Mauricio Lara vs Emilio Sanchez
Mauricio Lara (23-2-1 16 KOs) welcome back to the ring after his poor cut in rematch with Josh Warrington.

The 27-year-old California will be looking to produce his own upset in the biggest fight of his eight-year career so far, as Sanchez fought over ten rounds for the second time in his career. He entered the fray after his 12th KO win in May over experienced Christian Esquivel.
