Rene Alvarado vs. Carlos Morales on 12/8, Facebook Watch

Two of the toughest fighters in the stacked super featherweight division will fight for a chance at a world title as Rene "El Gemelo" Alvarado (29-8, 20 KOs) and Carlos "The Solution" Morales (17-3-3, 6 KOs) meet in a 12-round WBA Super Featherweight World Title Eliminator in the main event of the Dec. 8 edition of Golden Boy Fight Night at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif. The action will be streamed live globally on Facebook Watch via the Golden Boy Fight Night Page.
 
Alvarado is a 29-year-old contender who has faced some of the toughest fighters in the featherweight and super featherweight divisions. The Nicaraguan warrior has scored victories against the likes of Robinson "Robin Hood" Castellanos, Jayson "La Maravilla" Velez, Roger "The Kid" Gutierrez and Denis "Djingis Khan" Shafikov, while also participating in competitive battles against Yuriorkis "El Ciclon de Guantánamo" Gamboa, Andrew "El Chango" Cancio, Joseph "JoJo" Diaz Jr., Rocky Juarez and Jezreel "El Invisible" Corrales in his decade-long career. Alvarado has done what it takes to earn a world title shot, and he is one fight away from this opportunity in this upcoming clash against Morales.
 
"Fans in the United States know me because they know that I'm a true warrior," said Rene Alvarado. "I'm always given tests, and I always pass them. I have the 'Solution' to defeat Carlos Morales this December."

Morales is a 28-year-old contender who currently resides in Los Angeles. Despite starting his career with a record of 0-1-3, Morales scored 16 impressive victories in a row, including a split decision victory against Charles Huerta in 2017 that earned him the NABA 130-pound title. Morales then defeated Cesar Alan Valenzuela before losing to Alberto "Explosivo" Machado in a close and tough unification fight. Morales regained the NABA Super Featherweight Title late last year with a technical decision against Dardan Zenunaj and will look to come back from his controversial loss to Ryan "Kingry" Garcia in what will be a difficult fight against Alvarado.
 
"I am really excited to finally face Rene Alvarado," said Carlos Morales. "He's a great warrior, who has faced tough competition. He is ranked number one by the WBA. We have contrasting styles, and this will be a must-watch event."
 
Also on the Dec. 8 card is Hector "El Finito" Tanajara Jr. (15-0, 5 KOs) of San Antonio, Texas, who will battle Roberto "Tito" Manzanarez (36-2, 29 KOs) of Phoenix, Arizona in a 10-round lightweight clash.
 
NABO Featherweight Champion Joet Gonzalez (20-0, 11 KOs) of Glendora, Calif. will defend his belt for the first time in a 10-round fight.
 
Luis Feliciano (8-0, 5 KOs) of Utuado, Puerto Rico will open the night of action in an eight-round super lightweight attraction.
 
Javier Padilla (6-0-1, 5 KOs) of Indio, Calif. will participate in a four-round featherweight clash.
 
Patricio Manuel will make his professional debut in a four-round super featherweight fight.
 
Opponents for all four fighters will be announced shortly.
