Danny Garcia headlines Solo Boxeo Tecate this Friday. The 22-year-old Phildelphia native faces tough journeyman John Figureoa in the eight-round main event at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel in San Diego.

Periban (10-0, 7 KOs), of Mexico city, is coming off of an 80 second knockout of normally durable spoiler Darnell Boone in December. Friday's card will be his United States debut.
Savage (10-0, 6 KOs), a 24-year-old amateur standout from Flint, Mich., is a protégé of renowned trainer Roger Mayweather.
