22-year-old middleweight prospect Richard Brewart Jr will return this Sunday (6:30 pm ET, Fight Hub TV) on another edition of Thompson Boxing’s “3.2.1. Boxing” series, facing fellow unbeaten fighter Louis Hernandez in a six-round matchup.

Brewart (7-0, 3 KO) hasn’t fought since February, when he rolled past journeyman Erick Daniel Martinez via third round stoppage, and the California native is itching to get back in the ring. He said it’s been a “grueling” camp, but that it has prepared him to stop Hernandez (8-0-1, 6 KO), a 26-year-old originally from Mississippi.

Brewart says there’s a bit of beef in the matchup, too.

“To be honest, I really don’t like him,” Brewart said. “Hernandez hasn’t done anything in the sport of boxing and is talking a lot of trash on the internet. He should be more humble about getting this fight, he has never been at this level. I’m ready to put a beating on him.”

Brewart is also promising entertainment if you tune in, saying, “I am going to come out firing big bombs as soon as the opening bell rings. I’m going to bring the heat, and he is going to question if he still wants to box after this fight. This will be a dominant performance that moves me into the conversation of the prospect of the year.”

Along with the Brewart-Hernandez opener, we’ll see Ruben Torres (13-0, 11 KO) face Jose Luis Rodriguez (23-13-1, 13 KO) in an eight-round junior welterweight main event, plus Saul Sanchez (14-1, 8 KO) take on Mario Hernandez (10-1-1, 3 KO) in an eight-round junior bantamweight bout.
