LOS ANGELES, July 3 – This Friday night, middleweight contender Enrique Ornelas (27-4, 17 KOs) is back in action and looking to finish off his Fourth of July with some fireworks of his own when he takes on upset-minded Daryl Salmon (15-2, 4 KOs) in a ten round bout that headlines TeleFutura’s ‘Solo Boxeo’ at the Dodge Arena in Hidalgo, Texas..

In the co-main event, a middleweight bout scheduled for eight rounds features unbeaten Freddie Roach trained, Scottish sensation Craig McEwan (10-0, 6 KOs) as he puts his undefeated record on the line against tough Mexico City product Juan Sanchez (7-2, 3 KOs).
