Headlining the internationally televised SOLO BOXEO/Telefutura card is a ten
round junior welterweight showdown between Argentinean Carlos Weis, 30-4-3 (16KO's) of Los Angeles, CA and Mexican
Arturo Morua, 18-6-1 (13KO's) of Guadalajara, Mexico.
Weis is coming off a ten round
decision over Emanuel Augustus and also has a win over Hector Camacho Jr., on his record in addition to hotly
disputed decision losses to Zab Judah and Antonio Diaz.
Morua is coming over a very close
twelve round split decision loss to Wilfredo Negron this past June, a fight which saw the gutsy Mexican dropped
times in the first half of the fight before mounting a huge comeback, just barely losing a very
close fight to the former world title challenger.

co-main event as well as Illinois State Middleweight Champion "Macho" Miguel Hernandez, 12-1
