The WBC interim lightweight championship is on the line Friday night as Joseph Diaz Jr. and Javier Fortuna are set to square off in Las Vegas. Coverage of the main card is set to start at 9 p.m. ET on DAZN. Ring walks for the main event are expected at approximately 11:30 p.m ET. This is the last fight before the main event, so we can expect the fighters to make their way to the ring in the 10 p.m. hour, with my guess being somewhere around 10:30 p.m. Of course, that depends on how long the three fights prior take to complete.

Diaz is a -230 favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook while Fortuna is a +180 underdog, and a draw is +1600. Diaz has moved up from super featherweight after missing weight in his last fight. Fortuna has won three straight fights at lightweight.
