Fighting in the co-main event, Eddie “E-Boy” Gomez (20-2, 11 KOs) of the Bronx, NY will take on Alejandro “El Elegido” Barrera (26-3, 17 KOs) of Nuevo Leon, Mex. for an eight-round welterweight fight. Gomez was last seen defeating Dennis “The Menace” Dauti in a unanimous decision in April.

Hoping to make the ESPN air-time, Los Angeles native Pablo “The Shark” Rubio, Jr. (9-0, 3 KOs) will put his unblemished record on the line against David Perez (8-1, 4 KOs) of Houston, TX in a super bantamweight bout to go four or six rounds.
