You can watch live (close to anyway) on NBCOlympics.com, or wait for tape delay on CNBC at 5 p.m. EDT.
There are good fights in each division this afternoon. Seeded bantamweights Luke Campbell of Great Britain and Magomed Abdulhamidov of Azerbaijan will take to the ring for the first time, facing Jahyn Vittorio Parrinello (Italy) and Satoshi Shimizu (Japan), respectively. Also getting his first actual action is Mohamed Amine Ouadahi of Algeria, whose first round opponent missed weight and thus could not compete. Ouadahi faces William Encarnacion of the Dominican Republic. Also, Ibrahim Balla of Australia takes on Detelin Dalakliev of Bulgaria.
At heavyweight, we'll see: Teymur Mammadov (Azerbaijan) vs Jai Tapu Opetaia (Australia), Julio Castillo Torres (Ecuador) vs Siarhei Karneyeu (Belarus), Jose Larduet (Cuba) vs Ali Mazaheri (Iran), and Tumba Silva (Angola) vs Clemente Russo (Italy).
The super heavyweights lead off with Ivan Dychko (Kazakhstan) vs Erik Pfeifer (Germany) and Simon Kean (Canada) vs Tony Yoka (France), before giving way to 2008 silver medalist Zhilei Zhang of China, who faces Johan Linde of Australia.
But the afternoon's money fight comes at the very end, as Great Britain gold medal hopeful Anthony Joshua faces Cuban gold medal hopeful Erislandy Savon. It's the highest-level fight, in terms of rankings and expectations of the two fighters, we'll have seen so far.
