Saturday Afternoon Boxing Results
Klitschko TKO-4 Charr / Adamek TKO-5 Walker / Bellew TKO-9 Miranda


Matthysse (31-2, 29 KO) is a top contender in the 140-pound division, and could be argued as the best fighter at the weight right now -- as in, it wouldn't be too hard to rank him No. 1 if you created a well-reasoned and legitimate case, which he has if you want to make it. But Ajose (30-0, 14 KO) is a talented contender in his own right, a former British champion who has been sitting on a WBC mandatory title shot for a year, and still isn't getting it. But tonight, the vacant interim WBC title is on the line, even though the champ (Danny Garcia) fought in July and fights again on October 20.

We'll have live coverage of the full show, which should be over by the time HBO goes to their live fights from Oakland on the Ward vs Dawson card. The Klitschko-Charr tape delay broadcast will lead off their show.
