Glen Tapia, a rising force at 154 who served as a sparring partner to Manny Pacquaio, faces Antonio Infante. Tapia is strong, powerful, and been seen on undercards of many high profile Top Rank fights.
Jose Peralta Alejo, who fights under the Main Events banner, will get more ring experience. He has already fought once in 2012, with another planned fight in June.
Mikael Zewski, a former Golden Boy athlete, is also featured on the card. Not from the area, Zewski hails from Canada. The light middleweight continues to build his name as he chooses to fight in many venues in different locations. He is smart and decent power.
