By Francisco Salazar

Unbeaten middleweight Yamaguchi Falcao will face Taronze Washington in a stay-busy bout tonight.

The 10 round bout will take place at the A La Carte Event Pavilion in Tampa, Florida.

Falcao (13-0 1 NC, with 6 KOs), who is the older brother of Esquiva Falcao, won a one-sided decision over Morgan Fitch on May 5 in Las Vegas. The victory over Fitch snapped a streak of four consecutive knockout wins.

The 27-year-old Yamaguchi Falcao won a bronze medal at the 2012 Olympic Games in London and is one of Golden Boy Promotions unbeaten prospects.

Washington (17-23, with 9 KOs), who resides in Dallas, has lost his last four bouts and six of his last seven. The 37-year-old Washington made his pro debut in May of 2003.

Former world junior featherweight title challenger Cesar Seda will square off against Rogelio Casarez in an eight round junior lightweight bout.

Seda (27-3, with 18 KOs) stopped Sergio Gomez the second round of his last fight on March 24. The Puerto Rico fighter lost by unanimous decision to Leo Santa Cruz in 2013 and to Cesar Juarez by majority decision in 2015.

Casarez (13-5, with 5 KOs) has won his last four bouts.

In a six round clash featuring unbeaten middleweights, Connor Coyle (5-0, with 2 KOs), who resides in Tampa, will face Joshua Maxwell (2-0, with 2 KOs).

Tonight will mark the inaugural promotion of Fire Fist Boxing Promotions.
