Today at 3 p.m. EDT on BoxNation from the United Kingdom, Michael Katsidis and Ricky Burns go head-to-head in a lightweight 12-rounder from Wembley Arena in London.

Katsidis (28-4, 23 KO) is looking to up his mark to 3-0 on trips to the U.K., where he's previously stopped Graham Earl and Kevin Mitchell. But Burns (32-2, 9 KO) is picking up some media steam as a potential upset special, with the belief that his craftiness and boxing skills could make him a very tough match for the shop-worn Katsidis.

George Groves (13-0, 10 KO) will defend his British and Commonwealth super middleweight titles in the co-feature against Paul Smith (31-2, 17 KO), and Billy Joe Saunders (10-0, 7 KO) looks to pick up his first pro belt on the broadcast, too, as he aims to grab the Southern Area middleweight title against Gary Boulden (5-2-2, 0 KO).

We'll have round-by-round coverage of each fight, with immediate post-fight analysis during and after the card. Join us!
