Saturday night brings a huge junior middleweight showdown on Showtime when Jermell Charlo and Brian Castano meet in San Antonio. They’ll be fighting for the undisputed junior middleweight title, but it’s not the only title on the line. Rolando Romero will defend his WBA interim lightweight title 13-0 record against Anthony Yigit, who is 24-1-1.
Romero was scheduled to face Austin Dulay up until a little over a week ago. Dulay withdrew citing a knee injury, while Romero was quick to cite a “panic attack.” Regardless of the reason, Dulay is out and Yigit replaced him on the card. Yigit previously held a junior welterweight title. Romero has one successful title defense and another non-title win since claiming the WBA title.
The full fight card will kick off at 9 p.m. ET and will air on Showtime. If you don’t have a Showtime subscription through your TV provider, you have the option to stream the fight online or via the Showtime app, as long as you have a subscription.

Romero is the favorite to win this bout, with moneyline odds at -425 on DraftKings Sportsbook. Yigit enters the fight with moneyline odds at +320.
