Perez-Rodela added to Campillo-Shumenov undercard


The junior lightweight fight between Eloy Perez and David Rodela, originally part of the undercard of the now-canceled Shane Mosley-Andre Berto showdown that was to take place on Jan. 30, has been moved to the undercard of the Gabriel Campillo-Beibut Shumenov rematch that takes place at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on Jan. 29.

Perez (15-0-2, 4 KOs), of Salinas, Calif., and Rodela (14-1-3, 6 KOs), of Oxnard, Calif., are both considered to be seasoned prospects with the potential to emerge as 130-pound contenders this year.

The Californians are scheduled to go 10 rounds on the non-televised portion of the card.

The Campillo-Shumenov light heavyweight title bout will be televised live on Fox Sports Net (11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT) along with a 10-round junior middleweight bout between hot Cuban prospect Erislandy Lara (9-0, 5 KOs) and fringe contender Grady Brewer (26-11, 15 KOs), of Lawton, Okla.

Featherweight prospect Ronny Rios (8-0, 4 KOs), of Santa Ana, Calif., is scheduled to face Willshaun Boxley (5-3, 3 KOs), of Coons Rapids, Minn., in a four- or six-round TV swing bout.

A number of unbeaten prospects will be featured on the non-televised undercard of the KZ Event Productions and Golden Boy co-promotion, including lightweight Carlos Molina (9-0, 5 KOs), welterweight Jesse Vargas (7-0, 3 KOs), light heavyweight Gayrat Ahmedov (12-0-1, 8 KOs), and junior middleweight Ravshan Hudaynazarov (9-0, 7 KOs).
