No fewer than seven undefeated fighters will step into the ring on Friday, November 18, at Fantasy Springs Casino Resort in Indio, California, as Golden Boy Promotions showcases its growing list of prospects on the undercard of the highly anticipated 10-round welterweights showdown between former World Champions Mauricio "El Maestro" Herrera (22-6, 7 KOs) and Pablo Cesar "El Demoledor" Cano (29-5-1, 21 KOs).

Herrera weighed in at 143.4-pounds, while Cano was 142.8-pounds.
 
And Hollywood will come to the desert as former three-division world champion Vinny Paz - the subject of the new critically-acclaimed film "Bleed for This" starring Miles Teller and Aaron Eckhart -- will be the special VIP guest. The five-time world champion will be available to meet and greet fans in attendance at the Special Events Center before the televised portion of the Estrella TV Boxeo Estelar broadcast.
 
From top to bottom, the November 18 show will give fans a glimpse of the future of boxing.

Tough Italian-American, Rhode Island fighter, Vinny Paz (50-10, 30 KOs) is a former five-time world champion having held titles in the lightweight, light middleweight and super middleweight divisions-as well as becoming the second fighter in boxing history to win both lightweight and junior middleweight world championships. Shortly after winning his junior middleweight world title, tragedy struck as Pazienza was forced to relinquish the title due to a serious car accident in which his neck was broken. Doctors informed him he might never walk again-let alone fight again. Determined to gain another world title shot and disobeying doctor's orders, Paz maintained his workout regime and returned to the ring thirteen months later defeating future WBC World Jr. Middleweight Champion Luis Santana via a 10-round decision. Pazienza also went on to overthrow Roberto Duran twice for the IBC Super Middleweight titles. The 2016 film Bleed for This, starring Miles Teller and Aaron Eckhart is based on his injury and comeback to boxing.
