Bernard Hopkins vs. Joe Smith Jr. Undercard Set Down

LOS ANGELES - Rounding out a stacked card featuring boxing legend Bernard "The Executioner" Hopkins, undefeated featherweight contender Joseph "JoJo" Diaz, Jr. and WBO Cruiserweight World Champion Oleksander Usyk, several red-hot prospects in the Golden Boy Promotions stable will look to move to the next level on December 17 at the "Fabulous" Forum in Inglewood, California.
 
Tickets for these action-packed fights are already on sale and available at Ticketmaster and the Forum Box Office.
 
"There is no promotional company with a deeper stable of prospects than Golden Boy Promotions, and fans are going to see a slew of them on the December 17 card," said company CEO and Chairman Oscar De La Hoya. "I am confident that multiple future world champions are on this card; fans should come to the Fabulous Forum to see these rising stars as they continue to climb the ladder of our sport."

Following back-to-back knockouts that earned him the WBC Latino Middleweight Title, undefeated southpaw Yamaguchi Falcao (11-0, 4 KOs)will return to the states for the first time since April, 2015 to put his title on the line against German "Zurdo" Perez (10-2-3, 3 KOs) of Los Mochis, Sinaloa in a 10-round match-up.

Staying in the middleweight division, Donegal, Ireland's own Jason "El Animal" Quigley (11-0, 9 KOs) will continue his record of taking on tough challenges and step into the ring against the knockout artist Jorge "Destroyer" Melendez (28-7-1, 26 KOs) from Manati, Puerto Rico in a 10-round bout.
 
18-year-old lightweight Ryan "Kingry" Garcia (6-0, 5 KOs) will make his highly anticipated Golden Boy Promotions debut on the card against Durango, Mexico's Antonio "Chore" Martinez (6-7, 5 KOs). In a professional career that just launched in June, the 15-time national champion has already won six fights, including five by way of knockout.

With the NABA Super Featherweight Title up for grabs, newly crowned champion Carlos "The Solution" Morales (14-1-3, 6 KOs) will look to make it 15 wins in a row after starting his career winless in four fights when he faces challenger Charles Huerta (18-4, 10 KOs) of Paramount, CA in a 10-round affair for Morales' belt and LA bragging rights.
 
Back in the lightweight division, undefeated LA Fight Club favorite Ivan "Striker" Delgado (10-0-1, 3 KOs), will head southwest across the city from his adopted home at the Belasco Theater to take on Tijuana, Mexico's Roberto Rivera (6-3, 5 KOs) in a six or eight round bout.
 
Staying with the lightweights, fan favorite and hard-hitting Christian "Chimpa" Gonzalez (15-0, 13 KOs) from Buena Park, California puts his perfect record on the line against a soon to be announced opponent.
 
Opening up the evening, undefeated Featherweight Joet Gonzalez (14-0, 6 KOs) from Glendora, California continues to take on rugged competition, as he squares off against Torreon, Mexico's Jairo Hernandez (15-10, 8 KOs) in a six or eight round battle.
