Oscar Valdez v. Andres Gutierrez, 10
junior lightweights

Freakishly-skilled featherweight Óscar Valdez (26-0, 20 KO), who represented Mexico at the 2012 Summer Olympics as a bantamweight (54 kg), is one of the hottest up-and-comers in boxing and presumably a can't miss star. He also boasts wins over Scott Quigg and Evgeny Gradovich.

The top ranked Mexican featherweight, Valdez, 28, is BoxRec's No.4 fighter in the division behind Josh Warrington, Carl Frampton, and Gary Russell Jr. Shakur Stevenson is No. 7.

Andres Gutierrez is a tough customer and boasts a fine record of 38-2-1, 25 KO. The 26 year old has never been KO'd.

Alexander Besputin v Radzhab Butaev
weltwerweights; vacant WBA welterweight title

It's a fringe title as Manny Pacquiao is the true (or Super) WBA welterweight champion. However, because the winner will have a world title expect him to be targeted by Danny Garcia, Keith Thurman, Mikey Garcia, Amir Khan and Shawn Porter.

Anthony Mundine v John Wayne Parr
middleweights or super middleweights

We aren't finished yet...Aussie legend Anthony Mundine (48-9, 28 KO) climbs back into the ring to face John Wayne Parr (10-3, 10 KO). At 44, Mundine has been an Australian staple in boxing for years. In addition to his two fights with Danny Green, Mundine, campaigning from junior middleweight to light heavyweight, has shared the ring with the likes of Shane Mosley, Daniel Geale, Bronco McKart, Garth Wood, Joshua Clottey and Sam Soliman.

Will this fight be Mundine's last? He hinted it very well could be.

"I was 50-50 with fighting again, but me being so competitive, I didn't want to leave on that note," Mundine told Sporting News... I didn't want to have that as my legacy."

Robert Helenius v Mateus Roberto Osorio
heavyweights

Let's rewind to 2011 when Helenius is the hottest up-and-coming heavyweight in boxing. Remember all of the comparisons to the Klitschko brothers? Remember his highlight reel knockout over Sam Peter?

Robert Helenius (28-3, 17 KO), now 35, was a top 5 contender prior to undergoing extensive surgery in 2012 after snapping a ligament in his right shoulder following a hard fall while running. Other ligaments were damaged too so parts of his collarbone also needed reconstruction. The initial prognosis for a successful return to boxing was not good and Helenius has struggled since.

At 35, can the 6'7" heavyweight get back into the mix?

Danny Williams v Mehmed Crnalic
heavyweights

Yes, it's that Danny Williams. And yes, he's 46. Remember when, after almost getting KO's early, he upset a faded Mike Tyson in 2004? He's 53-28, 40 and has lost his last two fights via KO and is a journeyman these days. How far can he go?

Williams fight
Did Williams win this? He looks SO bad these days and can't even keep his balance when throwing a right hand (which he hardly ever does these days) that the brain damage is more than a little noticeable. Hit him with a stiff jab and his legs go. Desperately sad to watch... hope he gives it up soon.
