Australian prospect Wale Omotoso (20-0, 17KOs) will face the very green Nestor Ramos (2-1, 1KO) on the undercard of Top Rank’s “Welcome to the Future” fight card. The main event will feature a doubleheader with a WBC middleweight title bout with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (44-0-1, 31KOs) vs. Marco Antonio Rubio (53-5-1, 46KOs) and Nonito Donaire (27-1, 18KOs) vs. Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. (21-1-1, 18KOs) in the junior featherweight division. The main event will air on HBO World Championship Boxing at 9pm central.
At twenty-six years of age, Omotoso has seen a mix of inexperienced and veteran fighters in the ring, but has yet to face much skilled competition. In his last fight, he took a UD win over Larnado Tyner in an exciting matchup (read a recap of the bout here). Saturday will be his fourth fight outside of Australia, and his third in the United States; his opponent, Mexican fighter Ramos, will be making his fourth appearance as a professional fighter.
The fight card will also feature six other bouts on the undercard including Vanes Martirosyan (31-0, 19KOs) vs. Troy Lowry (28-11, 17KOs) in the junior middleweight division. All fights will take place in San Antonio, Texas at the Alamodome with doors opening at 6:30pm central.
