This evening at 6:30 pm ET, join us for a live stream from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, featuring three fights before the main card tripleheader on Showtime, which starts at 9 pm ET.
Edwin Rodriguez (30-2, 20 KO) will be in cruiserweight action, facing Mitch Williams (16-6-3, 11 KO) in a 10-round bout. We’ll also see bantamweight prospect Antonio Russell (12-0, 10 KO), the younger brother of WBC featherweight champ Gary Russell Jr, in eight-round action against Jose Maria Cardenas (16-3, 13 KO). And opening the show will be Cuba’s Leduan Barthelemy (13-0-1, 7 KO), who takes on Miguel Angel Aispuro (11-6-2, 7 KO) in an eight-round super featherweight fight.
Being honest, none of these fights are too great on paper, but hey, it’s some boxing to whet your appetite before the main card, headlined by Erislandy Lara challenging Brian Castano for the WBA “world” junior middleweight title, plus the return of heavyweight contender Luis Ortiz.
