Top Rank brings back boxing to Hawaiian Gardens, as a trio of top contenders, along with the highly awaited debut of 2012 Olympian Esquiva Falcao in a show presented by Tecate and Unimas.

The featured fight of the evening will see the high octane former WBO Super Featherweight title challenger and current NABF champion Diego Magdaleno 24-1, (9KO's) hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada.

The southpaw speedster will be facing Guamuchil, Mexico's own, Jorge Pazos 14-6-1 (8KO's) in a ten round Lightweight bout.

Magdaleno will be looking to impress once more, as the fighter is on the title hunt and is coming off an impressive win over tough-as-nails Edgar Riovalle at the Stub Hub Center in September of last year.

Diego Magdaleno's younger sibling, KO artist, and fellow southpaw, Jessie Magdaleno will be taking on battle-tested, Mexicali, Mexico's Roberto Castaneda 20-5-1, (15KO's) in an eight round Super Bantamweight fight in the co-featured bout.

Magdaleno is on the fast track for a world title shot, having stopped 13 of his 17 opponents, all inside four rounds.


In a highly looked upon bout and Top Rank's newest acquisition, 2012 Brazilian Olympian, Esquiva Falcao will be making his pro debut in a six round scheduled Super Middleweight bout, facing Lynchburg, Virginia's Joshua Robertson 5-4 (1KO)

Falcao won the silver medal at the 2012 London Olympics, just falling short of winning the gold. Falcao lost the gold medal match 14-13 to Japan's Ryota Murata who also boxes for Top Rank.

Fan favorite, never in a dull fight, Riverside, California's favorite son Saul ''Dinamita'' Rodriguez 11-0-1, (8KO's) who makes a habit of scoring highlight reel-type KO's will face an opponent TBA in another featured scheduled six round fight

Light Heavyweight, Trevor McCumby 13-0, (10KO's) who stole the show at the same venue in his war against Ricardo Campillo, will be taking on another big hitter in Chris Eppley 10-3, (9KO's) in a bout
scheduled for six rounds.

Hollywood, California's Sukhrab Shidaev 10-0, (7KO's) faces Las Vegan Yosmani Abreu 4-7-2 in a six round Lightweight bout.
