Lara vs Hurd: Live streaming results and round by round coverage

Erislandy Lara headlines tonight against Jarrett Hurd on Showtime.

Stephanie Trapp/SHOWTIME

Tonight at 10 pm ET on Showtime, Erislandy Lara meets Jarrett Hurd in a junior middleweight title unification bout in the main event of a three-fight bill from Las Vegas.

Lara (25-2-2, 14 KO) is defending his WBA “super world” title against the IBF belt held by Hurd (21-0, 15 KO), who is on a streak of seven straight stoppage wins. It’s an intriguing matchup between a top crafty veteran and a rising young star who’s been showing style with his substance.

In the co-feature, Caleb Truax (29-3-2, 18 KO) defends the IBF super middleweight title against James DeGale (23-2-1, 14 KO), the man he upset in February to lift the belt in the United Kingdom. It’s repeat or revenge in this one, and the man who won the first time may still be the underdog to many.

In the opener, Julian Williams (24-1-1, 15 KO) meets Nathaniel Gallimore (20-1-1, 17 KO) in a 12-round junior middleweight bout.

Wil Esco will be on the round-by-round call. Join us!
