Viktor Postol and France's Mohamed Mimoune battle in a 140-pound title eliminator and rising heavyweight sensation Efe Ajagba faces once-beaten Michael Wallisch on the tripleheader at The Chelsea inside of The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
Heavyweight contender Dominic Breazeale stops Carlos Negron, calls out Deontay Wilder; Rances Barthelemy and Terrell Gausha bounce back with wins; and heavyweight sensation Efe Ajagba scores another quick stoppage.
The scorecards might have suggested otherwise, but Mikey Garcia certainly had to earn his way into the boxing history books Saturday night as previously unbeaten Sergey Lipinets proved to a formidable champion of his own.
Rances Barthelemy plans to fight smarter against Kyril Relikh in 140-pound World Championship rematch
Despite winning the first match by convincing margins on the judges' scorecards, Rances Barthelemy wants to make an emphatic statement tomorrow night when he looks to become the first Cuban boxer to win world titles in three different weight classes.
Unprecedented lineup features 10 marquee events stacked with 12 world champions and 12 title fights over the first six months of 2018.
Undefeated two-time world champion Rances Barthelemy rematches Kiryl Relikh for a vacant 140-pound title in the co-main event of the Showtime-televised card from the Alamodome.
It sticks to him like a stain that he can’t wash out. Each opponent Gary Russell Jr. meets wears the face of Vasyl Lomachenko, the only fighter to ever beat Russell as a pro. And each fight Russell has had since that June 2014 setback means another step toward self-redemption in a Lomachenko rematch.
