Ortiz isn't about to let a little something like charges of assault and battery stop him from committing socially-acceptable assault and battery.

Premier Boxing Champions' upcoming visit to the AT&T Center won't just include heavyweights and Omar Figueroa demolishing Antonio DeMarco, it seems. The organization has announced via press release that the undercard, broadcast on NBCSN, will feature Victor Ortiz, Terrell Gausha, and Hugo Centeno, Jr.

Everyone's favorite flake, the rugged TBA, is presently scheduled to pull triple duty.

Ortiz (30-5-2, 23 KO), the human soap opera, hasn't fought inside the ring since hurting his hand while stopping Manuel Perez last December. This loss snapped a three-fight losing streak, all via stoppage, and came eleven months after he apparently quit against Luis Collazo.

I know this is vindictive of me, but I can't help but be amused by the release's description of Ortiz as "an exciting fighter who never shies away from action."

Gausha (16-0, 8 KO) has cut his teeth on the undercards of major fights this year, picking up wins on the Porter-Broner and Wilder-Duhaupas cards. The former Olympian seems to have found a home at 154, but will need a step up before his career is eyed with the same anticipation as, say, teammate Errol Spence's.

Centeno (23-0, 12 KO), known as "The Boss," has won four straight since an accidental headbutt cut short his 2013 fight with fellow prospect Julian "J-Rock" Williams. Late last year, he scored a brutal knockout of the never-before-stopped James De La Rosa, though his 2015 campaign is thus far solely comprised of a decision win over Lukasz Maciec.

The fact that we're less than a month away from the fight and none of these three have an opponent, should be a fairly clear sign of the level of opposition they're getting, but at least Ortiz is always good for some kind of show.
