  • One of the best matchups in all of boxing right now. The winner of this fight needs to be listed in the Ring magazine top 10 pound-for-pound.

  • I love that this will be on ESPN! This is a pick em type fight, but promises action.

    There was a time that this level fight would be paired with a mega fight on PPV. While I’m thrilled to get this fight on ESPN, I definitely miss the higher quality cards we used to get for our PPV dollars.
