ShoBox - Vega vs Palmetta: Live results and discussion

ShoBox is back tonight with a tripleheader from Iowa.

Dave Mandel/SHOWTIME


Tonight at 10:30 pm ET from Sloan, Iowa, ShoBox: The New Generation returns to Showtime with a tripleheader, immediately following the 9 pm ET premiere of the Showtime Sports documentary Pariah: The Lives and Deaths of Sonny Liston.

In the 10-round welterweight main event, 24-year-old Mexican Erik Vega will face 29-year-old Alberto Palmetta, a southpaw from Argentina.

The co-feature will be a 10-round light heavyweight bout between Marcos Escudero, a 26-year-old from Argentina, and Joe George, a 30-year-old from Houston.

The opener will see 23-year-old Amilcar Vidal Jr, born in Uruguay and based in California, making his US debut against Zach Prieto, a 27-year-old from Texas who has mostly fought in Mexico thus far.

All six fighters are looking to make a statement this evening and if you add up their records you’ll go, “Wow! What a winning percentage!” so expect Steve Farhood to do that.

Main Card (SHO, 10:30 pm ET)

  • Erik Vega (16-0, 9 KO) vs Alberto Palmetta (12-1, 8 KO), welterweights, 10 rounds
  • Marcos Escudero (10-0, 9 KO) vs Joe George (9-0, 6 KO), light heavyweights, 10 rounds
  • Amilcar Vidal Jr (9-0, 8 KO) vs Zach Prieto (9-0, 7 KO), middleweights, 8 rounds
