A National Golden Gloves and two-time United States amateur champion, 22-year-old Ronny Rios (17-0, 8 KO’s) is not only on his way to matching his amateur success as a professional, but surpassing it with stellar performances throughout his young pro career. A prospect on the verge of big things, Rios followed up a stellar 2011 that included wins over Georgi Kevlishvili and Roger Gonzalez with a rousing start to 2012 that featured an impressive knockout over then 9-2 Jeremy McLaurin in February.

 

Known as the home to former World Champions Fernando Vargas, Robert Garcia and training camp base to numerous current champions, Oxnard is now proudly represented by promising up-and-comer Hugo “The Boss” Centeno (12-0, 6 KO’s). A professional since 2009, the 21-year-old went 6-0 in 2011 and began 2012 in fine fashion with a near shutout win over Octavio Narvaez on February 25 in Port Hueneme, California.

 

A native of Mexico City who now fights out of Provo, Utah, 33-year-old Gerardo Cesar Prieto (7-12-1) will have an upset on his mind when he faces Centeno on April 7. A professional since 2003, Prieto has shared the squared circle with a wide array of prospects, contenders and champions, including Andre Berto, Vanes Martirosyan, Mikael Zewski and Jermell Charlo. Coming off of a November decision win over Eric Hernandez, Prieto is planning on making it two in a row against Centeno.
