Premier Boxing Champions has revealed the full lineup for this Saturday’s Andy Ruiz Jr vs. Chris Arreola prelims, which notably feature hard-luck welterweight slugger Adrian Granados and former heavyweight Olympian Oscar Negron.

Per the press release, “[p]ortions of the undercard will be broadcast for free on the FOX Sports app and FOXsports.com starting at 4:40pm ET/1:40 p.m. PT. The undercard feed will also be made available to the PBC on FOX YouTube, Twitter and Facebook pages.”

Granados (21-8-2, 15 KO), who bounced back from his latest highly questionable decision loss to Robert Easter Jr. by crushing a local can in February, meets Jose Luis Sanchez (11-1, 4 KO) in an eight-rounder. Sanchez hasn’t been booked past six rounds since losing an eight-rounder in his third pro fight back in 2013 and his current streak includes nobody of note, so I don’t think Granados has to worry about losing another close one.

The 34-year-old Negron (22-3, 18 KO) takes on Scott Alexander (16-3-2, 8 KO), who’s 2-0 since a 2018 majority decision loss to Travis Kauffman. Negron’s also on a two-fight streak dating back to consecutive knockout losses against Dominic Breazeale and Brian Howard.

Other fights include 18-year-old lightweight prospect Fernando Molina (5-0, 3 KO) against Prisco Marquez (4-2-1, 1 KO) and featherweight Anthony Garnica (5-0, 3 KO) against Jesse Bazzi (1-1, 0 KO).
