an early cut leading to a No-Contest versus unbeaten Julian Williams last September, and climbing off the canvas to stop Angel Osuna in 10 rounds last December.

Dolton (14-0, 8KO) hasn’t fought since a 5th round knockout win over Basilio Silva in the Dominican Republic last May. The unbeaten 24-year old from Detroit hoped for a career turnaround after signing with Acquinity Sports, but wasn’t around by the time the company formed into Iron Mike Productions. 

A promotional free agent, Dolton signed with manager Jose Nunez earlier this year, with the marching orders to seek the toughest challenges possible to help accelerate his career.

“This is the type of fight Domonique wanted me to go get when I signed him,” Nunez said. “I’m thrilled that his first fight with me will come on a great platform like Shobox. He’s got a tough test ahead of him with (Centeno Jr.), but I have no question my kid will come out on top.”
