Unbeaten welterweight prospect Carlos Adames (14-0, 11 KO) was set to return to action on next Saturday’s ESPN+ card from Florida, but has sprained his foot and is now out of the contest.

Adames will be replaced in the fight by Gabriel Bracero (24-3-1, 5 KO), who steps in to face Artemio Reyes (25-2, 20 KO). The night’s main event is a vacant 130-pound title fight between Christopher Diaz and Masayuki Ito, who will vie for the WBO belt left vacant by Vasyl Lomachenko moving up to lightweight.

The 37-year-old Bracero, a Brooklyn fighter, is probably best known for his devastating 41-second KO of Danny O’Connor in 2015. He’s 0-1-1 in his last two, losing to Paulie Malignaggi and drawing with Thomas LaManna.

Reyes, 31, is on a good streak, winning his last 10 straight, eight by knockout.

Adames, a 24-year-old Dominican based in New York, is someone Top Rank has high hopes for, and he’ll surely be back sooner than later.
