This evening at 7:30 pm ET, DAZN goes live with a card from Carson, California, headlined by WBO 154-pound titleholder Jaime Munguia defending against Patrick Allotey.

Munguia, 22, came from just about out of nowhere in May 2018, dominating Sadam Ali to take the WBO junior middleweight belt in an HBO main event. He’s defended successfully four times, including twice this year. In January, he shut down Takeshi Inoue over 12 rounds, but in April, he went home to Mexico and had legitimate problems with Dennis Hogan in a fight many observers felt Hogan deserved to win.

Munguia will look to put on a better showing tonight, working with new trainer Erik Morales, in what is expected to be his last fight at 154 before moving up to middleweight.

Allotey, 28, is a veteran from Ghana who has never had any successful near the upper levels of the sport, and is ranked No. 138 in the world by BoxRec, which is worth noting. On paper, yes, this is a mismatch.

This card was also supposed to feature Ryan Garcia vs Avery Sparrow, but Sparrow was arrested on Friday, and that fight has been canceled. There is another world title bout on the show, though, as Franchon Crews-Dezurn will defend her WBC super middleweight title in a rematch with Maricela Cornejo.

We will be here with live results as they roll on, but our focus tonight is on the Fury-Wallin card. That said, that show starts with the main card at 11 pm ET, so there’s a decent chance we’ll be done here by the time the main fights are set to kick off there. Fingers crossed!

Here’s the full lineup:
