McCrory (17-0, 9 KOs) made his pro debut in June 2017 with a
decision win over Jacob Lucas. He captured his first
regional title four years later with a fifth-round TKO
against Sergei Gorokhov. He defended it twice, including a
fifth-round TKO victory against former world title
challenger Marco Antonio Periban. In October 2022, the
35-year-old stopped then-unbeaten German contender Leon Bunn
in six rounds, and he’s coming off a 10-round decision win
over Diego Ramirez on the May undercard of the Luis Alberto
Lopez-Michael Conlan featherweight title showdown in
Belfast. Woodall (18-1-1, 11 KOs) is a nine-year pro who
suffered an early-career defeat against Steve Rolls in 2015.
He has not lost since. The 29-year-old is coming off an
eight-round decision win over Boris Crighton in April.

Cuevas (25-1-1, 17 KOs), an eight-year pro from Guaynabo,
Puerto Rico, captured his first regional title in December
2016 with a decision win over Daniel Sostre. Since then, the
28-year-old has only suffered one setback, a six-round split
decision loss to Damian Ezequiel Bonelli in December 2020.
He bounced back with a TKO win against Esneiker Correa two
years later and is coming off a second-round knockout
victory against Damian Rodriguez in April. Mosquera (28-5-2,
16 KOs) unsuccessfully challenged for an interim title
against unbeaten Brunet Zamora in October 2011. He’s since
fought a who’s who of welterweight standouts, including
Erick Bone, Sammy Vasquez and Rashidi Ellis. The 36-year-old
veteran returns after a six-round decision win against
Leonardo Espinal in February.
