Today at 2 pm ET streaming live on DAZN and also airing on Sky Sports in the United Kingdom, Lewis Ritson returns to action in Newcastle to face Argentina’s Jeremias Ponce in an IBF eliminator at 140 lbs.
The fight is billed as a “final eliminator,” which goes against the original idea for the IBF to do a four-man elimination tournament of sorts, but at any rate the winner of this fight very well could be facing Subriel Matias for the vacant belt later this year, if Josh Taylor vacates at 140 by then as most expect he will.
We’ll have live updates including round-by-round for Ritson-Ponce in this stream:
The card will also feature a return for featherweight Thomas Patrick Ward, who faces Edy Valencia Mercado in the co-feature, plus popular heavyweight Alen Babic against Damian Chambers, the pro debut of Cyrus Pattinson, heavyweight prospect Solomon Dacres, and junior middleweight April Hunter.
