Current WBO Featherweight Champion Orlando Salido (39-11-2, 27 KOs) will put his title on the line against undefeated challenger Mikey Garcia (29-0, 25 KOs) in the main event of the evening, and Vanes Martirosyan (32-0, 20 KOs) will square off against crafty southpaw Erislandy Lara (17-1-1, 11 KOs) to finally decide the WBC Junior Middleweight mandatory challenger position in the highly anticipated co-main event.
