The main event is set and both fights will go on, but the co-feature is now a non-title bout.

Tomorrow night’s ESPN+ main event between IBF super flyweight titleholder Jerwin Ancajas and challenger Jonas Sultan is set, as both fighters made weight today in Fresno for the bout.

But the co-feature is now a non-title fight, after challenger David Carmona missed weight by over three pounds for his fight with WBA “world” super flyweight titlist Kal Yafai.

Ancajas (29-1-1, 20 KO) weighed in at 114.8, just under the 115-pound limit, with Sultan (14-3, 9 KO) at 114.4. Ancajas is on a hot streak, but so is Sultan, coming off of a win over John Riel Casimero.

Yafai (23-0, 14 KO) was fine at 114.8 pounds, but Carmona (21-5-5, 9 KO) came in at 118.6, or 3.6 pounds too heavy for the fight. As a result, Yafai’s belt is not on the line, but the fight is going to go on.

Bad Left Hook will have live coverage tomorrow night starting at 9:30 pm ET for both bouts, which stream live on the ESPN+ app from Fresno, California.
