Jermell Charlo and Guillermo Rigondeaux return tonight on FOX.

Leo Wilson/Premier Boxing Champions


Tonight at 7 pm ET on FOX, PBC is back with a show from Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay, headlined by the returns of Jermell Charlo and Guillermo Rigondeaux.

Bad Left Hook will be here with live results and updates.

Charlo was supposed to be facing Tony Harrison in a rematch for the WBC 154-pound title tonight, but with Harrison injured in camp, the Houston fighter is instead matched against Jorge Cota, a late replacement opponent. Cota is a big underdog here; he’s never won on this level before, and while he’s game, he figures to be overmatched.

Rigondeaux-Ceja is a WBC eliminator at 122 pounds. Rey Vargas currently holds that title, and defends on July 13 against Tomoki Kameda.

Prospects Joey Spencer, Chris Colbert, and Jesus Ramos will also be in action.

  • Chris Colbert (11-0, 4 KO) vs Alberto Mercado (16-2-1, 3 KO), lightweights, 8 rounds
  • Jesus Ramos (9-0, 9 KO) vs Kevin Shacks (3-3-3, 3 KO), junior welterweights, 4 rounds

Main Card (FOX, 8:00 pm ET)
