Getty Images has your hookup for a live, legal stream of the Gamboa-Solis undercard in Atlantic City this evening, starting at 6pm EDT. I'm going to step out for a bit, but everyone watching is welcome to share their impressions of the undercard action. Here's what you can look forward to:

Super Bantamweights, 12 Rounds
Teon Kennedy (16-0-1, 7 KO) v. Jorge Diaz (15-0, 9 KO)

Good fight for both the 24-year-old Kennedy and the 23-year-old Diaz. They've faced similar levels of competition so far, second-tier gatekeeper types, and now they test their skills against one another. All in all this might wind up being the most competitive fight on the entire card.

Junior Middleweights, 6 Rounds
Glen Tapia (8-0, 5 KO) v. Eberto Medina (5-5, 1 KO)

Tapia, 21, is a legit prospect who has helped Manny Pacquiao prepare for his recent fights, and sparred with Joshua Clottey for Clottey's 2009 fight with Miguel Cotto. Brick did a feature on him last April. Watch his body work and love it.

Bantamweights, 4 Rounds
Miguel Cartagena (0-0, 0 KO) v. Omar Gonzalez (2-5, 0 KO)

The pro debut for Cartagena, an 18-year-old from Philadelphia who was the 2009 National Golden Gloves champion and was on Team USA for a bit. He amassed an amateur record of 114-11, and both he and trainer Javier Varella are saying they think he's better suited to the pro style.

Featherweights, 4 Rounds
Camilo Perez (1-0, 1 KO) v. Desi Williams (0-1, 0 KO)

20-year-old Perez of Puerto Rico won the gold medal at the 2010 Central American and Caribbean Games as a bantamweight.

Heavyweight Gimmick, 4 Rounds
Tom Zbikowski (2-0, 2 KO) v. Caleb Grummet (0-0-1, 0 KO)

Zbikowski is a football player. We've been over this. Emanuel Steward will be in his corner.

Middleweights, 4 Rounds
Rashad Brown (2-0, 0 KO) v. Darryl Parker (2-0, 2 KO)

Well we've got Brown, from Philly with a few articles about his amateur exploits scattered around, and Parker, from Kentucky with a BoxRec page. Who's your money on, sight unseen?
