Shawn Porter takes on Yordenis Ugas in tonight’s PBC main event.
Premier Boxing Champions is back this evening, starting with a pair of prelim fights at 6:30 pm ET on FS1, and then the show moves over to FOX at 8:00 pm ET for three more bouts, headlined by Shawn Porter defending the WBC welterweight title against Yordenis Ugas.
Porter (29-2-1, 17 KO) won his belt last September, beating Danny Garcia via decision over 12 rounds, and will be making his first defense tonight. Ugas (23-3, 11 KO) has won eight straight fights to get himself into this position.
The FOX card will also feature another welterweight bout between Abel Ramos (23-3-2, 18 KO) and Francisco Santana (25-6-1, 12 KO), set for 10 rounds, plus an eight-round heavyweight bout between prospect Efe Ajagba (8-0, 7 KO) and veteran Amir Mansour (23-3-1, 16 KO).
The prelim fights on FS1 are worth tuning in to see, too. Damien Vazquez (14-0, 7 KO), the younger brother of the great Israel Vazquez, will face former titleholder Juan Carlos Payano (20-2, 9 KO) in a bantamweight fight, and welterweight prospect Eimantas Stanionis (7-0, 5 KO) takes on Sammy Figueroa (11-1, 4 KO).
