Nothing else on, so I'll probably watch.
Repost so the info is on the new page:
So despite everyone’s better judgement, this is happening tonight. Good card overall, and we’ll see what dumb shit happens in the main event.
DAZN, 9:00 pm ET, Daniel Jacobs vs Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, Julio Cesar Martinez vs Cristofer Rosales, Maurice Hooker vs Uriel Perez, Daniyar Yeleussinov vs Alan Sanchez.
Tonight streaming live on DAZN, Daniel Jacobs returns to action against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr in a fight that was probably a lot more trouble to make than it’s going to turn out having been worth.
Without going into a ton of detail you likely already know, Jacobs-Chavez was originally targeted for Vegas, but Nevada suspended Chavez for evading VADA tests, so the fight was moved to Phoenix. There was a question of it actually happening until this week, when a Nevada judge ruled it could go ahead, basically. Then Chavez couldn’t make weight on Thursday, so they changed the limit from 168 to 173 at the last minute.
The show will also feature Julio Cesar Martinez facing Cristofer Rosales for the vacant WBC flyweight title, plus Maurice Hooker in a 144-pound catchweight bout against Uriel Perez, and more.
Martinez/Rosales are brawling.
Martinez can really, really fight.
Rosales gonna be pissing blood for a week after all these body shots. Feels like Martinez ends it here in the 8th.
And there it is. Good stoppage. The left hand from Martinez is just lethal.
I'm going to take a wild guess and say everyone itt is team Jacobs.
Think that’s a safe assumption.
Julio looks massive in there. This is wild.
2-1 JCC Jr. Hm.
Hahaha. Fuck him.
I think he quit because his nose was bleeding
This crowd. Holy shit.
That was wild lol
When you think a Chavez Jr fight become more of a shit show, this happens
I was behind and I can’t believe this fool quit again. I told my wife Jacobs was a great guy and the end of the fight him being gracious was proof. My wife is throwing stuff at my tv.
Despite the best efforts of last night, this sport continues on with a quality main event.
FOX, 8:00 pm ET, Tony Harrison vs Jermell Charlo 2, Efe Ajagba vs Iago Kiladze.
Harrison-Charlo 2 is a big rematch for both, about a year after the first fight. Harrison hasn’t fought since, postponing the rematch with an injury, and Charlo fought Jorge Cota in June instead, smashing Cota in three. Charlo feels he was robbed last year (most people do), and he’s looking to get what he sees as his WBC 154-pound title back. Ajagba is a hard-hitting heavyweight prospect you want to see.
Harrison, 29, took that 154-pound belt on Dec. 22, 2018, winning a stunning and criticized decision over Charlo, also 29. The two were supposed to rematch on June 23 in Las Vegas, but Harrison pulled out with an injury, which Charlo believes was faked. Harrison hasn’t fought since last year’s win, and Charlo beat Jorge Cota on that June 23 date instead.
The co-feature will see heavyweight prospect Efe Ajagba take on Iago Kiladze, while lightweight prospect Karlos Balderas opens the show against Rene Tellez Giron.
Ajagba in the ring on FOX. Big-time HW to watch.
Ajagba down oh my god
This is absolutely crazy
Legit insane. Kiladze out on his feet, Efe thinks he's going down and steps back, ref doesn't step in, and Kiladze lands a right hand bomb for a knockdown.
Good stoppage there. He's seeing four of Ajagba right now.
I am behind but so IDK what happens but the ref is stupid for letting the fight continue after that knock down. Balderes was out.
Spence in the house. Still amazing that dude is alive.
That stoppage seemed weird after he let it go earlier. Seemed like Balderes was trying to time it to get the most rest. IDK what the ref was doing in that fight.
About to start the co-main event so sorry if I am repeating stuff already discussed.
Spence says he's coming back in May or June. I dunno. Face still looks swollen, speech is slurred a bit.
I’m willing to say this early, this is the best I seen Charlo look
Good ass round. That was fun.
Harrison putting in some really good body work if he can stick around long enough to make it count.
A little behind (round 4 about to end) and imo Harrison seems to be fighting the smarter fight.
I think he is too. Similar to their first fight.
Frustrating from Charlo. Just throw and keep throwing, press him.
I’m just about caught up. Charlo just came out headhunting and seems not to have a backup plan.
Goddamn, what a finish from Charlo. Stoppage felt a little early to me though.
Thank god because who knows how those scorecard would go
should have been stopped at the 2nd knockout
Cards had Charlo ahead. Hm.
Yeah, that would've been fine. Those were massive shots on the 2nd KD. Once Reiss let it go though, should've given it more time. All those shots were being blocked.
I agree but he needed to punch back or hold.
Harrison taking the L pretty hard.
Wilder/Fury set for Feb 22 in Vegas
ESPN crew and production.
Tank Davis nearly a pound and a half over the 135 limit for his fight against Yuriorkis Gamboa tomorrow, smh.
Dude needs to get the fuck away from Broner and get his head on
do you know if he made weight afterwards?
He did. 134.75. So, we've got a fight and the (vacant) belt is still on the line.
