Lee Baxter Promotions card finalized for Feb. 10

In early January, FightOn announced Logan McGuiness would be taking on Ulises Perez in the main event of Lee Baxter Promotions’ first card of the year. We also said Alex Dilmaghani and Morgan Hughes would both be competing.

Now we know the rest of the card for the Feb. 10 card, taking place live from the 17 Steakhouse in Mississauga.

Courtesy of BoxRec, the entire card is now available here.

Outside of the main event, Dilmaghani (16-1-0) will be taking on Bolivian’s top featherweight, Andy Almendras (14-7-1). The bout is expected to take place at 135lbs.

Three Lions Promotions’ fighter Kevin Higson (13-1-0) will take on Brazilian journeyman Jose Hilton Dos Santos (36-18-1) in what can be described as a ‘keep busy’ fight. Dos Santos has only defeated one opponent with a better than .500 record since 2009.

The first two bouts will feature young Canadian fighter debuting as professionals. Morgan Hughes, main sparring partner for Canadian lightweight champion Kane Heron, will debut against Mexican Francisco Hernandez (4-3-1). The bout is expected to take place at 135lbs., a weight Hernandez hasn’t fought at since 2014. Hernandez is 1-3 in his last four bouts, but is coming off of a TKO victory.

Welterweight Roland Jeffrey Membreno will also make his professional debut, taking on Mexican fighter Luic Alcarez (2-1). Alcarez has won two straight bouts, both in Mexico.
