Vitali Klitschko defends his WBC heavyweight title today in Munich, Germany, facing Britain's Dereck Chisora in the main event from Olympiahalle.
BoxNation in the U.K. will be going live sometime around 2:30 p.m. EST, while U.S. viewers can watch live on Epix and stream live on EpixHD.com at 4:30 p.m. EST. RTL in Germany is also carrying the card.
Klitschko (43-2, 40 KO) the heavy favorite in the fight, as expected against Chisora (15-2, 9 KO), a brash greenhorn in comparison. The mouthy Brit raised some buzz yesterday by slapping Klitschko during the weigh-in, which Klitschko has promised to repay today in the ring.
As usual, the Klitschko undercard isn't of much interest to most, but here's the lineup:
Heavyweights, 12 Rounds
Johnathon Banks (27-1-1, 18 KO) vs Nicolai Firtha (20-9-1, 8 KO)
Junior Welterweights, 8 Rounds
Serhiy Fedchenko (29-1, 13 KO) vs Laszlo Fazekas (8-0-1, 6 KO)
Featherweights, 8 Rounds
Stephen Smith (12-1, 6 KO) vs Arpad Vass (7-2, 5 KO)
Welterweights, 6 Rounds
Timo Schwartzkopf (5-0, 4 KO) vs Andre Deobald (4-2-2, 3 KO)
Junior Middleweights, 4 Rounds
Tony Harrison (4-0, 4 KO) vs Suleyman Dag (9-31, 4 KO)
