Yamaguchi Falcao-Martin Fidel Rios Rematch, 11/15

LOS ANGELES - Golden Boy Promotions returns to the airwaves of Globosat in Brazil on Saturday, November 15 with an exciting card featuring several clashes between Brazil and Argentina, as well the latest bout of Olympic Bronze medalist Yamaguchi Falcao.

Making a special appearance will be former WBO and WBA Super Featherweight Champion, and two-time WBO Lightweight Champion, Acelino "Popo" Freitas. The future hall of famer looks forward to supporting his fellow countrymen as they enter the ring on November 15.

In an eight-round middleweight matchup, Vitoria, Brazil's Falcao puts his unbeaten record on the line in a rematch against Argentina's Martin Fidel Rios. In January, the two met for the first time, with a controversial no contest verdict being rendered. Next month, they get the chance to face off again at the Ginasio Municipal Falcao - Praia Grande in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The main event on November 15th will be contested over 10 rounds for the WBO Latino Super Welterweight Title, as Santos' unbeaten Patrick Teixeira faces off with Argentina's Ulises "Cloroformo" Lopez. In the 10-round televised opener, Brazil's own Carlos "Falcao" Nascimento battles Argentina's Alejandro "Mojarra" Valori.

"PRAIA GRANDE, BOXE GRANDE" is presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Arano Box Promotions and sponsored by IBG. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. UTC/GMT and the first fight begins at 9:00 p.m. UTC/GMT. The Globosat broadcast begins at 10:30 p.m. UTC/GMT.

One of the most accomplished amateurs in Brazilian boxing history, 2012 Olympic Bronze medalist Yamaguchi Falcao (2-0, 1 KO, 1 NC) is currently unbeaten as a professional, but the 26-year-old southpaw has one blemish on his record that he wants to clear up on November 15. In his professional debut in January against La Pampa's Martin Fidel Rios (13-2-2, 7 KOs, 1 NC), the two showed up to fight and were on their way to an entertaining bout when they were both controversially disqualified for hitting after the bell. The result was later ruled a no contest, but next month the two will battle it out once more to settle the score.

23-year-old southpaw Patrick Teixeira (23-0, 19 KOs) is considered to be Brazil's top candidate for world title honors in the coming year, but his performance against Ulises Lopez (28-4, 16 KOs) will be key in finding out if he's ready for the 154-pound elite. A ferocious puncher with 13 wins coming in two rounds or less, Teixeira will be pushed by Lopez, who has won eight of his last 10 bouts.

Hometown Sao Paulo favorite Carlos Nascimento (14-0, 13 KOs) has garnered a significant fan following since he began fighting professionally in 2013, and he will have the crowd on his side in his showdown with 31-year-old veteran Alejandro Valori (17-3, 11 KOs) of Buenos Aires, a fighter who has no problem stepping into his opponent's backyard in search of victory.
