Stafford, Texas-based Yoenis Tellez (7-0, 6 KOs) won his previous bout last December by knockout in the 10th round against Livan Navarro and secured his fourth win for the year. Prior to that, the 23-year-old native of Santiago de Cuba stopped Sergio Garcia in the third round, earned a UD against Cameron Krael and TKO’d Alberto Delgado in Round 2.

Joseph Jackson (19-0, 15 KOs) was in action last November, when he KO’d Dedrick Bell in the fifth round. In September 2022, the 25-year-old native of Greensboro, North Carolina eliminated Anthony Lenk in the third round.

Also set for the event an eight-round lightweight rematch between Alexander Rios Vega (8-1-0, 3 KOs) of Bayamon, Puerto Rico and Benigno Aguilar (11-0-1, 4 KOs) of Jacksonville, Florida. The pair first met at MVP 5: Sylve vs Falcao last October also in Orlando, where the latter took the win by split decision.

Saint Cloud, Florida-based Vega returned to the win column in March in Tampa, where he earned a unanimous decision against Marcello Williams. In his previous outing in February, 24-year-old Aguilar fought Corey Marksman to a split draw.

Also on the MVP 6 card, Jan Paul Rivera-Pizarro (8-0, 5 KOs) of Ponce, Puerto Rico and David Perez (9-0, 2 KOs) of Tulsa, Oklahoma square off in the six-round bout at featherweight. Unbeaten 22-year-old Rivera-Pizarro defeated Leandro Novas Sanchez by unanimous decision last time out in December 2023. Unbeaten 26-year-old Perez was in action also late last year, when he scored a UD against Eduardo Aguirre.

Other bouts featured on the card are expected to be confirmed shortly.
