Joshua Franco and Andrew Moloney take the ring Saturday night, as Franco looks to defend his WBA “regular” junior bantamweight title. The fight is the third bout between the two in over a year. Their most recent fight last November ended with a controversial no contest decision prompting the WBA to immediately call for a rematch.

The undercard will feature eight matchups leading into the main event, headlined by the professional debut of Muhammed Ali’s grandson Nico Ali Walsh when he takes on Jordan Weeks in a four-round middleweight bout. Below them will be Arnold Barboza Jr. looking to remain unbeaten as a pro when knuckling up with Antonio Moran.

The main event will start sometime in the 11 p.m. ET hour, but it will be preceded by over four hours of fights. The preliminary card starts at 6 p.m. and the main card starts at 10 p.m. It will air live on ESPN and stream at WatchESPN.
