The hype around lightweight Floyd Schofield is growing.

Schofield, 21, will face Esteuri Suero in the co-feature fight of Saturday's DAZN show at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.

Schofield (16-0, 12 KOs) wants to fight the big names. 

Armed with his father as the most vocal member of the team, Schofield is on his sixth fight with Golden Boy Promotions and, in that time, has headlined two cards and been featured in prominent roles on both. It is safe to say the hopes are high for Schofield to go from prospect to contender soon. 

Schofield has listened to Suero talk a good game in the fight build-up.

“What he is saying, it sounds good, Schofield said, smiling. "My last opponent said the same thing. Y’all know how that ended.”

Schofield stopped Ricardo Lopez Torres in the first round, dropping his opponent four times.

Schofield displayed power-punching ability in a lower weight class early in his career and has garnered much fanfare. Some wonder if he could be Golden Boy Promotions’ next breakout star. It's up to Schofield to live up to that potential.

Suero (13-1, 10 KOs), just 23, somehow comes across as a veteran by comparison. He fought as a teen for Golden Boy, and has now matured into a threat in his early twenties. Suero’s lone loss was to Sterling Castillo last year, and he isn’t that far removed from being considered a prospect. 

“This Saturday I am going to do my best in the ring,” Suero said. “That title is going back with me to the Dominican Republic.”

Schofield sat at the press conference next to boxing legend and Golden Boy executive Bernard Hopkins, who has clearly taken a liking to him. Like Hopkins, Schofield isn't short on confidence.

“We are getting a stoppage,” Schofield said.
