LOS ANGELES - Independence Day weekend will get off to an explosive start at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California on Friday, July 1, when two of boxing's rising stars - Frankie Gomez and Randy Caballero - enter the ring in a quest to keep their unbeaten records intact against upset-minded foes.

In the main event of TeleFutura's "Sσlo Boxeo Tecate" broadcast, East Los Angeles' Gomez takes on Kadaphi Proctor in an eight round junior welterweight bout.  The evening's co-featured bout will see Fantasy Springs favorite Caballero battle fellow unbeaten Alexis Santiago in an eight round matchup for the vacant WBC intercontinental youth super bantamweight title.

This night of world-class professional boxing is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and is sponsored by Cerveza Tecate, DeWalt Tools and AT&T.  Doors open at 6:00pm PT on fight night and the first bell rings at 7:30pm PT.  The TeleFutura broadcast begins at 11:30pm ET / PT (10:30pm CT).

Fans at home can also be part of the action by participating in Cinturσn Tecate and voting for the fighter in the main event who displayed the most character in the ring by sending a text message to 55333. Voting will be open through the end of the weekend.

Tickets, priced at $25, $35 and $45 are on sale now and available for purchase at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, by calling (800) 827-2946 or online at www.fantasyspringsresort.com.  Active or retired armed forces members who show their military ID at the Fantasy Springs Box Office on or before July 1 will receive a $5 discount.

It's hard to believe, but 19-year-old Frankie Gomez (9-0, 7 KO's) is already entering his second year as a professional boxer.  With wins in all nine of his bouts and rave reviews coming from all corners, it's easy to forget how young he is.  The East Los Angeles native isn't about to slow down, and after a 25 second knockout of Jason Davis in his most recent bout in April, he's showing that he's ready for all comers.

Hesperia's 26-year-old Kadaphi Proctor (7-5-1) rebounded from some early bumps in the road during his four-year career to win his last three bouts.  Most important was his last victory, a six round win over unbeaten Stan Martyniouk that saw him drop the highly-touted prospect three times en route to the upset.  On July 1, he will look to show that lightning can strike twice.

Undefeated in six fights at Fantasy Springs, Coachella's Randy Caballero (11-0, 7 KO's) has repeatedly packed the venue with fans eager to see his heavy hands at work.  At just 20 years old, he's fighting for his first title and, with a three fight knockout streak going with wins over Felix Perez, Francis Ruiz and Sergio Cristobal, he's aiming to make Alexis Santiago his next knockout victim.

20 years old and unbeaten like his July 1opponent, Phoenix's Alexis Santiago (7-0-1, 2 KO's) wants to separate himself from the pack by scoring a big win over Caballero on national television.  A professional since 2009, Santiago has impressive skills and speed in the ring and he's aware that he'll need his full tool set to turn back Caballero in their eagerly-anticipated title fight.
