In the scheduled ten-round welterweight main event, one of boxing’s top prospects, Thomas Dulorme (16-0, 12 KOs) of Carolina, Puerto Rico, puts his flawless record on the line against Luis Carlos Abregu (33-1, 27 KOs) of Salta, Argentina. Abregu, 28, whose only loss came against current welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, will look to use his experience and knockout power to overcome the boxing prowess of the 22-year-old Dulorme. Either fighter could earn a title shot with a win.

The second fight features Mauricio Herrera (18-2, 7 KOs) of Lake Elsinore, Cal., and San Francisco’s Karim Mayfield (16-0-1, 10 KOs) in a scheduled ten-round light welterweight battle. Herrera, 32, most recently lost by unanimous decision in an exciting fight with Mike Alvarado, while Mayfield, 31, improved his spotless record by knocking out the previously undefeated Raymond Serrano in his last fight.

The opening bout features two Mexican nationals going toe-to-toe when Miguel Vazquez (31-3, 13 KOs) of Guadalajara defends his lightweight title against Tijuana’s Marvin Quintero (25-3, 21 KOs). The 25-year-old Vazquez has a significant reach and height advantage, while the left-handed Quintero, also 25, owns a 75% knockout percentage and will look to make a statement with his power punching in this 12-round tilt.

The evening of boxing programming starts at the 10:00 p.m. ET/PT with the premiere of “2 Days: Seth Mitchell” on HBO.
