Joshua Franco and Andrew Moloney square off a third time in tonight’s ESPN+ and ESPN main event from Tulsa, Oklahoma, as the two look to settle a score that has turned increasingly into a grudge.
The main card will start at 10 pm ET on both ESPN+ and ESPN, with prelims kicking off at 6 pm ET on ESPN+. John Hansen will be on the coverage tonight, and you can follow along with him in the comments for the post.
Franco upset Moloney in June 2020, but when the two met in their rematch last November, a cut caused by a headbutt ended things prematurely and controversially after just two rounds. There has been a lot of talk from both sides since then, as the intensity has kicked up.
