Paulie Malignaggi faces Adrien Broner tonight in the main event of a three-fight bill on Showtime, with Showtime Extreme also broadcasting undercard fights beforehand. The card is also available in the UK on BoxNation, and can be streamed by BN subscribers at livesport.TV.
Malignaggi (32-4, 7 KO) is defending his WBA welterweight title for just the second time, while Broner (26-0, 22 KO) is jumping up from a brief stint at lightweight. The 23-year-old Cincinnati phenom has already won world titles at 130 and 135 pounds, and is now looking to add a third belt to his collection.
Here are the TV particulars:
