Ronny Rios will be featured in the main event of a Golden Boy Live! fight card on October 9, 2014 from Indio, California.
The undefeated junior lightweight takes on Robinson Castellanos for a scheduled 10 rounds and in the supporting bout, Antonio Orozco takes on veteran and former champion Steve Forbes.
“It’s always an exciting night when we can put on an event at Fantasy Springs and this will be no exception,” said Oscar De La Hoya, who will serve as a special VIP guest to fight fans in attendance.
“Ronny Rios and Antonio Orozco are two of this area’s most talented fighters and we’ll see if they’re ready for the next level on October 9. I’m also looking forward to seeing the new De La Hoya era take charge with my cousin Diego in the ring again and meeting everyone on fight night and talking about this great sport and what we can do to make it even better.”
The De La Hoya name carries on as Diego De La Hoya opens the telecast against an opponent to be named.
