Live Boxing is Back on ESPN for June





Live boxing is back on ESPN, kicking things off Tuesday, June 9 with times and how to watch yet to be confirmed. Top Rank on ESPN will showcase the first in a full June lineup of events starting with WBO featherweight world champion Shakur Stevenson taking on Felix “La Sombra” Caraballo in a 10-round super featherweight bout.

ESPN’s networks will air live boxing all month, which will include multiple cards each week. These events will be closed to audiences and media, with only essential fight staff permitted on site who will be required to maintain suitable social distancing protocol standards.

“I would like to thank MGM Resorts and the Nevada State Athletic Commission for their assistance in helping to bring back world-class boxing,” said Top Rank chairman Bob Arum. “We are all looking forward to a spectacular summer of live boxing across ESPN platforms. Shakur is among the best young talents I’ve ever promoted, and he is going to put on a show on June 9.”
