Today at 3 pm ET streaming live on ESPN+, Ryan Walsh defends the British featherweight title in the main event at York Hall in London, facing undefeated Scotsman Lewis Paulin.

Walsh, 33, is on a long run with the 126-pound belt, winning it back in Sept. 2015 against Samir Mouneimne. He’s defended successfully five times, beating Darren Traynor, James Tennyson, Marco McCullough, and Reece Bellotti, and going to a draw with Isaac Lowe.

Paulin, 28, has an extremely empty record, with a Dec. 2017 win over Stephen Tiffney at the Paisley Lagoon Leisure Centre being the best of his career by far. Other than Tiffney, who was 8-0, he’s never even faced anyone with a winning record other than Jamie McGuire, who was 5-0 in 2015.

The co-feature will pit twice-beaten Ohara Davies in a 140-pound scrap against faded former lightweight titleholder Miguel Vazquez, and Anthony Yigit will also fight on the card, along with Daniel Egbunike facing Martin McDonagh in a battle of early career unbeatens.

Here’s the full card and run order:
