Among the featured fighters are:

• El Paso’s own Adan “Tejanito” Hernandez has compiled a 15-8 record and has faced a who’s who of key fighters, including 2008 Olympic bronze medalist Yordenis Urgas and current WBC welterweight champion Danny “Swift” Garcia.

• Josue Garcia, the popular California fighter with a 5-4 record, will face Las Cruces veteran Colbert Lozoya (7-12).
