Ramirez-Wilson to co-feature Jan. 24 Golden Boy Live! show
Dominic Breazeale, the U.S. heavyweight representative at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, hits the mitts with his trainer John Bray during a recent media workout.
Featherweight prospect Julian Ramirez and heavyweight Olympian Dominic Breazeale are on the recently announced undercard of the Jan. 24 Golden Boy Live! show in Indio, Calif. Ramirez faces Derrick Wilson in the eight-round co-feature to the Antonio Orozco-Miguel Angel Huerta headliner on Fox Sports 1 and Fox Deportes.
The full undercard was announced by Golden Boy Promotions on Monday. Ramirez (9-0, 6 knockouts) is a 20-year-old southpaw boxer-puncher from East L.A. who is coming off a knockout over unbeaten Abraham Rubio. Wilson (10-5-2, 3 KOs) is a talented spoiler with dangerous speed and power. The 25-year-old Florida-based fighter owns victories over numerous prospects, including Braulio Santos and Charles Huerta.
The Ramirez-Wilson bout will precede the scheduled 10-round main event between unbeaten Orozco, a San Diego-based junior welterweight prospect, and Huerta, a former lightweight contender from Mexico City, Mexico.
The opening bout of the broadcast from the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino will feature Breazeale (8-0, 8 KOs), who has knocked out all eight of his opponents since turning pro after representing the United States in the 2012 Olympic Games. The 28-year-old Alhambra, Calif. resident faces Texas journeyman Homer Fonseca (10-6-3, 3 KOs) in an eight-round bout.
The non-televised portion of the card is topped by a 12-round junior middleweight bout between former IBF titleholder Cornelius Bundrage and once-beaten Miami favorite Joey Hernandez.
Also on the undercard, unbeaten Los Angeles heavyweight Gerald Washington will face Mississippi journeyman Arron Lyons in a scheduled eight rounder, and former amateur standouts Manny Robles Jr. and Ricky Lopez will fight a six-round featherweight bout. Four other bouts, all four-rounders, will kick off the card.
Fans in attendance will have the opportunity to meet and greet special guest Abner Mares, as the three-division titleholder will be on site to take photos and sign autographs on fight night from 6:00 p.m-7:00 p.m. inside the Fantasy Springs Special Events Center.
The Fantasy Springs Special Events Center doors open at 4:00 p.m. and the first fight begins at 4:30 p.m. The Fox Sports 1 and Fox Deportes broadcast airs live at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT.
