We’ll have an all-bantamweight tripleheader tonight at 10 pm ET on Showtime, with 40-year-old Guillermo Rigondeaux challenging for John Riel Casimero’s WBO title in the 12-round main event from Carson, California.
We’ll have live updates and highlights plus round-by-round for the main event in this stream:
This is a fight that has had a lot of weird ups and downs. Rigondeaux-Casimero was the original fight for this date, but then a “magic wand was waved” or whatever and suddenly, Nonito Donaire was in to face Casimero instead. Then the Donaire and Casimero camps got into a ridiculous social media brawl which was very cool for a bunch of people in their 30s and older, and Donaire withdrew, Rigondeaux coming back in.
