Ed “The Lion” Paredes has a new opponent for the November 30 show in Sunrise, Florida. The welterweight contender will now face battle-tested veteran Hector Munoz of Mexico, in a supporting bout to the 140 lb. title fight between Joan Guzman and Khabib Allakhverdiev.

Paredes (31-3-1, 21KO) was originally scheduled to face Javier Castro, a career 140 lb. fighter coming off of consecutive losses, including last month’s upset to a sub .500 clubfighter in Mexico.

Munoz (20-8-1, 13KO) has spent the majority of his career at and above the welterweight limit and is generally known to give rising contenders a tough night’s work. The 34-year old is coming off of an eight-round points loss to unbeaten welterweight Brad Solomon this past July.

It’s not immediately known whether the fight will make its way to network coverage. The televised portion of the show airs live on Pursuit TV and Bounce TV, a rare simultaneous boxing broadcast between two U.S. stations. The card makes history of its own, with a hip-hop concert featuring Flo-Rida and several other major artists immediately following the boxing portion of the evening.

Paredes has been on a heck of a roll, going unbeaten in 11 straight fights (10-0-1, 8KO) since losing a 10-round decision in to current Top 10 154 lb. contender Carlos Molina in April ‘09. The run has bolstered his ratings among the alphabets, as he is ranked among all four major sanctioning bodies in the welterweight division.

The lone hiccup along his current run was a 10-round draw with then-unbeaten Joey Hernandez in Aug. ’09. Paredes savagely settled the score six months later, knocking Hernandez out in two rounds on a nationally televised ESPN2 Friday Night Fights show. The unbeaten streak began by revisiting past demons, scoring a points win over Gilberto Venegas to avenge a knockout loss two years prior.

Paredes has also scored five straight knockouts entering his next bout. His last win came this past July, stopping former 140 lb. titlist Vivian Harris in 10 rounds.  The bout was his third since signing with Acquinity Sports late last year, with all three fights taking place in his adopted hometown of Hollywood, Florida.
