Those of you eager for an appetizer before the utter explosion of boxing on August 14th are in luck, as FITE will carry Legacy Sports Management’s event in Dubai the day before.

The card has a 2:00 PM Eastern start time and will run you $19.99.

In the main event, former super welterweight champ Austin Trout (33-5-1, 18 KO) looks to make it three straight against Alejandro Davilla (22-2-2, 9 KO), who’s best known for getting stopped by Mikael Zewski and Serhii Bohachuk. 14 pounds north, Anthony Sims Jr. (20-1, 18 KO) looks to reestablish himself as a genuine prospect after last year’s loss to Roamer Alexis Angulo, taking on unheralded Argentinean Hernan David Perez (8-3, 3 KO).

Other names of note include former WBSS competitor Mike Perez (24-3-1, 15 KO) returning to action after three years away against Tony Salam (14-2, 9 KO) and unbeaten German heavyweight Christian Thun (6-0, 4 KO) taking on the decrepit remains of Lucas Browne (29-3, 25 KO)
