Tonight at 10 p.m. EST, Showtime goes live from Corpus Christi, Texas, with a double-header featuring former welterweight and junior middleweight titlist Paul Williams facing Nobuhiro Ishida in a bounce-back fight, and IBF light heavyweight titlist Tavoris Cloud defending against Gabriel Campillo.
Early Undercard Results
Chris Arreola knocked out Eric Molina in the first round, then turned his post-fight interview focus on Don King.
Malik Scott returned from a three-year break to beat Kendrick Releford.
In a big upset, Justin Williams (4-5-1, 2 KO) beat Alfonso Lopez (22-3, 17 KO) by unanimous decision in six rounds. Williams dropped Lopez in the second round.
But first at 8 p.m. EST, Showtime Extreme goes live with Barry Tompkins and Steve Farhood on the microphones, and Chris Arreola in a featured undercard bout against Eric Molina in the heavyweight division.
This is a new idea at Showtime Sports, which was supposed to debut last weekend on the rescheduled Ortiz vs Berto II card, but instead will get its first run tonight. It's a great idea that hopefully boxing fans will embrace -- the UFC has conditioned fight fans to care about the entire card by offering more than just their main card fights for everyone to see, and this is a step in that direction for boxing.
Bad Left Hook will have live, round-by-round results for all the action, starting with the prelim show at 8. So join us tonight for more boxing as we wrap up a long day of coverage.
