Lots of big fighters are in action this Saturday with 6 fights across 3 locations from HBO and Showtime. Get the full details and fight cards here.
Saturday is a big day for boxing fans, with hours and hours of back-to-back content available. You’ve got some quality fights in here, plus some of the sport’s elite fighters – which is a good thing because after Canelo vs. Chavez Jr., frankly, we’ve earned it.
Showtime kicks the marathon day off with a split-site quadruple-header. The day opens with maybe the most intriguing fight, as recently minted champion Gervonta Davis takes on Liam Walsh in London. After that, Showtime shifts over to featuring three fights from the US. Headlining is the excellent Gary Russell, Jr. who takes on Oscar Escandon. The show starts at 6:00 p.m. ET, which means Davis vs. Walsh should be on a slight tape delay. Our coverage of that fight will be based on the Showtime broadcast.
HBO takes the reigns after that, with Terence Crawford headlining a doubleheader against Felix Diaz. That show is scheduled for 10:15 p.m. ET, so Showtime’s programming should be off the air by the time HBO starts. Which means it’s a busy night for fans of the Sweet Science.
Bloody Elbow will have live fight night coverage of both the Showtime and HBO cards this Saturday night.
