Devon Alexander and Ivan Redkach meet in tonight’s FS1 main event.

Tonight at 8 pm ET on FS1, with prelim coverage starting at 6 pm ET on FS2, Devon Alexander returns in a PBC main event against Ivan Redkach from San Jacinto, California, headlining a tripleheader on FS1.

Patrick L. Stumberg will be here with live coverage.

Alexander, 32, is a former two-division titleholder looking to get his career back on track after a run of outside-the-ring issues and then some bad luck. He fought twice in 2018, drawing with Victor Ortiz and losing a split decision to Andre Berto, both fights where he could easily have gotten his hand raised. He returns now with a new trainer in Roy Jones Jr, hoping to start a new chapter in his career.

The hard-fighting Redkach, 33, has worked with Shane Mosley in his recent camp, and has vowed to box more, but we’ll see if that holds up once in the ring.

In the co-feature, middleweights Hugo Centeno Jr and Willie Monroe Jr meet, and Nigerian heavyweight Onoriode Ehwarieme faces Rodney Moore in another bout.
