Four titles will be on the line for the four-fight pay-per-view boxing card presented by Showtime on Saturday. In the main event, legendary boxer Manny Pacquiao will once again don the gloves as he tries to get his 61st win as a professional. He’ll be facing Adrien Broner for Pacquiao’s WBA world welterweight championship.

Saturday’s card begins at 9 p.m. ET with an estimated walkout time of around 12 a.m. for the main event. It will be broadcast live on Showtime pay-per-view, and live streamed online via Showtime. The card is supported by three other title bouts and three other undefeated competitors, as well as some other big names.

For the vacant WBC world bantamweight championship, Rau’shee Warren (16-2) will face Nordine Oubaali (14-0). Fan favorite Badou Jack (22-1-3) will face Marcus Browne (22-0) for the vacant WBC silver light heavyweight belt. The card will open with a bout between Alberto Guevara and Hugo Ruiz (38-4) for the interim WBA featherweight title.

Jhack Tepora was originally scheduled to face Hugo Ruiz in the pay-per-view opener, but Tepora came in so overweight that Ruiz will instead face Alberto Guevara.

There will be a five-fight undercard that will not be aired as part of the preview, but there are some notables on it, including George Kambosos Jr., Rey Perez and more.

Pacquiao has won three of his past five bouts dating back to his May 2015 loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr., and is coming off a seventh-round TKO victory over Lucas Matthysse. Jeff Horn bested him prior to that, in a very narrow decision victory.

Broner is coming off a loss to Mikey Garcia and a draw against Jessie Vargas. Prior to that, he had won six of his past seven bouts, and sorely needs a win to stay in the upper echelon of boxing at this stage of his career.
