- Updated: May 12, 2014
The Miguel Cotto vs Sergio Martinez PPV now has an undercard for the June 7 showdown at Madison Square Garden.
In the co-main event, former world champion Wilfredo Vasquez Jr will meet Marvin Sonsora in a rematch of their 2010 fight. The bout will be a featherweight showdown.
Vasquez (23-3-1, 19 KO) is 2-2 in his last four fights. The two losses were a majority and split decision. Vasquez will be looking to earn another title shot with a victory.
On a four fight win streak, Sonsora (18-1-1, 15 KO) will get a chance the lone loss of his professional career to Vasquez.
Also announced was a bout between Jorge Melendez and former world champ Yuri Foreman.
Melendez (28-3-1, 26 KO) had his fast rise temporarily detailed when he lost a unanimous decision to Nick Brinson in June of 2013, but he has gotten things back on track with a two fight win streak.
In the his fifth fight since his two year absence from the sport, Foreman (32-2, 9 KO) has gone undefeated in his comeback trail. Melendez will no doubt be a step up in competition for Foreman.
The opening bout will feature a middleweight fight between Andy Lee and John Jackson.
Lee (32-2, 22 KO) has won four fights in a row since his loss to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr for the WBC middleweight title.
Jackson (18-1, 15 KO) is the son of former world champion Julian Jackson.
