After a stellar amateur career, Mancini debut as a professional just before turning 18 years old. This charismatic fighter then developed a long streak of victories as he rose up the 135-pound rankings, most of ending them by stunning knockout. In his first opportunity at a world title, he faced the legendary Alexis "El Flaco Explosivo"Arguello in a fight for the WBC Lightweight World Title. Though he was unsuccessful in his first defense, Mancini then defeated Arturo "Art" Frias a year later to win the WBA Lightweight World Title, which began a series of defenses against fighters such as Orlando "Romerito" Romero and Bobby "Schoolboy" Chacon. Mancini will be in attendance for this event to meet fans, sign autographs and take pictures inside the Fantasy Springs Special Events Center before the ESPN transmission begins. The meet-and-greet is open to the public with the purchase of a ticket to the event.

Duarte's last five fights have ended before the final bell, and he'll be tested against war-ready and dangerous Perez.
