On Friday, tickets will go on sale for the October 10 pay-per-view event presented by Top Rank featuring title defenses by Juan Manuel Lopez and Yuriorkis Gamboa. The sale starts at noon eastern for the show to be held at Madison Square Garden.

122-pound titlist Lopez (26-0, 24 KO) will defend against tough journeyman Rogers Mtagwa (26-12-2, 18 KO), a fight that has been roundly downplayed by many as a non-challenge for Lopez. Lopez himself objected to the matchup, but it will go ahead nonetheless.

Gamboa (15-0, 13 KO) defends his 126-pound title against Whyber Garcia (22-6, 15 KO) in the co-feature. It's nothing much more than Gamboa's recent fights have been, a should-win against a decent veteran. Also featured will be an intriguing heavyweight bout between former Cuban Olympian Odlanier Solis (14-0, 10 KO) and rising American contender Kevin Johnson (22-0-1, 9 KO).

Tickets are priced at $250, $150, $75 and $50, and will be available at the MSG box office, the arena's web site TheGarden.com, and all Ticketmaster outlets.
