There will be a pair of championships on the line this Saturday as Showtime puts together a three-fight main card in San Antonio. Jermell Charlo and Brian Castano square off in the main event with the undisputed junior middleweight crown on the line, but the lightweight division offers a little something as well. Ronaldo Romero will put his WBA interim lightweight title on the line against last minute addition Anthony Yigit.

The full fight card will kick off at 9 p.m. ET and will air on Showtime. Romero and Yigit will likely make their ring walks sometime after 9:45 p.m., depending on the length of the first fight and how the preliminary non-televised portion of the card lasts.

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. They sometimes offer free trials, so be sure to check out their site to see what’s available.
