Here is the detailed preview of the match

Light heavyweight contenders Vyacheslav Shabranskyy and Sullivan Barrera will meet in a 10-round bout in the main event of a Golden Boy Promotions card on Dec. 16, Oscar De La Hoya’s company announced on Wednesday.

The fight will top an HBO Latino-televised tripleheader (10 p.m. ET/PT) from the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California.

Although the bout is not an official title eliminator, Shabranskyy-Barrera is a de facto eliminator between two of the top 10 fighters at 175 pounds.

“Anyone who has heard me talk about Slava over the last few years knows that I’m extremely bullish on him winning a world championship in his next few fights,” De La Hoya said. “He can do anything in the ring. He’s got power in both hands, he moves incredibly well for a tall fighter and he has an incredible capacity to learn from his mistakes. With a win against Barrera, Slava will position himself for some very big things in 2017.”

Ukraine’s Shabranskyy (17-0, 14 KOs), 29, who lives in Los Angeles, is a rising contender who will be facing the most notable opponent of his career other than Yunieski Gonzalez, whom he upset by decision in December 2015.

“My goal is to win a world championship in the light heavyweight division, and Barrera is just another stepping stone on that path,” Shabranskyy said. “I am excited to make my second appearance on HBO Latino and look forward to fans seeing me get ready to take on any upcoming challenges in the ring.”

Barrera (17-1, 12 KOs), a 34-year-old Cuban defector based in Miami, is looking to bounce back from his first defeat, a lopsided 12-round decision to undefeated former super middleweight world champion Andre Ward on March 26.

“I’m looking forward to Dec. 16. My respect to Shabranskyy for agreeing to fight me,” Barrera said. “This will be a great fight for the fans.”

Said Kathy Duva of Main Events, Barrera’s promoter: “Sullivan gave Andre Ward the toughest fight Ward has had in years. A performance like that against one of the best fighters in the world is impressive. With the experience he gained and a new trainer [Derik Santos] to guide him, I think Sullivan has everything he needs to become a world champion. That journey starts with beating Slava Shabranskyy on Dec. 16.”
