Nashville, Tennessee lightweight Austin Dulay will fight in front of his hometown crowd when he takes on Diego Magdaleno in a ten-round fight that opens a Fox / Fox Deportes on Saturday, February 15th at the Bridgestone Arena. The show will be headlined by IBF super middleweight champion Caleb "Sweethands'' Plant defending his title in a homecoming bout against mandatory challenger Vincent Feigenbutz of Germany. Plus, welterweights Bryant "Goodfella" Perrella and Abel Ramos battle in a ten rounder.
The 33 year-old Magdaleno (31-3, 13 KOs) has twice challenged for a world title and will look for a signature victory on February 15th to get closer to another chance at a belt. The Las Vegas native previously dropped title fights against Roman Martinez and Terry Flanagan. Magdaleno won three straight fights between 2016 and 2018, including a triumph over Art Hovhannisyan, and most recently lost to lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez in February 2019.
Nashville's Dulay (13-1, 10 KOs) has won back-to-back fights by stoppage since his lone pro defeat to Chris Colbert in April 2018. The 24-year-old has fought professionally since 2015 and won his first 11 fights. He most recently scored a TKO victory over Yardley Armenta Cruz in February of last year, and his last time in the ring saw him battle Justin Pauldo in a fight that was later changed to a no contest. He will return to fight in Nashville for the first time since a 2017 victory.
