ShoBox: Love vs Simon - Live results and round-by-round coverage

It's a Mayweather Promotions showcase on the latest edition of ShoBox: The New Generation, starting late tonight from Shelton, Washington.

Stephanie Trapp/SHOWTIME

Hey, there! What are you doing tonight? Cool. Cool. Partying. Right on, man, right on. You there. Over in the corner. Doing nothing with your life. ShoBox: The New Generation has a quadruple-header starting at 11:50 pm EST this evening. We're your people. We're here.

Here's the lineup for tonight's Mayweather Promotions showcase.

Super Middleweights - 10 Rounds
J'Leon Love (15-0, 8 KO) vs Lajuan Simon (23-4-2, 12 KO)

Love is coming off of an overturned and already a little controversial win over Gabriel Rosado in May, but more importantly he's coming off of a suspension as a result of failing a post-fight drug test for a diuretic. Simon is a decent veteran and at his best can be tricky, and Love has shown clear limitations. A struggle would not be a shock.

Super Middleweights - 10 Rounds
Badou Jack (15-0-1, 10 KO) vs Rogelio Medina (31-4, 25 KO)

Jack got his first blemish last time out, going to a draw with Marco Antonio Periban. He doesn't look like a particularly promising fighter, plus he's already 30, but he's talented enough and has the right connections to get himself into a world title fight and maybe even win one if it's the right sort of fight. Mayweather got Ishe Smith a world title against most (not all) odds.

Lightweights - 10 Rounds
Mickey Bey (18-1-1, 9 KO) vs Carlos Cardenas (20-6-1, 13 KO)

Bey, 30, is a Floyd Mayweather Sr fighter, so he does the Mayweather Style, as it were, but like most fighters, he's not quite Floyd Mayweather in that style. Or James Toney. Maybe James Toney 2010. I dunno. Bey's a decent fighter, though, and was on his way to a win in July before John Molina's spirited final round comeback and TKO. That was really the best Bey has looked as a pro, so the hope is that he shakes off the loss as just something that happens in boxing, and builds off of what was working very well for him that night.

Middleweights - 8 Rounds
Chris Pearson (9-0, 8 KO) vs Acacio Ferreira (14-0-1, 12 KO)

Ferreira, a Brazilian, has a record so empty it nearly defies description. He hasn't beaten anyone with a pro win in his last four fights, and seven of the guys he's beaten didn't have a win coming into the bout. Pearson has a little buzz as a prospect.
