Tonight at 8:00 pm EST on Showtime (US) and BoxNation (UK), Zab Judah and Paulie Malignaggi feature in the main event from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn in a fight for local bragging rights, pride, and potentially a world title opportunity at welterweight.
Judah (42-8, 29 KO) and Malignaggi (32-5, 7 KO) are coming off of losses, but were very competitive with top young guns Danny Garcia and Adrien Broner in those defeats. Now they have a chance to close out 2013 with a big win that could lead to a shot at next weekend's Broner-Maidana winner, or perhaps tonight's welterweight title fight winner between Devon Alexander and Shawn Porter. Alexander (25-1, 14 KO) will defend his IBF belt against Porter (22-0-1, 14 KO).
Two more world titles are also up for grabs. In a fight for the vacant WBA "regular" junior middleweight title, Erislandy Lara (18-1-2, 12 KO) takes on fellow southpaw Austin Trout (26-1, 14 KO), and Sakio Bika (32-5-2, 21 KO) will defend his WBC super middleweight title against Anthony Dirrell (26-0, 23 KO).
Join us this evening!
