Golden Boy has put together a Lightweight grudge match for its next Thursday Night Fights show on DAZN, pitting Romero Duno against Juan Antonio Rodriguez on May 17th. Those of you without a subscription can also watch on RingTV.com

The 23-year-old Duno (19-1, 15 KO) has won 10 straight since a decision loss to Mikhail Alexeev, including decisions over Yardley Armenta Cruz and Gilberto Gonzalez. He’s got a bit of skin in this game, as Rodriguez (30-7, 26 KO) came back from nearly two years away to upset Duno’s friend and countryman Mercito Gesta in late March.

The card will also include featherweight Manny Robles III (17-0, 8 KO), son of the veteran trainer who shares his name, against Rigoberto Hermosillo (11-0-1, 8 KO). Robles has faced significantly stiffer opposition than Hermosillo and should be favored despite the similar records. TBA is double-booked against super featherweight Carlos Morales (17-4-3, 6 KO) and super welterweight Travell Mazion (14-0, 12 KO)
