For those who are wondering how today's BoxNation lineup is going to suit the split site lineup, here's how it'll go down, and how we'll be covering the event this afternoon.
BoxNation will go live from the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff, Wales, at 2:30 p.m. EST. Undercard bouts, including Frankie Gavin vs Kevin McIntyre and Enzo Maccarinelli vs Ciaran Healy, will air before BoxNation switches to live coverage from Stuggart, Germany, of the Alexander Povetkin vs Marco Huck main event, no later than 4:30 p.m. EST, which lines up with the 4 p.m. EST start times for Epix (US) and ARD (Germany).
After Povetkin vs Huck, BoxNation will switch back to Cardiff for the Nathan Cleverly vs Tommy Karpency fight for Cleverly's WBO light heavyweight title. Epix and EpixHD.com will also have both main events.
We will have two separate live threads this afternoon, one for the fights from Cardiff and the other for the Povetkin vs Huck main event. If you're wondering why we'll have two, I'll be honest: It's beneficial, traffic-wise, for us to do that, and also helps me keep track of nonsense personal records easier.
So we'll start in the Cleverly-Karpency thread for the undercard, switch over to Povetkin-Huck, and then go back to Cleverly-Karpency. At the conclusion of all of the fights, we'll have immediate post-fight recaps posted on the front page.
