Barthelemy vs Saucedo: Live streaming results and round by round coverage

Rances Barthelemy makes his first world title defense tonight against Fernando Saucedo in the Showtime main event.

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

Tonight at 9:00 pm EDT on Showtime, there will be three live fights from Foxwoods in Mashantucket, Conn., and BLH will be here with live round-by-round coverage and immediate post-fight analysis. In the main event, Rances Barthelemy will defend the IBF super featherweight title against Fernando Saucedo.

Barthelemy (20-0, 12 KO) will be defending his title for the first time, having won the strap from Argenis Mendez in July. Saucedo (52-5-3, 8 KO) is an Argentine veteran and not considered a serious contender, but Barthelemy is still relatively inexperienced, and bigger upsets have certainly happened. Right? Right?

In the co-feature and probably the best matchup of the night on paper, Vanes Martirosyan (34-1-1, 21 KO) will face Willie Nelson (23-1-1, 13 KO) in a pivotal 154-pound fight, a must-win for both men if they hope to soon receive a world title shot. Martirosyan-Nelson is scheduled for 10 rounds.

The opening bout of the three-fight broadcast will see former light heavyweight champ Chad Dawson (32-3, 18 KO) continue his comeback against Tommy Karpency (23-4-1, 14 KO) in a 10-round fight.
