Jermell and Jermall Charlo, Mairis Briedis, and Josh Taylor are the favorites to win the four-pack of world title main events we’ll see today, with two of the fights having very competitive lines, one that isn’t seen as a crazy mismatch, and one that is seen as a crazy mismatch

The Showtime pay-per-view where Jermell and Jermall will co-headline against Jeison Rosario and Sergiy Derevyanchenko, respectively, will start at 7 pm ET, and we’ll have full live coverage for the show starting then.

DAZN, 3 pm ET), we’ll finally see the conclusion of the World Boxing Super Series cruiserweight tournament, which began in late 2018, about 23 months ago to be exact.

Yuniel Dorticos is the defending titlist in the fight, as he has the IBF title, but Briedis is generally ranked as the No. 1 man in the division by independent outlets, including us, with Dorticos the No. 2 fighter.

Take, for instance, the fight in London (ESPN+, 2:30 pm ET), where Josh Taylor will defend the WBA and IBF junior welterweight titles against mandatory challenger Apinun Khongsong.

The mandatory part has to be noted, because Taylor would frankly be getting ripped apart for fighting someone this unproven in a world title fight otherwise. Khongsong has just one notable fight on his ledger, and beating Akihiro Kondo — with respect to Kondo — is not exactly beating Josh Taylor. Or close to it.
