LAS VEGAS (May 29, 2012) – On Saturday, June 2 two of the talent-rich welterweight division's top prospects, Joseph Elegele and Lanard Lane, will meet in the co-main event of the card headlined by the WBA Light Heavyweight World Championship fight between Beibut Shumenov and Enrique Ornelas at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nev., both of which will be televised live on FOX Sports Net and FOX Deportes, as well as on a delayed basis on FUEL TV.

Shumenov (12-1, 8 KO's) puts his WBA crown on the line against former super middleweight world title challenger Enrique Ornelas (33-7, 21 KO's) in the 12-round main event.

Shumenov vs. Ornelas is promoted by Golden Boy Promotions and KZ Event Productions and sponsored by Corona and DeWalt Tools.

A power puncher with five first round knockouts to his name, Winter Haven, Florida's Joseph Elegele (12-1, 10 KO's) delivers excitement every time he steps into the ring and Saturday night's fight gives him a chance to shine on the world stage. A professional since 2009, the 27-year-old southpaw is coming off of a controversial technical decision loss to fellow prospect Aaron Martinez in July of last year, and he can't wait to get back in the ring and get back in the win column.

A Philadelphia fighter to the core, 29-year-old Lanard Lane (13-1, 8 KO's) may make his home in Houston these days, but when the going gets tough, he is ready to throw down and make his fellow Philly warriors proud. The owner of wins over tough competitors like Dairo Esalas and John Brown, Lane bounced back from the lone loss of his professional career against Mike Dallas in 2010 by stopping Milton Ramos in eight rounds in March. Now he has his sights on a similar result against fellow prospect Elegele this weekend.

Hudaynazarov, fighting out of Las Vegas, is the reigning WBA FEDALATIN 147-pound champion and world rated No. 15 by the WBA. Known as a devastating body puncher, the former Uzbekistan amateur boxing standout and KZ Event Productions promoted rising star who turns 28 the night of the official weigh-in (Friday), steps-up in class to fight current WBO Latino welterweight champion Euri “Millon”Gonzalez (20-1-1, 14 KO's), whose only loss was to WBC Super Welterweight World Champion Canelo Alvarez, in an intriguing eight-round fight.

Seeing action in a televised undercard fight is rising middleweight prospect Daquan Arnett (3-0, 2 KO's) of Orlando, Florida who faces Yosmani Abreu (2-2-1) of Las Vegas in a four round bout.

Also featured will be featherweight Johnny Reyes (1-0, 1 KO), from Lancaster, Calif., who will square off against Uriel Torres, of Los Angeles, Calif. making his professional debut, in a four round fight and Russian middleweight Dmitry Chudinov (6-0-1, 3 KO's), who now resides in Winter Haven, Florida, who will battle an opponent to be determined in a six-round tilt.
