Top Rank has announced its next three card for its long-running “Solo Boxeo” series on Spanish-language network UniMas.
On Friday, Oct. 14 at the Sportsmans Lodge in Studio City, California, lightweight contender Jose Felix Jr. (34-1-1, 26 KOs), of Mexico, will meet countryman Alan Herrera (33-8, 21 KOs) in the 10-round main event. Felix has won seven fights in a row since dropping a decision to Bryan Vasquez for an interim junior lightweight belt in April 2014.
Two weeks later, on Oct. 28 at the Larendo Energy Center in Laredo, Texas, junior lightweight Erick De Leon (13-0, 7 KOs), born in Mexcio, will meet Aldimar Dos Santos (19-10, 12 KOs), of Brazil, in the eight-round main event. Middleweight prospect Esquiva Falcao (14-0, 11 KOs), a 2012 Brazilian Olympic silver medalist, will face Gerardo Ibarra in the scheduled eight-round co-feature.
Then comes what looks like the best show of the three on paper on Nov. 4 at the Treasure Island in Las Vegas on the eve of the Manny Pacquiao-Jessie Vargas pay-per-view.
In the 10-round main event, junior lightweight Casey Ramos (23-0, 6 KOs), of Austin, Texas, and Andy Vences (16-0, 10 KOs), of San Jose, California, will square off in a battle of unbeaten prospects. In the eight-round co-feature, promising welterweight Alex Saucedo (22-0, 14 KOs), of Oklahoma City, will face the more experienced Raymond Serrano (21-3, 9 KOs), of Philadelphia, who is coming off a loss to contender Brad Solomon last October.
“We have some good cards coming up but Ramos and Vences is a very interesting fight,” Top Rank vice president Carl Moretti said. “It’s more of a step up for Vences than it is for Ramos but it should be a very good fight, and Saucedo should get a good test from Serrano. It’s the night before our big fight with Pacquiao and Vargas, so the fans in town have another show to go to, which makes it great boxing weekend.”
