How to watch Artem Dalakian vs. David Jimenez
Fight time for this one will begin at 2:00 p.m. ET and the ring walk is expected for 4:00 p.m. ET. The fight will be available for streaming on ESPN +.
Dalakian (21-0) currently holds the WBA flyweight title and will put it on the line along with his undefeated streak. This will be his first time back in the ring since 2021, when he defeated Luis Concepcion via ninth-round TKO. He has 15 knockouts in his career but may have a tough time getting No. 16 this week.
Jimenez (12-0) will get a big title shot here but will have an uphill battle against the veteran. He’s hot now with three wins in 2022, so there is no rust to knockoff like his opponent has. Jimenez has nine knockouts and has only gone the distance three times. This will only be his second 12-round bout in his career, so his stamina in this one could be something to look out for.
