Tonight at 9:45 p.m. EST, HBO and Sky Sports will be televising the Amir Khan vs Lamont Peterson fight from Washington, DC, with Seth Mitchell facing Timur Ibragimov in the co-feature. Bad Left Hook will have live, round-by-round coverage.
Until then, feel free to follow my surely increasingly insane reactions to what we get to watch live of the Roy Jones Jr vs Max Alexander UStream PPV.
Khan (26-1, 18 KO) will be defending the WBA and IBF junior welterweight titles against Peterson (29-1-1, 15 KO). Peterson will have home field advantage, but is a massive underdog on the sportsbooks despite also being a top five or so fighter at 140 pounds.
The co-feature is a heavyweight attraction and a nice step up for "Mayhem" Mitchell (23-0-1, 17 KO), the former Michigan State Spartans football player. Ibragimov (30-3-1, 16 KO) is no joke of an opponent, and could be real trouble if Mitchell is as raw as some fear.
Up first will be the Miguel Cotto vs Antonio Margarito replay from last weekend.
Join us tonight!
