Nonito Donaire will defend his WBC bantamweight title on Saturday against Reymart Gaballo in a Showtime main event, and the two fighters will weigh in today in Carson, California, ahead of that fight.
Donaire (41-6, 27 KO) and Gaballo (24-0, 20 KO) are seen by oddsmakers as the most evenly-matched main event of a very busy Saturday in top-level boxing. At 39, some may feel Donaire is there for the taking despite his recent terrific form.
We’ll also see a welterweight matchup between Kudratillo Abdukakhorov and Cody Crowley, plus the return of exciting prospect Brandon Lee in a 140 lb matchup against Juan Heraldez. Both of those fights are set for 10 rounds.
