Tomorrow’s ESPN card is good to go.

Saturday night’s ESPN card, featuring a pair of world title fights, is set, as everyone made weight on Friday in Stockton, California.

The fights will begin at 6:30 pm ET for the prelims streaming live on ESPN+, and continue at 10:00 pm ET with the main card on ESPN, featuring two world title fights and a showcase for prospect Gabriel Flores Jr, the hometown star.

In the main event, Artur Beterbiev (13-0, 13 KO) will defend his IBF light heavyweight title against Radivoje “Hot Rod” Kalajdzic (24-1, 17 KO). Beterbiev weighed in at 174.4, with Kalajdzic at 173, both under the 175-pound limit.
