Golden Boy Promotions has announced it will play host to a Showtime tripleheader to be contested April 26 at StubHub Center in Carson.
The main event will feature Keith “One Time” Thurman defending his interim welterweight title against Julio Diaz.
Also, Omar Figueroa will defend his lightweight title against Jerry Belmontes. And John Molina of Covina will take on former junior welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse in a 10-round fight. Molina (27-3, 22 KOs) and Matthysse (34-3, 32 KOs) have 54 knockouts between them, so that figures to be a fight that does not go the distance.
“I am excited to showcase myself against someone that I consider to be one of the best fighters in the world at 140 pounds,” said Molina, who has campaigned mostly as a lightweight. He is a graduate of Charter Oak High.
