What: Shelly Vincent (25-2) vs Karen Dullin (3-19-1)

Where: MGM Springfield in Springfield, Mass.

Channel: Facebook Fightnight Live

Time: 1:55 PM ET

Synopsis: Vincent had hung up the mitts, but then decided to glove up again, after learning her first trainer was on his death-bed. The emotion of learning that had her saying yes when a call came to fight on. She is 40, and isn’t sure if she will fight on, past this bout, against Dulin. She knows Dulin, 42, being that she fought Dulin and beat her, in her first two pro fights. Here is Vincent talking about how and why she is fighting on.

What: Emanuel Navarrete (27-1, 23 KOs) vs Francisco De Vaca (20-0, 6 KOs)

Where: Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, Calif.

Channel: ESPN (undercard on ESPN+ starting at 6:30 p.m. ET)

Time: 10 pm ET

Odds: Navarrete -2000, De Va +900, Draw +2500

Synopsis: Navarrete burst onto the scene by scoring consecutive wins over Isaac Dogboe for the WBO junior featherweight title. Now the 24-year-old from Mexico hopes to earn his second straight title defense. Navarrete faces undefeated prospect De Vaca in a bout that should provide plenty of action. Navarrete is a strong puncher with a good motor. De Vaca doesn’t have much power, but he’s a crafty boxer.

Other Bouts: The co-feature on ESPN is a featherweight clash between former titleholder Jessie Magdaleno and former title challenger Rafael Rivera. Magdaleno, 27, from Las Vegas, is the betting favorite in the fight, but Rivera, 25, from Mexico, is a live dog. The winner will be in a good spot to land another big fight down the line, possibly a world title opportunity.
