Gervonta Davis and Mario Barrios square off in Atlanta Saturday evening in a WBA junior welterweight title bout that headlines what should be a fun main card of boxing. The event will air on Showtime with the main card scheduled to start at 9 p.m. ET, per Showtime. The cable channel will also air it via live stream through Showtime Anytime.

Davis-Barrios is an intriguing fight with Davis taking a step up in weight to face a fighter in Barrios who has spent much of his career at 140 pounds. It’s a big challenge with Barrios’ title on the line and should make for an exciting close to the evening.

However, the night will feature several notable fights with some short- and long-term implications. The penultimate fight of the evening will see Erickson Lubin and Jeison Rosario square off in what is being described as a WBC super welterweight title eliminator. The winner could get a shot at the winner of July’s fight between Jermall Charlo and Brian Castano.

The main card will also include a WBA junior welterweight title eliminator between Batyr Akhmedov and Argenis Mendez. The winner would become the mandatory for the winner of the Davis-Barrios fight.
