By Francisco Salazar

Unbeaten junior lightweight Erick De Leon will square off against Jose Salinas on January 27, Top Rank matchmaker Brad Goodman told BoxingScene.com.

The eight round bout will take place at the Sportsmen's Lodge in Studio City, Calif., a suburb of Los Angeles.

Preceding the De Leon-Salinas clash will be an eight round bout between welterweight Arnold Barboza Jr. and Johnny Rodriguez. Both bouts will air on UniMas, beginning at 11 p.m. ET/ PT.

In his last bout on October 28, De Leon (14-0, 8 KOs) stopped Aldimar Silva in the third round in Laredo, Texas. De Leon, who has had Robert Garcia work his corner in previous fights, has stopped his last three opponents.

Salinas (10-2-1, 5 KOs), who hails from Las Cruces, New Mexico, won an eight round unanimous decision over Dardan Zenunaj on September 1.

Barboza (14-0, 5 KOs), who resides in the Los Angeles area, won a one-sided six round decision over Martin Martinez two weeks ago.

Rodriguez (8-1-1, 5 KOs), who has fought all of his bouts in and around his hometown of Denver, Colorado, is unbeaten in his last four bouts.

Also fighting on the card will be 2016 Olympic gold medalist Robson Conceicao (1-0), who recently signed a promotional contract with Top Rank. He will face Aaron Ely (3-1, 1 KO) in a six round junior lightweight bout.
