Abner Mares and Anselmo Moreno headline a five-fight televised card tonight on Showtime and Showtime Extreme, with Alfredo Angulo, Leo Santa Cruz, and Nathan Cleverly featured on the undercard.
Tonight beginning at 8 pm EST on Showtime Extreme (as well as BoxNation in the UK), BLH will have live coverage for all five fights on the Abner Mares vs Anselmo Moreno card from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The show will kick off with a pair of undercard fights on the sister channel of Showtime, with Nathan Cleverly defending his WBO light heavyweight belt against Shawn Hawk, and junior welterweight prospect Antonio Orozco facing Danny Escobar. Both Cleverly and Orozco are expected to have a fairly easy time.
Staff Picks: Abner Mares vs Anselmo Moreno
At 10 pm EST, the action switches over to Showtime, with three more fights. Up first, junior middleweight contender Alfredo Angulo returns to action, facing Raul Casarez. It's the first fight in a year for Angulo, who lost a vicious brawl against James Kirkland in Mexico last time out, and then spent time in an ICE Detention Center in California.
After that, exciting young bantamweight Leo Santa Cruz defends his IBF title against Victor Zaleta.
And then the main event, as Abner Mares puts his WBC super bantamweight title up against top bantamweight Anselmo Moreno.
We'll be here all the way, with immediate post-fight recaps of each bout, so make sure you join us tonight for coverage of both this card, and the Martirosyan-Lara event on HBO.
