The pride of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Fidel Maldonado Jr. (16-2, 13 KO's) is a hard-hitting prospect that always gives the fans an exciting fight. After suffering the only two losses of his professional career in 2012 against Fernando Carcamo and Michael Perez, the 22-year-old roared back, winning three straight, including knockouts over Jorge Romero and Abraham Osuna. Now back in business at 140 pounds, Maldonado Jr. will showcase his talent on the national stage this November.

Twenty-five-year-old Santa Ana, Calif. product Luis Ramos Jr. (23-1, 10 KO's) quickly rose to the top of the boxing world with wins over Francisco Lorenzo, Ray Beltran and Noe Bolanos, then he suffered his only blemish on his record when a controversial cut caused him to lose to former Olympian Ricardo Williams Jr. in Dec. of 2012. Now fully healed and ready to fight again, Ramos Jr. will look to regain his status at 140 pounds with a big win over Maldonado Jr.

A full card will be announced shortly.
