LOS ANGELES - SHOWTIME EXTREME will bring some exciting undercard action home to fight fans on Saturday, June 23 when it televises two live co-featured undercard fights from Los Angeles' STAPLES Center beginning at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast).

In the featured SHOWTIME EXTREME fight scheduled for 10 rounds in the junior middleweight division, undefeated Jermell Charlo faces off against fellow prospect Denis Douglin of New Jersey. Plus, unbeaten Texas knockout artist Omar Figueroa seeks another victory when he battles Mexico's Alain Hernandez in an eight-round super lightweight matchup.

"Ortiz vs. Lopez," a 12-round fight for the vacant WBC Silver Welterweight Championship taking place Saturday, June 23, at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, Calif., is promoted by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Goossen Tutor Promotions and Thompson Boxing Promotions and sponsored by Corona, DeWalt Tools and AT&T. The co-feature will see former Three-Division World Champion Humberto "Zorrita" Soto battle Argentinean knockout artist Lucas Matthysse in a 12-round fight for the vacant WBC Continental Americas Super Lightweight title which is presented in association with Baja Boxing Promotions and Arano Box Promotions. The SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING doubleheader begins live at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast) with preliminary fights airing on SHOWTIME EXTREME at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast).

Tickets priced at $250, $150, $100 and $50 are available online at www.staplescenter.com , www.ticketmaster.com , via Ticketmaster charge-by-phone lines at (800)745-3000 or at STAPLES Center box office.

Houston's Jermell "Iron Man" Charlo (17-0, 8 KO's) has long been considered a promising up and comer in the junior middleweight division, and beginning in late 2010 and continuing in 2011, the former amateur star began making a lot of noise with wins over Luis Grajeda, Larry Smith and Francisco Santana. In March of 2012, a third round technical knockout over highly-regarded Chris Chatman got even more people talking and this weekend, he aims to make another statement by beating Denis Douglin.

Proudly nicknamed "Momma's Boy" because his mother Saphya is his trainer, Marlboro, New Jersey's Denis Douglin (14-1, 8 KO's) is a respected east coast prospect looking to introduce himself to west coast fight fans. The 24-year-old has gone 2-0 since an upset loss to Doel Carrasquillo in February of 2011 including an eight round win over previously unbeaten Steve Martinez in January in his last outing.

Currently riding a five fight knockout streak that includes four finishes in two rounds or less, Omar "Panterita" Figueroa (17-0-1, 14 KO's) has been staying busy and wrecking anyone who dares to stand and trade with him. Getting ready for his fifth fight of 2012, the 22-year-old from Weslaco, Texas has every intention of making it another short night's work when he meets up with Tijuana's Alain Hernandez (18-10-2, 10 KO's). The 33-year-old Hernandez is a 10-year-professional who has been in with former World Champion Paul Spadafora and he has every intention of putting a stop to Figueroa's meteoric rise on Saturday.

A bout scheduled for four rounds in the featherweight division will see Los Angeles' Julian Ramirez (2-0, 2 KO's), the nephew of the late Genaro "Chicanito" Hernandez, stepping into the ring for the third time as a professional against Santa Ana's Israel Navarrete (6-4, 1 KO) which, time permitting, will be televised on SHOWTIME EXTREME.

In off-television action, Coachella, Calif. favorite Randy Caballero (14-0, 7 KO's) will make his second start of 2012 in an eight round fight against St. Louis' Jamal Parram (5-5-1, 4 KO's). The 21-year-old Caballero is coming off of a 10-round unanimous decision victory over Jose Luis Araiza in March that earned him the NABO bantamweight title and he's looking forward to scoring another big win on Saturday against the hard-hitting Parram.

Opening up the night of boxing is Pahrump, Nevada's Michael Finney (8-0, 7 KO's) who takes on Joel Vargas (3-6-1, 3KO's) of Durango, Mexico in a four round junior middleweight fight. Finney is making his second appearance of 2012 following a six-round win in January over heavy hitter Hector Orozco.
