With the fights likely to take place in Toluca, lighweight titlist Miguel Vazquez and junior flyweight champion Giovani Segura are set to return on June 18.
Vazquez (28-3, 12 KO) will put his WBA belt on the line against Nicaragua's Marlon Aguilar (25-10-1, 18 KO). Aguilar is a non-contender who lost his last fight to Sergio Torres on March 19 in Mexico. Vazquez was recently pursued by Michael Katsidis, but turned down a fight in Australia, which has now gone to the semi-retired Graham Earl.
Segura (27-1-1, 23 KO) has vacanted his junior flyweight belts in order to move up to flyweight, and will face an opponent to be named. The 5'4" Mexican brawler can punch like hell and could go up even a couple of divisions more, at least on paper.
The fights will go head-to-head in Mexico against Saul "Canelo" Alvarez's fight with Ryan Rhodes, which will also be televised in the States by HBO.Song of the Day
