This morning from Macau, BLH will have live coverage of three world title fights in the featherweight division, with Nonito Donaire headlining in a bid to capture the WBA super title from Simpiwe Vetyeka in the main event.
Donaire (32-2, 23 KO) is coming off of a rough 2013 after being named by most outlets the 2012 Fighter of the Year, losing handily to Guillermo Rigondeaux, then struggling through a rematch against Vic Darchinyan, though he did rally for a late stoppage in that bout.
Now back with his father Nonito Donaire Sr, "The Filipino Flash" aims to win a world title in his fourth weight class against Vetyeka (26-2, 16 KO), a red-hot fighter with back-to-back TKO wins over Daud Yordan and long-running featherweight champ Chris John.
Also defending world titles will be Nicholas Walters (23-0, 19 KO) putting his WBA "regular" belt up against the aforementioned Darchinyan (39-6-1, 28 KO), and IBF titleholder Evgeny Gradovich (18-0, 9 KO) facing Alexander Miskirtchian (24-2-1, 9 KO).
Also in action will be Chris Avalos (23-2, 17 KO) in an IBF super bantamweight eliminator against Yasutaka Ishimoto (24-6, 7 KO), plus Rex Tso, Esquiva Falcao, and a few other undercard bouts.
Live streaming undercard action will begin at TopRankTV.com at 6:20 am EDT. The Top Rank stream will show everything except for Donaire-Vetyeka, which airs later today on HBO via tape delay; and Avalos-Ishimoto, which airs on UniMas on Saturday night. BLH, however, will have full live coverage of the entire card, so join us for all the action this morning from Macau!
