The California rematch of Canadian junior welterweights takes place on Thursday night.

Yves Ulysse Jr and Steve Claggett are set for tomorrow night’s Golden Boy DAZN Thursday Night Fights main event, which we once again stress does not air on DAZN, but will be on various regional TV outlets, and will also stream on both RingTV.com and via Facebook.

The RingTV.com stream will begin at 7:45 pm ET on Thursday night with the prelim bouts, and the main card is set to begin at 10:00 pm ET. Bad Left Hook will be here with live coverage tomorrow evening.

Ulysse (17-1, 9 KO) is looking to avenge the only loss of his pro career, a controversial split decision setback in Oct. 2017 to Claggett (27-5-2, 17 KO). Since their first meeting, Ulysse has gone 3-0, including a Dec. 2017 HBO-televised domination of Cletus Seldin, while Claggett has gone 1-1-1, losing to Danny O’Connor and drawing last time out with unbeaten Mathieu Germain in January.

Ulysse weighed in at 139.6 on Wednesday in Indio, California, with Claggett right at the limit of 140 pounds. The fight is set for 10 rounds. The WBA “gold” title will be on the line, if that interests you.
