Austin, Texas-based Floyd Schofield (16-0, 12-KOs) brings to the ring his WBA International title. The 21-year-old native of Jersey City, New Jersey won four bouts in 2023, including the first-round TKO against Ricardo Lopez Torres last time out in December in Houston.

Las Vegas-based Esteuri Suero (13-1, 10 KOs) is coming off the win by knockout in the first round against Marlyn Cabrera late last year. In his U.S. debut in May 2023 in Las Vegas, the 23-year-old Dominican dropped a unanimous decision against Starling Castillo.

Also on the card, Victor Morales Jr (19-0-1, 9 KOs) of Vancouver, Washington takes on New York-based fellow-unbeaten Luis Reynaldo Nunez (19-0, 13 KOs) of Dominican Republic. The 10-round bout serves as the WBA featherweight title eliminator.

As well, Houston’s unified WBA, WBC, WBO flyweight champion Marlen Esparza (14-1, 1 KO) meets former WBO champion Gabriela Celeste Alaniz (14-1, 6 KOs) of Argentina in a 10-round rematch. Esparza won their first championship unification bout last July by majority decision.

The eight-round cruiserweight telecast opener pits Las Vegas-based Tristan Kalkreuth (12-1, 9 KOs) of Carollton, Texas against Marquice Weston (15-2-1, 8 KOs) of Tacoma, Washington. Kicking off the action, unbeaten Los Angeles-based Eric Priest (12-0, 8 KOs) of Wichita Falls, Texas goes through the ropes against opponent to be named in a 10-rounder at middleweight.

In the main event, Mexico’s William Zepeda (29-0, 25 KOs) and British southpaw Maxi Hughes square off in the IBF and WBA lightweight title eliminator. The bout is scheduled for 12 rounds.
