I lead the boxing challenge vs R.L.Malpica 31-22.
NBC finally has its first PBC card of the year with the one fighter that could be the future face of PBC facing his first top 15 type opponent and a cruiserweight title fight that could feature lots of action.
The talented Errol Spence steps up against Chris Algeri in what should be his introduction to solid opposition in a welterweight bout.
Spence is the one guy that could be a breakout star for PBC and tomorrow could be step one.
Krzystof Glowacki ended the long reign of Marco Huck in his last bout in an exciting win to lift the WBO cruiserweight title.
Now Glowacki defends against another former champion that had a long reign in Steve Cunningham,who returns from the heavyweights for a shot at a title in his old division.
This might be the best action of the weekend.
Showtime has two world title bouts of varying quality on their network.
Gary Russell starts his WBC featherweight title reign against the type of no-hope opponent that has marked his career in Patrick Hyland.
Russell is a talented fighter,who has seen his career filled with poor opposition and long periods of inactivity and this seems to be another case of the former.
Jose Pedraza defends his IBF Jr.lightweight belt against Stephen Smith of England in what could be a nice fight in the co-feature.
Top Rank's talented lightweight Felix Verdejo is on UniMas against Jose Rodriguez in what is essentially a stay busy fight.
