Cancio (16-3-2, 12 KOs) knocked out former fringe contender Rene Alvarado in his last bout on December 18, also in Indio, Calif.

The 27-year-old Cancio, who is 2-2 in his last four bouts, is trained by Danny Garcia at Knuckleheadz Gym in Ventura, Calif.

Cazares (40-8-2, 27 KOs) last fought in April of 2012, when he was knocked out in the second round by Carl Frampton. The loss snapped a five-bout winning streak.

Cazares’ best days as a pro were between 2005 and 2011, when he won world title belts in two different weight classes (light flyweight and junior bantamweight).

The Los Mochis, Sinaloa resident has mostly campaigned in the junior featherweight division over the three-four years.

Cazares has been through the mill. I guess he still has to work. "He invested his money in fine women and fast cars, and the rest he squandered foolishly."
