Falcao-Farias is scheduled for ten rounds for the WBC Latino Super Middleweight title.

“We are pleased to have Yamaguchi and Connor back in the ring,” said their promoter Jody Caliguire of Fire Fist Boxing Promotions. “The Boston metropolitan area has a huge Irish and Brazilian population so the turnout should be great!”
