Artur Beterbiev and Jerwin Ancajas defend their IBF titles tonight on ESPN.

Artur Beterbiev and Jerwin Ancajas are set for IBF title defenses tonight on ESPN, and we’ll be here with live updates and discussion for the show, but this is going to be something of a skeleton coverage, as our main focus this evening is on Canelo vs Jacobs.

Still, the thread is open for those of you watching these fights, and I’ll have them on myself, keeping tabs as best I can.

Beterbiev is defending the IBF light heavyweight title against Radivoje “Hot Rod” Kalajdzic in the main event, and Jerwin Ancajas is defending the IBF super flyweight title against Ryuichi Funai. Between them, hometown prospect Gabriel Flores Jr will also be in action.

The fights start at 6:30 pm ET with the prelims streaming on ESPN+, and continue at 10 pm ET on ESPN. The fights air live in the United Kingdom on BoxNation, starting at 2:30 am local time.
