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.
