This is according to fightnews.com Montiel will be defending his World Boxing Organization (WBO) title against former world champion Martin Castillo. World Boxing Council (WBC) champion Mijares will be defending his title against three-time world title challenger Jose Navarro. Hearns will go toe-to-toe against Juan Astorga in an eight-round junior middleweight bout.

Honestly, I am very disappointed. I figured that since the card is already a PPV they would at least build a solid undercard. Mijares is the only interesting fight for me on there, and I don't really find him too interesting. I give that card a 3/10 honestly and I was expecting a solid 7/10 at worst.

Ya its hard to disagree that this is a great card. Its interesting to watch hearns since I have only seen clips of him, and Mijares, Castillo and Montiel are all world class fighters and definitly the elite in their weight division

I hate the card personally. I like to see at least one guy that I really care about on undercards. For this fight that is not the case and is the reason I am going to sell my tickets upon reciept.

Undercard does seem a little weak .. besides for Mijares .. Either way I am getting this fight to see Pavlik of course that fight is worth my $50 alone.. The undercard can change correct? even though there is such little time ..

You serious? For anybody that follows boxing Montiel-Castillo is an outstanding match up. That can easily be a main event on Boxing After Dark. And than you add Mijares against a live opponent in Navarro. And a look at Ronald Hearns. What more you want? I follow all the weight classes. Not just the big names. So for me this is a 8/10 card.

Any heavyweights? LHW's or SMW's? There the divisions i enjoy most.
