Saucedo will put his unblemished record on the line against the hard-hitting ABNER LOPEZ (25-8, 21 KOs) in a 10-round bout. Saucedo, from Oklahoma City, holds the WBO Latino belt and trains with Abel Sanchez’s stable in the mountains of Big Bear, Calif. He last fought on November 11, 2017, dropping Gustavo Vittori three times in the third round to force the stoppage.

Mayer (3-0, 2 KOs), will take on the rugged MARIA SEMERTZOGLOU (7-3, 2 KOs) in a six-round super lightweight bout. Mayer represented the United States at the 2016 Olympics, where she fell just one win short of advancing to the medal round. A Los Angeles native, Mayer will be making her StubHub Center debut against Semertzoglou, a two-time European title challenger who has never been knocked out.

Falcao (19-0, 13 KOs) will face SALIM LARBI (18-8-1, 5 KOs) of Brooklyn, New York.
