Tonight beginning at 8 p.m. EDT, Showtime brings us a five-fight card with a lot of notable names, some potential breakthrough fighters, two world title fights, returns, prospects, and make-or-break fights. In other words, it's going to be a long, probably quite fulfilling evening, and we'll be here with round-by-round coverage.
The 8 p.m. EDT start will feature a 168-pound title fight between Sakio Bika and Dyah Davis on Showtime Extreme. It's a significant fight in the division, as both are right in that contender range and could use a strong win to move toward a potential world title shot.
At 9 p.m. EDT, the show moves to Showtime, as well as BoxNation in the U.K., for the remaining four fights.
Tarver vs Kayode | Quillin vs Wright
Trout vs Rodriguez | Santa Cruz vs Malinga / Bika vs Davis
Here's the running order and odds that I could find.
- Vacant IBF Bantamweight Title: Leo Santa Cruz vs Vusi Malinga
- WBA Junior Middleweight Title: Austin Trout (-450, -500) vs Delvin Rodriguez (+325, +400)
- Peter Quillin (-750, -900) vs Winky Wright (+475, +600)
- Antonio Tarver (-400, -325, -320, -400) vs Lateef Kayode (+300, +265, +250, +300)
We'll have live round by round coverage of the entire show, starting at 8 p.m. EDT. Join us tonight!
