INDIO, CALIF. (Dec. 20) –

FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes’ Golden Boy Live! series returns

to

Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif. on Friday, Jan. 24 to kick-off 2014 with a

hard-hitting main event featuring San Diego’s undefeated

Antonio “Relentless” Orozco as he

puts his undefeated record on the line against fellow power-puncher

Miguel Angel “El Anestesista” Huerta

of Ecatepec de Morelos, Mexico in a 10-round junior welterweight fight.

Also featured on the night of boxing will be a 10-round IBF Super Welterweight Final

Elimination bout between former World Champion

Cornelius “K9” Bundrage and Miami’s

Joey “Twinkle Fingers” Hernandez

.

Rapidly becoming one of the most intimidating fighters in the junior welterweight division,

 

Antonio “Relentless” Orozco

(18-0, 14 KO’s) stopped his last six opponents by way of

knockout, including veterans Ivan Hernandez and Jose Reynoso and fellow prospect Danny

Escobar. On Jan. 24, the 26-year-old from San Diego returns for his third appearance at Fantasy

Springs when he faces a rugged veteran in Huerta.

Hard-hitting southpaw

“El Anestesista” (27-11-1, 18 KO’s) has tested several top-notch

fighters over the years, with big wins over Daniel Alicea, Efren Hinojosa and Darling Jimenez

proving that when the bell rings, the Mexico City product is always ready for battle. The

always-tough Huerta is looking forward to upsetting Orozco.

Eager to prove his boxing life begins at 40, Detroit’s former World Champion

Cornelius “K9”

Bundrage

(32-5, 19 KO’s) is eager to defeat Joey Hernandez on Jan. 24 and put himself back in

line for a shot at becoming a world champion again. The former IBF 154-pound world

champion from 2010, when he knocked out Cory Spinks, to 2013 when he lost a controversial

majority decision to Ishe Smith, Bundrage plans on letting his heavy hands go and adding

another knockout to his record.

Miami southpaw

Joey “Twinkle Fingers” Hernandez (23-1-1, 13 KO’s) has long been one of

South Florida’s best-kept secrets. The winner of eight straight bouts, five by knockout, and

owner of the USBO and the WBC USNBC titles at 154 pounds, Hernandez is on the brink of a

shot at a world title. The 29-year-old is back in action after a victory over James Winchester in

November of last year and ready to take on Bundrage of Jan. 24.

 

Orozco vs. Huerta

is a 10-round junior welterweight bout presented by Golden Boy Promotions

and sponsored by Corona and O’Reilly Auto Parts. The FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes

broadcast airs live at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT.
