Edison Miranda is also on the ticket. He has a Rocky-esque, come-from-nothin' story that began in Buenaventura, Colombia, where he came up from street life to become an amateur national champion and Olympic bronze medallist. He has a reputation as a hard-punching slugger, but a tendency for sloppy defense has cost him in the past.
The fights start at 7:30 p.m. at Hard Rock Live, inside Seminole Paradise at One Seminole Way in Hollywood. Tickets range from $22 to $152, and can be purchased at ticketmaster.com.
