Today at 3:00 pm ET streaming live on ESPN+, the light heavyweights have their first round bouts in the third of three MTK Golden Contract tournaments to get kicked off, this time live from Brentwood, England.
We’ve got four matchups, all set for 10 rounds, in the quarterfinal round of the tournament, with the winners of course moving on to the semifinal round on a date to be determined.
The featured fight, as it were, will see former British champions Hosea Burton and Bob Ajisafe square off in probably the most intriguing of today’s matchups on paper, but boxing is one of those sports where cards like this seem to surprise more often than not, so who knows what kind of action we might get from the whole show here?
This at least figures to be a nice way to whet our appetites for the Top Rank show on ESPN and ESPN+ later this evening, and one should pretty much lead right into the other, so get started early and join us!
