Additional televised action features undefeated rising super welterweight contenders as Detroit's Domonique Dolton (17-0, 9 KOs) battles 2012 Mexican Olympian Oscar Molina (13-0, 10 KOs).
 
Televised coverage begins at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT and is headlined by super featherweight world champions Javier Fortuna taking on 2004 Puerto Rican Olympian Carlos Velasquez. Renowned sports broadcaster Jessi Losada takes on blow-by-blow duties alongside boxing champion Daniel Ponce de Leon for FOX Deportes.

Further undercard action features Mayweather Promotions' stars including undefeated cruiserweight knockout artist Andrew "The Beast" Tabiti (11-0, 10 KOs) taking on Tamas Lodi (16-5-2, 13 KOs) in an eight round bout and former world champion Mickey Bey (21-1-1, 10 KOs) in a 10-round lightweight bout.
 
Also entering the ring is 30-year-old Buffalo-native Lionell Thompson (15-3, 9 KOs) in an eight round light heavyweight attraction, undefeated 20-year-old Ladarius "Memphis" Miller fighting out of Las Vegas in a lightweight bout against 27-year-old Minneapolis-native RonDale Hubbert (10-2-1, 6 KOs) and 21-year-old Milwaukee-native Thomas Hill (4-0, 1 KO) in a six-round super welterweight affair.
 
Rounding out the night of fights is 25-year-old Juan Heraldez (8-0, 6 KOs) out of Las Vegas taking on 27-year-old Los Angeles-native Joaquin Chavez (9-17-3, 2 KOs) in a six-round super lightweight bout and 26-year-old Cuban Leduan Barthelemy (6-0, 3 KOs) in a featherweight fight.
 
A once-beaten contender at 168-pounds, the 27-year-old Love will make his third start of 2015 on September 29. He bounced back from his lone defeat to dominate Scott Sigmon in March and Jason Escalera in June. The Inkster, Michigan native owns wins over Marco Antonio Periban, Derrick Findley and Lajuan Simon. He will face the 34-year-old Adama who has twice fought for a world title and fights out of Joliet, Illinois by way of Ghana.
 
A highly regarded prospect out of the late Emanuel Steward's Kronk Gym, the Detroit-native Dolton is undefeated as a pro entering his bout September 29. The 25-year-old has already taken home victories over Victor Fonseca and Juan Carlos Rojas in 2015 and owns victories over Donatas Bondorovas, Richard Gutierrez and Jonathan Batista in his seven-year career.
 
Representing Mexico, the 2012 Olympian Molina fights out of Norwalk, California and is unbeaten in his brief professional career. The 25-year-old turned pro in 2013 and after winning a decision in his first bout, he went on to knock out six opponents in a row. His pro fights have been split almost evenly between California and Mexico and he will be fighting in Las Vegas for the first time as a pro on September 29.
 
A powerful fighter who knocked out the first ten opponents he faced, Tabiti proved he can box and go rounds in his last fight, an eight-round shutout of Roberto Santos in July. Prior to that, the 26-year-old kicked-off his 2015 campaign with a sensational knockout of Thomas Hanshaw in June. The Chicago-born fighter now trains out of Las Vegas and will take on the 26-year-old Hungarian Lodi.
 
The 32-year-old Bey returns to the ring on September 29 for the first time since winning a world title in September 2014 with a victory over Miguel Vazquez. Bey has won three fights in a row including victories over Alan Herrera and Carlos Cardenas. Representing Cleveland, Ohio, Bey looks to work his way back to title-contention beginning on September 29.

I like the Dolton vs Molina undefeated prospects fight. Feel like PBC is throwing a lot of those types of fights together. LOL @ Mickey Bey being thrown in randomly at the bottom vs TBA. Don't piss off Mayweather imo…
