In the opening bout of the broadcast, current WBO Middleweight title holder “Kid Chocolate“ Peter Quillin (30-0, 22 KOs) will defend his title against “The Czech Surgeon” Lukas Konecny (50-4, 23 KOs).
In the co-main event of the evening, IBF Welterweight Champ “Showtime” Shawn Porter (23-0-1, 14 KOs) will make his first title defense against two division world titlist “Magic Man” Paulie Maligning (33-5, 7 KOs). Although the newly crowned champ will enter the ring as a slight betting favorite, the Brooklyn born challenger will attempt to use his experience and boxing ability to capture his third world title.
In the main event of the evening, legendary fighter and current IBF 175 pound titlist Bernard Hopkins will attempt to turn back the clock and unify the Light Heavyweight division when he takes on WBA champion Beibut Shumenov.
Can the future Hall of Famer prove that he can still beat the elite at age 49?
