Tonight on ESPN Deportes and WatchESPN.com, Golden Boy Boxing returns from the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California, with a junior welterweight main event that promises action.
Fidel Maldonado Jr (24-3, 19 KO) and Ismael Barroso (19-1-2, 18 KO) will meet in that 10-round main event, a matchup of two guys who throw heavy shots. Barroso hasn’t fought in 17 months, following his lighweight title fight loss to Anthony Crolla, and is looking to get into the mix at 140.
Maldonado has won three straight and five of his last six, with the other result a draw. Most recently, he won a split decision in June over Pablo Cesar Cano.
Cano (30-6-1, 21 KO) will also be in action, as he faces Marcelino Lopez (32-2-1, 17 KO) in another 10-round junior welterweight fight.
ESPN Deportes coverage begins at 10 pm ET, but you can tune in for early fights live on WatchESPN at 8:30 pm ET.
