Tonight at 7:30 pm ET streaming live on ESPN+, Eleider Alvarez and Joe Smith Jr headline from Top Rank’s “Bubble” in Las Vegas in a 12-round WBO light heavyweight eliminator.
Alvarez, 36, is a former titleholder, having upset Sergey Kovalev in Aug. 2018, only to lose the belt back to him in the Feb. 2019 rematch. But the Colombian-Canadian remains a top contender at 175 pounds, and the heavy-handed Smith is never a pushover, as the 30-year-old from Long Island is dangerous throughout any fight.
The co-feature will see former secondary middleweight titlist Rob Brant take on Vitalii Kopylenko in a 10-round bout, and we’ll also see fan favorite Clay Collard, the pro debut of featherweight Duke Ragan, and much more.
Join us this evening for live updates and discussion!
