Tonight at 10:00 pm EDT / 7:00 pm PDT on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes, Golden Boy Live! is back with a heavyweight triple-header from Indio, California. BLH will be here with live updates and coverage of the fights, including an immediate post-show recap of all the action.
In the main event, Cuba's "The Real King Kong" Luis Ortiz (20-0, 17 KO) will face veteran and former world title challenger Monte "2 Gunz" Barrett (35-10-2, 20 KO) in a bout set for 10 rounds. The 35-year-old Ortiz is a 6'4" southpaw with skills and power, and the heavy favorite. Barrett, turning 43 next month, hasn't fought since a July 2012 KO-4 loss in New Zealand against Shane Cameron, and is 1-4-2 in his last seven bouts, dating back to 2008.
The co-feature will see "El Gallo Negro" Gerald Washington (11-0, 8 KO) face Houston native Skipp "Strictly Business" Scott (16-1, 10 KO). Washington, 31, is a 6'5" righty with an 82-inch reach, but he's facing a massive guy in the 35-year-old Scott, who stands 6'8". Scott has not fought since January 2013, when he beat veteran Kertson Manswell, but he might be a live dog here. Washington is untested thus far.
The opening TV bout will feature 2012 U.S. Olympian Dominic Breazeale (9-0, 9 KO) as he looks to continue both his win and knockout streaks against familiar club fighter Nagy Aguilera (19-7, 13 KO). The 27-year-old Aguilera, a Dominican fighting out of New York, has lost to his better opponents, but he's also been in the ring with guys like Tomasz Adamek, Samuel Peter, Antonio Tarver, and Maurice Harris, and he did knock out Oleg Maskaev in one round back in 2009. Breazeale, 28, looked under-prepared and overmatched at the high levels in the amateur game, but the former Northern Colorado University quarterback's skills and power have translated well to the pro ranks.
If there is time, the swing bout is set to feature 19-year-old super bantamweight prospect Diego De La Hoya (3-0, 3 KO), who will be facing Jaxel Marrero (1-1-1, 0 KO) in a six-round bout. Diego is the cousin of Oscar De La Hoya.
