In televised action will be 23-year-old former amateur star Jermall Charlo (13-0, 9 KO’s) of Houston, who has been turning heads in the professional game and is coming off of the biggest win of his career, a fifth round stoppage of 29-3-2 Orlando Lora on April 20. Charlo will meet the experienced Luis Hernandez (21-5, 14 KO’s) of Ibarra, Ecuador in a six-round junior middleweight contest.

Charlo’s fellow Texan, 2012 United States Olympian Errol Spence Jr. (5-0, 4 KO’s) hailing from Dallas, has kept a torrid pace since the 23-year-old turned pro in November of last year, most recently stopping 21-fight veteran Brandon Hoskins in a single round on May 3. He will face Guillermo Ibarra (7-2, 4 KO’s) of Los Mochis, Mexico in a junior middleweight bout scheduled for four rounds

Trained by the renowned Ronnie Shields, exciting 19-year-old Augusta native Justin DeLoach (2-0, 1 KO) is seen by many as having the tools to become a world champion one day. On June 1, the welterweight will square off with debuting Homestead, Florida native Jonathan Olivera in a four-round bout which will be aired on the broadcast time permitting.

Another one of Shields pupils, Miami’s Steve Geffrard (0-1) will look for his first pro win when he battles Baltimore’s Travis Reeves in a four-round cruiserweight match-up.

Plus, Ponce, Puerto Rico’s Chris Velez (4-0-1, 3 KO’s) risks his unbeaten record in a six-round welterweight fight against Miami’s Jose Angel Segura (2-3-2, 1 KO) and Fort Lauderdale’s Travis Castellon (0-0-1) faces Orlando native Will Fauth, who will be making his professional debut, in a four-round lightweight bout.
