According to Top Rank's VP, Carl Morretti, junior welterweight Mike Alvarado (32-0, 23KOs) will face Mauricio Herrera (18-1, 7KOs) on April 14th at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Alvarado-Herrera will open up the HBO broadcast, with lightweights Brandon Rios and Yuriokris Gamboa trading big punches in the televised main event.
