Lara (24-2-2, 14 KOs), a 34-year-old Cuban southpaw who defected and fights out of Houston, will defend his belt for the sixth time when he faces 2012 U.S. Olympian Terrell Gausha (20-0, 9 KOs), 29, of Cleveland, in the main event.

In the co-feature, Jermell Charlo (29-0, 14 KOs), 27, of Houston, will make his second title defense when he takes on 2016 ESPN.com prospect of the year Erickson Lubin (18-0, 13 KOs), 22, of Orlando, Florida, who is taking a monumental step up in opposition level.

Trout, whose biggest win came by decision in an upset over Miguel Cotto in a 2012 junior middleweight world title fight, challenged then-titleholder Jermall Charlo (Jermell's twin brother) for his belt in his last fight and lost a clear decision.
