NEW YORK (June 27, 2021) – SHOWTIME will add a special replay of tonight’s pay-per-view main event fight between Gervonta Davis and Mario Barrios to the SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING telecast next Saturday, July 3 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on SHOWTIME.
The replay of tonight’s SHOWTIME PPV headline attraction from State Farm Arena in Atlanta, which showed that Gervonta carried his power to 140, will serve as the opening fight of the live telecast from Carson, Calif. on Independence Day weekend.
The SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING event from Carson, Calif. will be headlined by undefeated Interim WBA Super Featherweight Champion Chris “Primetime” Colbert, who continues his rise to stardom in one of boxing’s elite divisions, facing hard-hitting 130-pound contender Tugstsogt “King Tug” Nyambayar. The SHOWTIME telecast will feature unbeaten rising star Michel Rivera battling lightweight contender Jon Fernández in a 135-pound WBA title eliminator in the co-main event as well as highlights of undefeated super lightweight contender Richardson Hitchins squaring off against Darwin Price in a 10-round duel.
