Garcia-Velez set, O’Sullivan REJECTS Golovkin clash

Unbeaten Ryan “Kingry” Garcia (14-0, 13 KOs) headlines an ESPN2-televised Golden Boy Boxing on May 4 at StubHub Center in Carson, California. Hot prospect Garcia faces seasoned Puerto Rican contender Jayson “La Maravilla” Velez (26-4-1, 18 KOs) in a 10-round super featherweight. Velez is coming off a stoppage win over former world champ “Juanma” Lopez.

In the co-main event, middleweight Gary “Spike” O’Sullivan (27-2, 19 KOs) will make his Southern California debut in a 10-rounder against TBA. That TBA will not be WBC/WBA/IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin. O’Sullivan was rumored to be in the mix to step in for Canelo Alvarez, who withdrew from a rematch with GGG after an adverse drug test. But O’Sullivan has reportedly rejected fighting for the world championship on HBO and will instead opt for a lower profile undercard bout against an undetermined opponent on ESPN2.

Also scheduled are welterweight Alexis “Lex” Rocha (11-0, 8 KOs), super welterweight Ferdinand Kerobyan (8-0, 4 KOs) and super welterweight Richard “Kansas Kid” Acevedo (1-0, 1 KO).
