Austin "No Doubt" Trout was supposed to be facing Anthony Mundine this Saturday in Hidalgo, Texas, but he'll have to settle for a replacement opponent after Mundine withdrew from the fight due to a perforated eardrum.

Trout (28-2, 15 KO) will now be facing Luis Galarza in a fight that will be televised as a pre-recorded swing bout if there is an early knockout in either of the two main card bouts on CBS.

Galarza (20-3, 14 KO) is probably best known as a TKO-5 loser to Kell Brook back in 2011. He's gone 3-0 since then, but hasn't fought since September 2013. The 33-year-old fighter was born in Puerto Rico but now lives and fights out of Antioch, Tennessee.

The main event for the card will be a junior welterweight bout between former lightweight titleholder Omar Figueroa (24-0-1, 18 KO) against former lightweight and super featherweight titlist Ricky Burns (37-4-1, 11 KO). The co-feature is a bantamweight showdown between Japan's Tomoki Kameda (31-0, 19 KO) and England's Jamie McDonnell (25-2-1, 12 KO), which is for McDonnell's WBA "world" title, but not for Kameda's WBO title, as the sanctioning body opted not to sanction a unification bout where one of the titles (McDonnell's) isn't even the highest-regarded by its own sanctioning body. (Juan Carlos Payano is the WBA "super world" champion.)
