The twenty-five-year-old Krael (15-13-3, 4KOs) returns to the ring after a spectacular second round TKO performance over Michael Ogundo on January 17, 2019. The Hawaiian-born turned Las Vegas native had a short amateur career but quickly made a name for himself after signing with Mayweather Promotions in early 2017. Krael has proven to be a crowd favorite after facing some of the toughest opponents throughout his career including Jose Miguel Borrego who he defeated by majority decision on Sept. 22, 2018, Erick Bone which resulted in a close split decision in favor of Bone in May of 2018, a unanimous decision win over Gaku Takashi to kick-off 2018, and controversial draw against Shoki Sakai in October of 2017. His return to the ring marks his second fight in 2019 as he looks to add another victory to his resume over Angel Hernandez.
Twenty-seven-year-old Hernandez (15-12-2, 9KOs) returns to Sin City for the fourth time in his professional career. Since making his professional debut with an impressive TKO victory over Jesus Hernadez in 2010, the McAllen, Texas, native has been set on making a name for himself fighting top contenders in the welterweight division. The Mexican is coming off a unanimous decision win over Carlos Constantino and looks to continue his journey to a a title shot in the future.
Other streamed undercard bouts include Mayweather Promotions’ very own Sanjarbek “War” Rakhmanov, who aims to get his second straight victory in his eight-round matchup against Keith Hunter since losing to Marquis Taylor in a close unanimous decision victory in August 2018. The undefeated Hunter, who is the younger brother of former Olympian Michael Hunter, makes his return to Las Vegas after his professional debut at Sam’s Town on March 14, 2015. Kindamon Antoine, a recent signee to the Mayweather Promotions’ stable, looks to keep his 8-0 record intact with victory over Abur-Raheem Abdullah out of Colorado Springs, Colo. Las Vegas native Kevin Newman will battle it out in an eight-round super middleweight matchup against Mexico’s Caeser Ugarte, and opening the undercard action are welterweights Maurice Lee out of Sacramento, Calif. taking on an opponent soon to be announced in a six-round bout.
