Undefeated featherweight phenom, Mario Barrios (8-0, 4 KOs), makes his way back to the ring on Saturday night at the State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Texas.

Fighting in a 6-round bout, Barrios will face a veteran of 42 fights in Arturo Herrera (11-30-1, 6 KOs).

Towering over his opponents standing 6’1, Barrios has an electrifying style, one the fans look forward too. Managed by Al Haymon, Barrios will look to use his height and reach advantage against Herrera and remain unbeaten.

“Fighting in Texas is something I look forward to being that I’m from San Antonio,” said Mario Barrios, “I’ll have plenty of family and friends making their way out to State Farm Arena tomorrow night to see me fight. I want to thank Haymon Boxing for giving me another great opportunity to showcase my talent in front of my people. I’m going to go in there and dictate my game plan. I’ll definitely be throwing some bombs!”
