In the second main event, Jorge "El Nino De Oro" Linares (43-3, 27 KOs) will face Mercito "No Mercy" Gesta (31-1-2, 17 KOs) in a 12-round defense of his WBA and Ring Magazine Lightweight Titles. The event will be televised live on HBO Boxing After Dark beginning at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.

LUCAS "LA MAQUINA" MATTHYSSE, FORMER INTERIM WBC SUPERLIGHTWEIGHT:
"I'm excited this opportunity to fight for a world title. We prepared for this fight really well. We prepared in Argentina, and then finished in Indio. This Saturday, we will walk away with a world title. We know that he manages his distance well and that he has a good jab, but we prepared for that. We learned a few things, but I assure the fans that they will once again see the "Machine" this Saturday."

TEWA KIRAM, PABA WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPION:
"I'm very thankful that I'm fighting for a world title this Saturday against Lucas Matthysse. I'm looking forward to winning a world and taking the belt back to Thailand. Don't miss out on this great show."
