Undefeated prospects hit Fox Sports 1 July 25

Mexican bantamweight phenomenon Ivan Morales looks to secure his twenty-sixth victory without a loss on Friday, July 25 when he faces off against countryman Sergio "Finito" Frias in the co-main event of FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes' Golden Boy Live! fight night at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif.


On hand for all the action will be the legendary Erik "El Terrible" Morales who will cheer on his brother Ivan and meet and greet fans as the evening's special VIP guest.


In the main event, unbeaten junior welterweight Frankie "Pitbull" Gomez will be pushed to the limit by veteran contender Vernon Paris and opening up the televised portion of the card will be an eight-round middleweight bout between 2012 U.S. Olympian Terrell Gausha and Oklahoma's Ronnie Warrior Jr.


Three hot prospects will put their perfect professional records on the line this week as well, with Racine, WI featherweight Mario Barrios (4-0, 1 KO) facing Salvador Perez (2-4-2, 1 KO) of Campeche, Mexico, Buenos Aires junior welterweight Damian Sosa (7-0, 6 KOs) will make his professional U.S. debut against Ryan Picou (1-3) of Los Angeles in a six-round junior welterweight bout and and North Hollywood native Vyacheslav Shabranskyy (9-0, 8 KOs) will face Demetrius Walker (7-5-1, 4 KOs) of Kansas City.


A respected amateur standout who competed in the 2012 U.S. Olympic trials, Fort Myers, Florida's Bryant Perrella (5-0, 4 KOs) has stopped four of his five professional opponents thus far, most recently halting previously unbeaten Benito Tovar in a single round in May. On Friday, he will seek his third victory of 2014 against 26-year-old Philadelphian Christian Steele (4-8-2, 1 KO), who is unbeaten in two of his last three.


In middleweight action, popular Palmdale, Calif. resident Neeco Macias (5-0, 1 KO) looks to make it six straight in a four-round bout against Inglewood's Robert Hill (1-5) and in the four-round super middleweight opener, Nashville, Tenn. native Caleb Plant (3-0, 1 KO) faces Los Angeles' Ryan True (1-1-1, 1 KO).
