Former champion Eric Morel of Puerto Rico will make his debut as a Golden Boy Promotions fighter on December 11 at an event to be staged in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico and broadcast on Showtime, according to his legal adviser Gaby Peñagaricano.
"It seems that it's going to be a big event on December 11 and it is on Showtime. It will be an event designed around the bantamweights," Peñagaricano said.
That night Yonnhy Perez (20-0 with 14 KOs) will face Joseph Agbeko (27-2 with 22 executed) while Vic Darchinyan (35-2-1 with 27 KOs) will go against Abner Mares (20-0 with 13 KOs).
"This tournament is only four guys, but Eric will be there. And of course the promoter will be able to see what they can do in the future. No opponent yet but that is the date scheduled. And of course he will win in a good fight. Everything that's taking place in very good for Eric's career."
