Avalos will face Rey Perez of the Philippines on Top Rank's Solo Boxeo Tecate - UniMas on Saturday, August 1.

Top Rank made the announcement today.

Magdaleno was injured in sparring in Las Vegas last Thursday. "I caught a sparring partner with a nice right hook on  the top of his head. That punch caused a lot of pain in my right hand. When I took my glove off I had swollen knuckles on the hand. I hate not fighting but I will be back as soon as I can."

Avalos, 25-3, 19 KOs, is ranked IBF #9. He last fought in a world title fight on February 28 in Belfast, Ireland, where he was stopped by world champion Carl Frampton in the fifth round.

"No excuses. I just got caught. I trained hard for that title fight and would like to get a rematch. That's my goal. But Rey Perez is next. I've seen video of a couple of his fights so I know what he is all about. Even though I wasn't scheduled to fight I had been training for quite awhile when my manager Mike Criscio got the call for our team to head to Texas."

Avalos vs Perez is scheduled for 8 rounds. In the opening televised bout the very popular super featherweight Casey Ramos, 19-0, 5 KOs, of Austin, Texas will take on Daniel Evangelista Jr., 17-5-1, 13 KOs in an eight round bout. Casey has been training primarily in Austin with sparring in San Antonio.

Florida puncher Clarence Booth, 11-1, 7 KOs, will be in action on the card. He is a welterweight. Eric DeLeon, a 9-0, 4 KO lightweight, of Detroit is also scheduled to box.

There will be seven bouts on the Top Rank card.
