Tonight at 8:00 pm EST on FOX Sports 1, Golden Boy Promotions presents a doubleheader of in-ring action, as well as a celebration of the 50th birthday of living and still fighting legend Bernard Hopkins.

In the main event, Philadelphia's Eric "The Outlaw" Hunter (19-3, 10 KO) takes on Rene Alvarado (21-3, 14 KO) in a 10-round super featherweight fight. Hunter, 28, has sort of betrayed his own record with a pair of DQ losses (the other was a six-round split decision), the last coming in September 2013 against Mike Oliver. Alvarado, 25, was looking good after a stoppage win over Robinson Castellanos in February of last year, before an upset loss to a revitalized Rocky Juarez in May. He last fought in October, beating Juan Pablo Sanchez in Mexico.

In the co-feature, Michael "The Artist" Perez (21-1-2, 10 KO) faces Miguel Acosta (29-7-2, 23 KO) in a 10-round junior welterweight fight. Perez, 24, was stopped by Omar Figueroa in January 2012, and has gone 6-0-1 since then. Acosta, 36, is a former lightweight titlist who has not fought since May 2013. He's lost three in a row and four of his last five, and hasn't beaten an opponent with a winning record since 2010.
