Jackson, boasting a record of 19-1 with 12 KOs, steps back into the squared circle from Atlanta, with his sights set on staking his claim among the super bantamweight contenders. Last seen dispatching Donny Garcia in their 2018 rematch—a bout Jackson had initially clinched by decision—he’s currently riding a wave of three consecutive wins following a rare setback in 2020. This streak includes a notable victory over the resilient Yonatan Guzman Pena, setting the stage for a Top Rank-promoted event in New York City.

Bastar, with a tally of 18-2-1 and 9 KOs, hails from Cancun, Mexico, and is on a quest for redemption after only his second career setback—the first since his professional debut in 2014. Before succumbing to Jose Ramirez Maciel in his latest appearance, the southpaw had amassed a trio of knockout victories. With a notable advantage in height and reach, Bastar aims to mark his U.S. debut with a win.
