Mike Lee, Delvin Rodriquez, Mike Jones and Pawel Wolak pose during a press conference to announce their feature fights on the upcoming undercard of the Miguel Cotto-Antonio Margarito world championship card on December 3 at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Wolak and Rodriguez will reprise their “Fight of the Year” candidate clash from July; Jones (25-0, 19 KOs), the #1-rated contender, will be defending his titles in a 12-round IBF welterweight title elimination bout against Sebastian Lujan (38-5-2, 24 KOs); Lee (7-0, 4 KOs), the nationally-popular University of Notre Dame graduate, will be making his New York debut.

It was also officially announced that WBA lightweight world champion Brandon Rios will be defending his belt for the second time against John Murray.

Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum announced that there are less than 4,000 tickets remaining. The card will also be seen live on pay-per-view.
