  Undefeated Super Lightweight Contenders Antonio Orozco & Keandre Gibson Top April 1 Golden Boy Boxing On ESPN At The Chelsea

Someone's "0" must go, as undefeated and WBC #1 ranked Super Lightweight Antonio "Relentless" Orozco (25-0, 16 KOs) from San Diego, California faces one of his toughest tests to date on April 1 when he goes head-to-head with highly touted prospect KeAndre "The Truth" Gibson (16-0-1, 7 KOs) out of St. Louis, Missouri.

ESPN Deportes will transmit the fights live from The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas at 9 p.m. EST/6 p.m. PST with ESPN2 airing it at 11 p.m. EST.

"This 50/50 main event will help determine the future of the super lightweight division," said Oscar De La Hoya, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. "I expect the winner of this fight will be positioned for world championship titles in the near-future and the loser will find himself back in the pack of the division. Everything is on the line for both of these fighters."

In the chief support to the April 1 show in Las Vegas, longtime lightweight contender Mercito "No Mercy" Gesta (29-1-2, 16 KOs) fighting out of San Diego, California returns for the first time in more than a year where he'll find Mexico City knockout specialist Gilberto "El Flaco" Gonzalez (26-3, 22 KOs) on the other side of the ring for a 10-round showdown.

Highly touted and undefeated Golden Boy prospects Joet Gonzalez (15-0, 7 KOs), Emilio Sanchez (13-0, 8 KOs) and Edgar Valerio (9-0, 5 KOs) are also scheduled to appear on the card.
