Here’s where to watch the biggest and best fights on television and streaming platforms this weekend in the U.S., including the most important info such as time, location, platform, betting odds and notable undercard fights. All odds listed below come from New Jersey-based bookmaker 888sport.
Friday, June 7, 2019
What: Zab Judah (44-9, 30 KOs) vs Cletus Seldin (23-1, 19 KOs)
Where: Turning Stone Casino in Verona, New York
Channel: FITE.TV pay-per-view
Time: 8 pm ET
Synopsis: Judah, 41, from Brooklyn, New York, hasn’t fought in over a year and hasn’t really been a relevant contender in over half a decade. But the southpaw was once one of the more talented fighters in boxing and it seems he still has the boxing bug. Judah takes on 32-year-old Seldin in a battle between two faded New Yorkers in search of a little more glory.
Other Bouts: Other bouts included on the $14.99 PPV promoted by Star Boxing features James McGirt Jr vs David Papot in a 10-round middleweight bout and Lavisas Williams vs Mario Alfano in an 8-round round lightweight scrap.
Saturday, June 8, 2019
What: Gennady Golovkin (28-1-1, 34 KOs) vs Steve Rolls (19-0, 10 KOs)
Where: Madison Square Garden in New York, New York
Time: 9 pm ET
Odds: Golovkin -5000, Ruiz +1400
Synopsis: Golovkin returns to the ring in a 164-pound catchweight bout against regional-level talent Rolls. Golvokin, 37, seems intent on getting middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez back in the ring for the third time. To do that, he’ll need to beat Rolls, 35, and probably need to look pretty good in doing it.
Other Bouts: If you haven’t seen Nikita Ababiy fight yet, have a look at this 4-0 prospect on the DAZN undercard. Nicknamed “White Chocolate” and full of fast-twitch talent, Ababiy does his best Roy Jones Jr impression at middleweight which if anything will be fun to watch for however long it works. There are plenty of other fights, too.
What: Oscar Valdez (25-0, 20 KOs) vs Jason Sanchez (14-0, 7 KOs)
Where: Reno-Sparks Convention Center in Reno, Nevada
Time: 10 pm ET
Synopsis: WBO featherweight titleholder Oscar Valdez goes for his seventh straight title defense against undefeated contender Jason Sanchez, who hopes to play the big spoiler. Valdez, 28, from Mexico, continues to build a solid resume under Top Rank. It will be interesting to see if he can become as popular as other past Mexican featherweight greats.
Other Bouts: Gabriel Flores Jr is a hotly touted lightweight prospect that's getting the ESPN limelight against Salvador Briceno. The undercard will be shown on ESPN+ starting at 6:30 pm ET and features a junior lightweight battle between Andy Vences and Albert Bell among other fights.
