Top Rank Boxing on ESPN heads to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma for a fun night of fights, headlined by Robson Conceição vs. Xavier Martinez and a feature of Muhammad Ali’s grandson, Nico Ali Walsh, on the live streaming portion preliminary undercard.
Conceição (16-1, 8 KOs) is a 2016 Olympic Gold medalist who represented Brazil and he is quickly becoming a top contender in the boxing world.
The Brazilian only has one professional loss and that was a close and controversial decision defeat to WBC super featherweight champion Oscar Valdez.
Many boxing fans including those in Brazil were outraged by the decision and felt Conceição did enough to win and outboxed Valdez to win the title.
Conceição isn’t concerned with the past anymore and wants to continue winning to land another title shot and finally capture championship glory and tonight he will have to dispose of Xavier Martinez to continue his journey to another world title shot.
Xavier Martinez (17-0, 11 KOs) is an undefeated fighter from California and he is ready to make a name for himself on Saturday night by going for an upset against a decorated Brazilian boxer who is highly favored.
Martinez knows he is going to be up against all odds but he wants to pull off the shock upset and really believes in his abilities.
The co-main event will put Rene Tellez Giron against last minute replacement Giovanni Cabrera.
Also on the card in the live stream portion is female fighters Pink Tyson and Carla Torres going toe to toe in a women’s super featherweight scrap.
