A three-bout streaming presentation on the Showtime Sports YouTube channel and Showtime Boxing Facebook page will take place this Saturday from Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. In the featured bout, super welterweight Vito Mielnicki Jr.(13-1, 8 KOs) battles Omar Rosales (9-1-1, 5 KOs) in an 8/10-round super welterweight clash. The action will also see rising undefeated super lightweight knockout artist Brandun Lee (26-0, 22 KOs) in an eight-rounder against Diego Luque (21-10-2, 10 KOs), and unbeaten Travon Marshall (5-0, 4 KOs) against Shawn West (7-2-1, 4 KOs) in a six-round super welterweight matchup.
The live streaming fights will precede a Showtime PPV telecast headlined by Gervonta “Tank” Davis defending his WBA lightweight title against unbeaten world champion Héctor Luis García.
The non-televised undercard will include both Peterson brothers.
Former two-division champion Lamont Peterson takes on Michael Ogundo in a six-round super lightweight fight, while his brother and once-beaten contender Anthony Peterson steps in to face Raul Chirino in a six-round super lightweight tilt.
Rounding out the card is Keeshawn Williams (10-1-1, 2 KOs) in a six-round welterweight bout against Gustavo David Vittori (26-11-1, 12 KOs), super welterweight Jalil Hackett (4-0, 3 KOs) dueling Joel Guevara (4-8-1, 3 KOs) in a four-rounder, and super middleweight Kyrone Davis (16-3-1, 6 KOs) facing Cristian Fabian Rios (23-15-3, 7 KOs) in an eight-round matchup.
Plus, Gervonta Davis-stablemate and once-beaten lightweight prospect Mia Ellis will step into the ring against Karen Dulin in a four-round.
Kind of disappointed that Lamont Peterson is coming back. He had given it his best shot and had taken quite a bit of punishment in his last two fights, almost four years ago now. Seemed a nice point to call it a day. Now nearly 39 and he wants to make another run. I’ve got no problem with his fighting guys like this, but I can’t imagine he came back to stay at this level.
At this rate they’ll be matching Brandun Lee against blind kindergarteners. The only dangerous opponent he faced dropped him HARD so they won’t be making that mistake again.
Thank you, Boxing gods……
WBC: the boxing gods.
Brandon Lee must be a hype job.. 26-0 with 22 kos fighting an 8 rounder? Against a fighter nobody has heard of with a 21-10 record? Makes Jamie Mungia look like a big risk taker.
Maybe he’s taking his time, we have all seen what happens when a boxer is moved up too early.
I agree with you and he’s only 23, but he’s probably fought quite a few opponents who were better than the one he has here. Either their first choice fell out or that knockdown in his last fight REALLY scared them.
Probably the second. They are probably trying to build his confidence up after that KD.
Oh When, Oh When…. will PBC make an actual competitive fight again?????
Brandun Lee has 26 fights and is fighting an 8 rounder, what a joke. Both Petersons are a bit long in the tooth, overdue to hang them up. Lamont was skillful in his day but didn’t have the KO power, Anthony had better power but wasn’t as skillful
