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

This afternoon starting at 2:00 pm EDT on BoxNation, Frank Warren's big bill from Cardiff, Wales, will go live, and Bad Left Hook will be here for live updates and results. HBO will air the show's main event on tape delay tonight at 9:45 pm EDT.

In the main event, Nathan Cleverly will face Sergey Kovalev with Cleverly's WBO light heavyweight title at stake. Both fighters are unbeaten and looking to take a step into elite status in the 175-pound division. Cleverly will have home field advantage, but Kovalev is a true danger on paper, as he has shown major league power in his recent fights broadcast on the NBC Sports Network, building some buzz.

On the undercard, we'll see two domestic title fights. Gary Buckland will defend the British super featherweight title against Stephen Smith, and Ovill McKenzie will take on Enzo Maccarinelli in a rematch of a controversial fight from last November. McKenzie's Commonwealth light heavyweight title will be on the line.
