By Ryan Burton
 
BoxingScene.com has been advised that Diego and Jesse Magdaleno, who are two of Top Rank's brightest prospects, will make their returns to the ring this fall.  Jesse returns on October 1st in a six round fight against an opponent to be determined on a show that is being co-promoted by Top Rank and Teiken Promotions.  The fight will air in the United States on the "Top Rank Live" series that is broadcast by Fox Sports.  The fight card, which commemorates Teiken's 20 year anniversary, will also be broadcast in Japan.
 
The headliner on the card is Toshiaki Nishioka's defense of his WBC super bantamweight title versus former two division champion Rafael Marquez.  Rounding out the televised portion of the card will be Yoshihiro Kamegai taking a step up in class against veteran contender Jesus Soto Karass and WBA junior flyweight champion Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez versus an opponent to be determined.  It will be the U.S debut for both Kamegai and Gonzalez.
 
Diego Magdaleno is scheduled to return to the ring on November 11th on the eve of the Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez trilogy fight that takes place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV.  The native Las Vegan's fight will take place in a ballroom at either the MGM Grand or at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino and will also be televised by Fox Sports.  Filipino prospect Mercito Gesta is also scheduled to appear on the card.   Gesta and Magdaleno's opponents haven't been named yet.
