Fast-rising junior middleweight prospect Hugo “The Boss” Centeno (19-0, 10 KOs) of Oxnard, California continues his preparation, at the KO Boxing & Fitness Gym, as he is scheduled to face fellow undefeated fighter Julian “J Rock” Williams (13-0-1, 7 KOs) of Philadelphia on Thursday, September 12th in a 10-round junior middleweight bout at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada as part of a televised triple-header on FOX Sports which is being presented by Golden Boy Promotions.

In the main event that night, Shawn “Showtime” Porter (21-0-1, 14 KOs) faces former 2-time lightweight champion Julio “The Kidd” Diaz (40-8-1, 29 KOs) in a rematch. Also that night, super middleweight Badou Jack (15-0, 10 KOs) takes on Marco Antonio Periban (20-1, 13 KOs).

In his last outing, Centeno, who is managed by Joel De La Hoya, brother of 10-time world champion Oscar De La Hoya, defeated Isaac Mendez via first round knockout, needing only 46 seconds, of a scheduled 8-round bout this past July in Mexico.
