It was, all in all, a hard-hitting, action-packed night of world championship boxing on both FOX and ESPN, with four world titles up for grabs over three fights.
Over on FOX, we saw Julian Williams stun Jarrett Hurd to take the WBA and IBF 154-pound belts in a fight that is at the least high on the list for 2019 Fight of the Year right now.
On ESPN, there were two world title rematches, all repeat, no revenge. Emanuel Navarrete dominated Isaac Dogboe en route to a 12th round stoppage, and Miguel Berchelt put it on the always-game Francisco Vargas until Vargas’ corner stopped the fight after six rounds.
If you couldn’t see the fights live tonight, we’ve got the highlights for you, but all of the fights are worth a watch if you like fights with action and not just Canelo Alvarez Special Events.

Statement made. Navarrete seemingly hurts his right hand, knocks down Dogboe and Dogboe's corner throws in the towel. #NavarreteDogboe2 pic.twitter.com/9IAxvwRa8Z— Top Rank Boxing (@trboxing) May 12, 2019
