For the third week in a row, lightweights take center stage.
Friday night is slow, but boxing action heats up bigtime on Saturday.
- On ESPN, former world champions Vasiliy Lomachenko and Richard Commey collide inside the “Big Room” at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. The 33-year-old Loma is currently an 8:1 favorite.
- On Showtime, WBC bantamweight champ Nonito Donaire will defend his belt against Reymart Gaballo at the “War Grounds” aka Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.
- On DAZN, unbeaten welterweight Conor Benn faces former champ Chris Algieri at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.
- There is also a world title twin bill in Dubai. WBO bantamweight champ John Riel Casimero defends against Paul Butler and IBF flyweight champ Sunny Edwards defends against Jayson Mama. Ex-champ Donnie Nietes vs. Norbelto Jimenez is also on that card. The card, which marks the debut of Richard Schaefer’s Probellum, will likely be streamed somewhere. Stay tuned for info.
