The other ESPN-televised bout will feature a pair of undefeated 130-pound contenders, when Andy ‘El Tiburon' Vences of San Jose, Calif., takes on Detroit product Erick De Leon. Vences (20-0, 12 KOs) is making his 2018 debut after a 3-0 2017 campaign, which included a two-round knockout against Jairo Ochoa on November 11, 2017, in Fresno, Calif.

De Leon (17-0, 10 KOs) has an unblemished mark as a pro after a sensational amateur career that saw him win three consecutive National Golden Gloves titles. Part of renowned trainer Robert Garcia’s stable in Oxnard, Calif., De Leon is confident that a win over Vences will put him in prime position for a world title shot.
