Today at 12:30 pm ET streaming live on ESPN+, super flyweght Aliu Bamidele Lasisi meets Ricardo Blandon in the 115-pound main event from Dubai.
Lasisi (12-0, 8 KO) puts his unbeaten record on the line against Nicaragua’s Blandon (10-1, 6 KO), a late replacement opponent in a 12-round main event from Emirates Golf Club in Dubai. Obviously, Lasisi, 28, is supposed to win, but Blandon, 27, has upset on his mind as he goes abroad for the fight.
In the co-feature, Davey Oliver Joyce (9-0, 7 KO) meets Stephen Tiffney (10-4, 4 KO) in an Ireland vs Scotland fight, set for 10 rounds. Joyce, 32, has lived up to the billing as a pro, but has yet to be tested. Tiffney, 30, is hoping to provide that test.
