Top Rank has assembled a field of undefeated prospects for its October 31st Naoya Inoue-Jason Moloney undercard. 2016 Olympic gold medalist Robson Conceicao leads a field that also includes top heavyweight up-and-comer Jared Anderson and super lightweight finisher Julian “Hammer Hands” Rodriguez.

Conceicao (14-0, 7 KO), who defeated the highly accomplished Lazaro Alvarez and Sofiane Oumiha en route to Rio glory, has been rather quiet during his three years on the pro scene. That could change against Luis Coria (12-3, 7 KO), who put Adam Lopez through the grinder in one of the year’s best fights back in June.

Anderson (6-0, 6 KO) will make his fifth appearance of 2020 against Luis Eduardo Pena (6-1, 6 KO), who got blown up in five by Michael Coffie this past August and whose BoxRec picture is almost certainly his driver’s license photo. Rodriguez (20-0, 13 KO) takes on TBA, as does 20-year-old light flyweight Jesse “Bam” Rodriguez (12-0, 8 KO).

Finally, rising super lightweight Andy Hiraoka (15-0, 10 KO) faces Rickey Edwards (12-4, 3 KO) and former TMT super featherweight Andres Cortes (13-0, 7 KO), last seen warring his way past Alejandro Salinas in July, meets George Acosta (10-1, 1 KO).
