Herrera-Lundy 7/11 HBO Latino Bill Now A Tripleheader

By Jake Donovan

Golden Boy Promotions continues to load up its July 11 show at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena, topped by a coin-flip crossroads bout between hard luck junior welterweights Mauricio Herrera and Hank Lundy. 

What was originally targeted as a televised doubleheader on HBO Latino has now become a tripleheader. The opening bout of the telecast will feature unbeaten rising prospect Joseph 'Jo Jo' Diaz taking a major step up in class, facing Top 10 contender Rene Alvarado.

Previously added to the card, Michael 'The Artist' Perez faces Sharif Bogere in the evening's co-feature. 

Loading up the show is key for Golden Boy, who will turn to HBO Latino as a needed outlet for its vast stable of stars and prospects. The Southern California-based company received word that its Golden Boy Live! series on Fox Sports 1 will not renew once its current deal runs out by month's end.

Ironically, Golden Boy's restored relationship with HBO and its affiliate networks features a card whose hosting venue's doors will shut down upon its conclusion. The July 11 show will mark the last ever at the Sports Arena before permanently going out of business.
