Friday, June 28, 2019
What: Richard Commey (28-2, 25 KOs) vs Ray Beltran (36-8-1, 25 KOs)
Where: Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, Calif.
Channel: ESPN (undercard on ESPN+ at 7 pm ET)
Time: 10 pm ET
Odds: Commey -1250, Beltran +700
Synopsis: Commey holds the IBF lightweight title and seemed on his way to a unification battle against Vasyl Lomachenko before a Commey injury derailed it. Now Commey defends his belt against Beltran, one of the top lightweights of the past few years, in an important bout to Commey’s future.
Other Bouts: The other big fight on the ESPN televised card is a 10-round junior middleweight bout between Carlos Adames and Patrick Day. The rest of the fights are on ESPN+ starting three hours prior.
Saturday, June 29, 2019
What: Demetrius Andrade (27-0, 17 KOs) vs Maciej Sulecki (28-1, 11 KOs)
Where: Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, R.I.
Time: 7 pm ET
Odds: Andrade -625 , Sulecki +420
Synopsis: Andrade is a former 154-pound titleholder who now holds the WBO middleweight title. He’s undefeated but relatively untested because his biggest chances to make statements never came about. Andrade pulled out of a fight against Jermell Charlo in 2014 over money and was stuck fighting a lower level opponent when BJ Saunders failed a pre-fight drug test last year. Sulecki’s only loss was to Daniel Jacobs, but he was almost knocked out by veteran Gabriel Rosado in his last fight.
Other Bouts: Former heavyweight titleholder Joseph Parker returns to action knowing he holds a win over current unified heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz. That has to make him feel like he can become champ again someday. Parker takes on Alex Leapai in his first fight under the new promotional banner of Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing.
What: Jermall Charlo (27-0, 21 KOs) vs Brandon Adams (21-2, 13 KOs)
Where: NRG Arena in Houston, Texas
Time: 9 pm ET
Odds: Charlo -2500, Adams +1000
Synopsis: Charlo is a former 154-pound titleholder who now holds a secondary WBC middleweight belt. Adams won the last season of The Contender series that returned on EPIX last year. Charlo is still chasing big fights against the likes of Canelo Alvarez and Gennadiy Golovkin, so he needs to keep winning to make his case.
Other Bouts: Junior middleweight prospect Erickson Lubin was knocked out by Charlo’s twin brother in his only loss, but he has lots of talent and is still just 23 years old. Lubin takes on Zakaria Attou as he continues his rebuild project.
