Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Tonight at 9 p.m. EDT, Top Rank will present a split site PPV from Mexico City and Las Vegas with a double main event and two featured undercard bouts.

Live streaming undercard coverage is available here at Bad Left Hook, too.

In the first main event of the night, Brandon Rios will face Richard Abril in a fight where only Abril can win the vacant WBA lightweight title at stake, as Rios missed weight for the second straight fight. Rios (29-0-1, 22 KO) was pretty heavily favored to win the fight, but Abril (17-2-1, 8 KO) was at least a credible opponent if not a major threat. Is Rios in good enough shape to fight his usual style?

The night's final fight will be coming from Mexico City, as living legend Juan Manuel Marquez (53-6-1, 39 KO) returns to the ring to face Serhiy Fedchenko (30-1, 13 KO) for the vacant WBO interim junior welterweight title. Marquez is a massive favorite. Wins tonight for both Rios and Marquez could set up a big July 14 fight at Cowboys Stadium.

On the undercard, Mike Alvarado (32-0, 23 KO) faces Mauricio Herrera (18-1, 7 KO) in a ten-round junior welterweight bout many feel will steal the show. Also featured will be Filipino lightweight prospect Mercito Gesta (24-0-1, 12 KO) facing Oscar Cuero (15-7, 12 KO) in a showcase bout for Gesta. Both of these fights will be from the Mandalay Bay in Vegas.

Bad Left Hook will have live, round-by-round coverage and up to the second updates from the entire show. Join us!
