- Updated: July 8, 2014
Los Angeles prospect Frankie Gomez will headline a fight card from Indio, California on July 25 as part of a Golden Boy Live! televised event.
Gomez, (17-0, 13 KO) will take on veteran Vernon Paris with Ivan Morales, the brother of legend Erik Morales, scheduled in the co-main event of the evening against an opponent to be determined.
“We are so proud of the success of the Golden Boy Live! series to date and July 25th will be no exception,” said Oscar De La Hoya, president and founder of Golden Boy Promotions.
“We are thrilled to provide a national television platform for rising stars such as Frankie Gomez and Vernon Paris to continue their mark on the sweet science.”’
A Detroit native, Paris’ only loss came at the hands of Zab Judah in 2012. Paris has had two fights since then, both victories; Gomez has yet to taste defeat and will look to enter himself into the 140 pound weight class, one of the deepest in the sport.
Morales will also enter into his bout undefeated and last fought in April.
