GBP on ESPN Hits Indio Tonight – Golden Boy Promotions closes out a busy week with fights at the Fantasy Springs Casino and on ESPN this Thursday night.
The main event was to feature GBP product Diego De La Hoya (20-0) opposing Jose Salgado (35-4-1), but De La Hoya was unable to come in at the already inflated contract weight of 124 pounds and the fight was scrapped.
The vacant WBA North American title at super featherweight is on the line between Carlos Morales and Dardan Zenunaj. A second 10-rounder comes to us at featherweight and features GBP talent Joet Gonzalez as he looks to remain undefeated against veteran Isao Carranza. The live event at the Fantasy Springs has eight fights scheduled with a lot of GBP talent at different points in their young careers.
GBP was in Los Angeles earlier this week for kick-off press conferences backing their January 27th event at the Forum that features Lucas Matthysse and Jorge Linares in world title fights. Catch footage from the L.A. pressers at “Matthysse vs Kiram Live Press Conference.”
Tonight’s Indio card appears below. You can look for the pair of 10-rounders on the ESPN broadcast. Check your local listings for start times.
