While the world’s top boxer, Las Vegan Floyd Mayweather, sits behind bars, a pair of up-and-coming pugilists plan to carry the sport for Las Vegas into the future—and they just happen to be brothers. Diego Magdaleno, 25 (pictured right), and Jesse Magdaleno, 20, are undefeated siblings quickly ascending the ranks. The elder Magdaleno (22-0, 7 KOs), named after Argentina soccer star Diego Maradona, won the NABF super featherweight title in January 2011 and has defended the belt four times. Little bro Jesse might be even better. A standout amateur who likely would be in London for the Olympics right now had he not turned pro, Jesse (10-0, 7 KOs) is undefeated in the super bantamweight division. You can catch both of them on back-to-back nights at Texas Station, Aug. 3 and 4.
