Maldonado Jr. vs. Hovhannisyan will air on Estrella TV
On Friday, May 20, Albuquerque’s top boxer Fidel Maldonado Jr. will take on Art Hovhannisyan at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California.
The 10-round fight is currently set to be the co-main event on the televised (Estrella TV) Golden Boy Promotions undercard headlined by welterweights Eddie Gomez (18-1, 11 KOs) who hails out of the Bronx, New York and John Karl Sosa (13-1, 6 KOs) of Puerto Rico.
Hovhannisyan (17-2, 9KOs), is a familiar Albuquerque foe having taken on then undefeated lightweight prospect Archie Ray Marquez in June of 2011, a bout which the Armenian won via devastating knockout.
The 24-year-old, Maldonado Jr. (21-3, 18KOs), a winner of his last two bouts, looks for his first victory over a formidable opponent since a November 2013 win over Luis Ramos Jr.
