The 32-year-old  Guerrero  out  of  Gilroy, California  owns  victories  over  Andre Berto,  Selcuk  Aydin and  Michael  Katsidis. He most recently electrified fans  with an  exciting performance  against Keith Thurman  on the inaugural  PBC card on March  7  of this  year.  A  former world  champion in  four  weight  classes,  Guerrero  looks  to  put  on  another  outstanding  performance on  June 6 at  StubHub  Center.

Born  in  Uruapan, Michoacan  de  Ocampo, Mexico,  but  fighting  out  of  East  Los  Angeles,  Martinez  makes his  StubHub Center debut  on  June  6.  The 33-year-old  turned  pro in  2005  and won his first  seven  starts before  a technical draw  in 2007 against Vito  Gaspayran.  A  tough  fighter  Martinez strung  together  10  straight  victories between 2009  and  2012..

The 34-year-old  Arreola  defeated  Curtis Harper in  a thrilling  heavyweight  showdown  on  March  13  in Ontario, Calif. Born  in Escondido, Calif.  but  fighting  out  of  Los  Angeles, Arreola  has long  been  one  of  the most  feared  punchers  in  the  heavyweight division.  Having  challenged  the  best  in  the  division,  Arreola knows  what it  takes to succeed  at this level  and looks to entertain his hometown  fans  on  June 6.

A  hard  fighting Mexican  warrior  born  in  Mexicali,  Baja California, Mexico  but  fighting  out  of  Coachella, Calif.,  Angulo  is looking  for  a  big  victory in front  of  his adopted  hometown  fans.  Always  ready to  challenge the best in  the sport, the  32-yearold  has gone toe-to-toe  with  some  of  the best  fighters in  the  world and  holds knockout victories  over Gabriel Rosado, Joachim Alcine  and Joel Julio.

A fast-rising  star  out  of  Buenos  Aires,  Argentina,  Cuellar  looks to  make  it 10  victories in  a  row when  he  battles Darchinyan on  June  6.  His  power in  both  hands  has  led  him  to  six  knockouts  of  his  last  nine  victories  including a  second  round  destruction of  Puerto Rican  icon  Juan  Manuel  Lopez in  Sept.  2014. The 28-year-old  will  make  his  first career start  in  California  when  he enters the  ring  at StubHub Center.

Looking  to  put  himself back  into  the  discussion  of  top  featherweights,  the  39-year-old  Darchinyan  comes  in  with  the kind  of experience  to  topple  the  explosive  Cuellar.  A former world champion, the fighter  from  Armenia who  fights  out  of  Glendale, California is  coming off  of  a  ninth-round  TKO  over  Juan  Jimenez in  February  of  this  year.  Having  fought  against  top contenders  such  as Abner  Mares,  Nonito Donaire and  Nicholas  Walters, Darchinyan  also  owns  victories  over  Yonnhy  Perez, Jorge  Arce and Cristian Mijares.
