Thursday, Aug. 11
ESPN+ and Social Media, 4:00 pm ET, Lopez vs Campa press conference.
Friday, Aug. 12
ESPN2, 3:30 pm ET, Lopez vs Campa weigh-in. They’re doing a “Max on Boxing” live special for the weigh-in. They’re treating Teofimo Lopez’s return as a big deal. There’s also an ESPN+ stream starting at 4 ET for the undercard weigh-ins.
PPV, TBA, Tevin Farmer vs Mickey Bey. The hype video on the dodgy web site where you can buy a “pay per view ticket” for this fight calls this “the fight of the century.” When I tell you I have heard some people say some shit hyping bad PPV fights and this still about knocked me out of my office chair — my God. Right now it’s advertising 3 pm ET start, I think, but ... the thing is, I don’t care. I’m not spending time in my life to watch this live. If you’re interested enough, you’ll figure out what time it starts.
Saturday, Aug. 13
FITE+, 5:30 pm ET, Wesley Ferrer vs Jayson Velez.
ESPN+, 6:30 pm ET, Lopez vs Campa prelims.
ESPN and ESPN+, 10:00 pm ET, Teofimo Lopez vs Pedro Campa. Teofimo hasn’t fought since his upset loss to George Kambosos Jr, which he didn’t handle very well, if we’re all being honest. He’s moving up to 140 now, and Campa has a pretty empty record, he’s been chosen for a reason. But we have to find out how Lopez comes in here. He’s seemed in good spirits, but the real seeing is fight night. Rising star Xander Zayas is in the co-feature. Bad Left Hook will have live coverage.
