Perez-Zuniga For FS1 Card, Carlos Molina Withdraws

BROOKLYN  - With Carlos Molina forced to withdraw from his Monday, September 30 bout against Michael "The Artist" Perez due to flu-like symptoms, tough Mexican prospect Miguel "Dinamita" Zuniga will step up to face "The Artist" in a 10-round fight for the vacant WBA Fedelatin Super Lightweight Title at the Cushman & Wakefield Theater at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY in the Golden Boy Live! co-featured event on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes.

In the main event, Brooklyn's undefeated welterweight and 2008 U.S. Olympian Sadam "World Kid" Ali takes on "Smokin" Jay Krupp in an eight-round matchup.

Plus, 2012 U.S. Olympian "Sir" Marcus Browne of Staten Island, fellow Olympic team member Jamel Herring of Coram, NY, The Bronx's Emmanuel Gonzalez, Brooklyn's Claude Staten Jr. and Maryland's D'Mitrius Ballard will all be in action to help Barclays Center celebrate its one-year anniversary.

Newark's Michael "The Artist" Perez (18-1-2, 10 KO's) is unbeaten in five of his last six bouts with the only loss to recently crowned World Champion Omar "Panterita" Figueroa Jr. and a technical draw with Lonnie Smith due to a cut from a clash of heads. Unbeaten in New York, Perez hopes to keep the streak going on September 30.

A native of Tijuana now fighting out of San Diego, 26-year-old Miguel "Dinamita" Zuniga (13-2, 8 KO's) has won four of his last five bouts, with his only loss in that stretch coming against unbeaten hot prospect Daquan Arnett. Zuniga has the opportunity to make a name for himself by defeating Perez, his highly respected foe, on national television.

Unbeaten as a professional, Staten Island's "Sir" Marcus Browne (6-0, 6 KO's) has made a seamless adjustment from the amateurs to the pros. Fresh from a knockout victory over Robert Hill on the first Golden Boy Live! card on August 19, the 22-year-old will take on Lamont Williams in his fourth appearance at Barclays Center in a six round televised light heavyweight fight.

Gardena, California's Lamont Williams (5-1-1, 2 KO's) has rebounded from a 1-1 start to his career to go unbeaten in his next five bouts, leading him to the biggest fight of his career against Browne. To win, the 33-year-old will have to be firing on all cylinders, but with high risk always comes a high reward as he looks to upset the hometown fan favorite.

In a featherweight swing bout scheduled for four or six rounds, The Bronx' Emmanuel Gonzalez (12-0, 7 KO's) is back in action, looking to follow up his Golden Boy Live! debut win over Michael Doyle in August with a victory over fellow unbeaten Noel Echevarria (11-0, 6 KO's) of Guayama, Puerto Rico.

Rounding out the card will be Brooklyn's Claude Staten Jr. (1-0) who will return to Barclays Center to face Philadelphia's Derrick Bivins (1-1-1) in a four-round super bantamweight bout, highly-regarded super middleweight D'Mitrius Ballard (2-0, 2 KO's) of Temple Hills, Maryland battles Lynchburg, Virginia's Jess Noriega (2-5, 2 KO's) in a four-round contest and in the six-round super lightweight opener, 2012 U.S. Olympian Jamel Herring (4-0, 2 KO's) of Coram, NY hopes to keep his unbeaten streak going against Springfield, Illinois' Justin Robbins (2-3, 1 KO).

Ali vs. Krupp is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and sponsored by Corona and O'Reilly Auto Parts. Barclays Center doors open at 7:00 p.m. ET with the first bell sounding at 7:45 p.m. ET. The FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes broadcast airs live at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT.
