Two of the bouts added to the card will serve as alternate fights for the 135-pound tournament in the event a winner of the quarterfinal bouts is unable to advance to the semifinal stage. In the first alternate bout, Levy Saul Marroquin (8-2) will take on Alejandro Abomohor (5-4), and in the second, Felipe Vargas (4-0) will face off against Jose Calvo (3-1).

The third bout added to the card is a women’s atomweight matchup involving Sheila Padilla (3-1) and Lisbeth Lopez Silva (4-3).
