Rolando “Rolly” Romero returns to action tonight on Showtime, facing Ismael Barroso for the vacant WBA 140 lb title in the 12-round main event from Las Vegas.
It will be Romero’s first actual world title fight in his first bout at 140, stepping up from light about a year after getting knocked out by Gervonta “Tank” Davis.
Wil Esco will have round-by-round for all three fights starting at 9 pm ET, and we’ll have live updates, highlights, and results in this stream:
Along with the main event, we’ll see veteran Rances Barthelemy take on Omar Juarez in a 10-rounder, and Batyr Akhmedov face Kenneth Sims Jr in a WBA eliminator at 140, meaning the winner of that fight is in theory in line for a shot at the winner of the main event.
