The exciting, eagerly anticipated two-stage, single-elimination tournament begins tomorrow/Saturday, Dec. 11, on SHOWTIME at 9 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast) at Emerald Queen. In the opening 12-round bout on the telecast, two-time division titlist HyeFighter Vic Darchinyan (35-2-1, 27 KOs) and undefeated, world-ranked Abner Mares (29-0-1) will clash for the World Boxing Council Silver Belt.

International Boxing Federation 118-pound champion Yonnhy Perez (20-0-1, 14 KOs) will defend against former IBF belt-holder and the boxer he dethroned, Joseph Agbeko (27-2, 22 KOs), in the second fight.
