Former junior welterweight title contender Alex Saucedo (29-1, 19 KOs) returns to the ring for the first time in almost eight months to face Sonny Fredrickson (21-2, 14 KOs), in the main event of a Top Rank boxing card at the MGM Grand Conference Center in Las Vegas on Tuesday (ESPN, ESPN Deportes, 8 p.m. ET).
But before that, a few good prospects will showcase their skill on the undercard.
In the co-main event, junior welterweight Josue Vargas (16-1, 9 KOs) hopes to extend his 10-fight unbeaten streak when he takes on Salvador Briceno (17-5, 11 KOs) in a 10-round battle.
Larry Fryers (11-2, 4 KOs) meets John Bauza (13-0, 5 KOs) in an eight-round junior welterweight bout, and unbeaten prospect Donte Stubbs (6-0, 2 KOs) faces Isiah Jones in a six-round middleweight fight.

Fight recap coming up …
Jones outpoints Stubbs, wins majority decision
In the opening bout of the night, middleweight Isiah Jones earned a six-round majority decision over the previously unbeaten Donte Stubbs by the scores of 57-57, 58-56 and 59-55.
Jones (9-2, 3 KOs) — who lost a decision two weeks ago against Nikoloz Sekhniashvili — boxed from the outside for most of the fight, while Stubbs (6-1, 2 KOs) was in the center of the ring as he came forward and threw the more forceful punches. But neither man ever really gained control of the bout. Exchanges were rare, and neither man was hurt in this contest.
At the end, Jones outlanded Stubbs 53-44 in total punches to get his hands raised in victory.
