A few notes from around the boxing world:

• Troubled welterweight Frankie Gomez could meet Hank Lundy on Feb. 5 on Golden Boy's Estrella TV card. Golden Boy vice president Eric Gomez -- no relation -- told ESPN.com the fight is in the works.

Lundy (26-5-1, 13 KOs), 31, of Philadelphia, would represent Gomez's stiffest test. Lundy has faced several quality opponents, although he lost consecutive decisions to Thomas Dulorme and Mauricio Herrera before scoring a fifth-round knockout win against a journeyman opponent on Oct. 17. Gomez (19-0, 13 KOs), 23, of East Los Angeles, has repeatedly missed weight for fights, not come shown up in shape and had legal issues following a standout amateur career and signing with fanfare with Golden Boy in 2006.

• Premier Boxing Champions announced its main event on Jan. 12 (Fox Sports 1, 11 p.m. ET): Mexican featherweight prospect Miguel Flores (18-0, 9 KOs), 23, who fights out of Houston, will be taking on Mexico's Mario Briones (27-4-2, 20 KOs) in a 10-round bout at the Dancehall in San Antonio. Briones, 29, will be fighting in the United States for the first time.

"It's an amazing feeling to be in this main event and it has motivated me even more than ever to have this opportunity," Flores said. "I am always in shape and ready to get into the ring. I promise a great show in San Antonio."

Said Briones, "I am thankful for this opportunity and I hope that my opponent is taking me very seriously. This is going to be the hardest fight he has ever been in. I've trained to go the distance, but we will be looking for a big knockout."

• Nicaraguan junior lightweight contender Oliver Flores (27-1-2, 17 KOS), who has won four fights in a row, has a tough task ahead of him in his biggest fight when he challenges world titleholder Takashi Uchiyama (23-0-1, 19 KOs) on Dec. 31 in Tokyo. "I've worked hard my whole life with the goal of becoming a world champion someday," Flores said. "I'm very determined to show the boxing world and everyone in the division that I've arrived. Uchiyama is the champion and he's fighting in his backyard, which is going to be a difficult task to for me to come out victorious. But I've always believed that I would be a world champion and that reality will come true on Dec. 31."
