Mikey Garcia and Jessie Vargas headline a stacked DAZN card on Saturday.

Friday, Feb. 28

UFC Fight Pass, 9:00 pm ET, Jamaine Ortiz vs Luis Ronald Castillo, Irvin Gonzalez vs Yeuri Andujar.

SHO, 10:45 pm ET, Keith Hunter vs Sanjarbek Rakhmanov II, Richardson Hitchins vs Nick DeLomba, Kevin Newman II vs Genc Pllana. A late change to this card with Rakhmanov replacing Malik Hawkins, and now the main event is a rematch of a fight from last April.

Telemundo, 11:35 pm ET, Yomar Alamo vs Kendo Castaneda. This is a better than average Boxeo Telemundo main event by a fair bit. Alamo, 24, and Castaneda, 26, are both unbeaten fighters at 140, fighting for WBO rankings power.

Saturday, Feb. 29

DAZN, 6:00 pm ET, Garcia vs Vargas prelims. The prelims here feature some really good prospects, including Israil Madrimov, Alexis Espino, and Diego Pacheco. BLH will have live coverage.

DAZN, 8:00 pm ET, Mikey Garcia vs Jessie Vargas, Kal Yafai vs Roman Gonzalez, Julio Cesar Martinez vs Jay Harris, Joseph Parker vs Shawndell Winters. Pretty easily the best top three on a single card on paper so far this year. Garcia is going make or break at 147 against Vargas, who is a big step back from Errol Spence Jr but still a credible fighter, a former titleholder. If Mikey just can’t hack it at welterweight, Vargas is good enough to show us. Yafai-Gonzalez is for a 115-pound title, and the sort of fight Yafai has been trying to get for years. Martinez-Harris is for a 112-pound title. This could be a great show. BLH will have live coverage.
