Santana (23-4-1, 12 KOs) is coming off a sixth round knockout win over Arman Ovsepyan on December 12. It was his first fight in almost eight months, when he dropped a 10 round unanimous decision against Sadam Ali.

The loss snapped a 10-bout winning streak for Santana.

The 29-year-old Santana, who recently signed a managerial contract with Frank Espinoza, currently trains at Knuckleheadz Gym in nearby Ventura.

Paredes (36-5-1, 24 KOs) returned to the ring on December 26 after an over year-long layoff, knocking out Jesus Lora in the first round.

Prior to the Lora fight, Paredes lost back-to-back 10 round decision losses to Alfonso Gomez and Alan Sanchez.

Junior welterweight Luis Ramos (25-2, 10 KOs), who is also managed by Espinoza, will also see action on the Top Rank card in an eight round non-televised bout.
