The show, which will be broadcast on TeleFutura’s “Sólo Boxeo Tecate” will be headlined by Newark’s undefeated prospect, Michael “The Artist” Perez (13-0-1, 7KO’s). Fighting in the co-feature, will be the Bronx’s must-see 18-year-old boxing phenom, Eddie Gomez (5-0, 4KO’s) as he looks to impress in his hometown debut.
