Golden Boy’s must-watch talent will be the supporting cast for the anticipated return of “King” Ryan Garcia (23-1, 19 KOs) who will face the dangerous knockout artist Oscar “La Migraña” Duarte (26-1-1, 21 KOs) in a junior welterweight fight.

The fight night, presented in association with Cancun Boxing, will take place at Toyota Center on Saturday, December 2 in Houston, Texas and will be broadcast worldwide on DAZN.

The co-main event features London’s Ohara “Two Tanks” Davies (25-2, 18 KOs) who will make his highly anticipated U.S. debut as a Golden Boy fighter against El Tigre, Venezuela’s Ismael Barroso (24-4-2, 22 KOs). The 12-round fight is for the WBA junior welterweight interim title (not recognized by The Ring) and is presented in association with TGB Promotions.

On the DAZN card, rising star Floyd “Kid Austin” Schofield (15-0, 11 KOs) of Austin, Texas, will face Tijuana, Mexico’s Ricardo “Explosivo” Torres (17-7-3, 12 KOs) in a 10-round lightweight fight presented in association with Davies Entertainment. Schofield was last seen winning the respect of boxing fans in a bloodbath against the tough Haskell Rhodes this past July 8.

Also making his return is Shane Mosley Jr. (20-4, 11 KOs), who will measure up against San Bernardino’s Joshua Conley (17-5-1, 11 KOs) in a 10-round fight (most likely at middleweight). Mosley Jr. is coming in hot after an explosive fifth-round knockout against D’Mitrius Ballard on the Munguia vs. Derevyanchenko card in June.

Opening the DAZN card, knockout prospect Darius Fulghum (8-0, 8 KOs) will perform in front of his hometown Houston crowd in an eight-round light heavyweight fight against Pachino “Chino” Hill (8-4-1, 6 KOs) of Davenport, Iowa. This fight will mark Fulghum’s sixth time fighting in 2023, making him one of the busiest prospects in boxing.

All Garcia vs. Duarte prelims will be streamed on Golden Boy’s YouTube Channel to kick off the fight night.

In a four-round junior featherweight fight, Waianae, Hawaii’s Asa “Ace” Stevens (5-0, 2 KOs) will go toe-to-toe with Dominque Griffin (5-5-2, 2 KOs) of Irving, Texas.

Former Mexican Olympian and bantamweight prospect Gael “El Terror” Cabrera (2-0, 1 KO) of Sonora, Mexico, will make his return in a four-round fight against Las Vegas, Nevada’s Alejandro Dominguez (2-0, 1 KO).

Opening fight night for his brother and stablemate, the undefeated Sean Garcia (6-0-1, 2 KOs) of Victorville, California will participate in a four-round fight against a soon-to-be-announced opponent.
