Golden Boy Promotions heads to the Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas for a stacked night of boxing headlined by Vergil Ortiz Jr. vs. Michael McKinson and co-featuring a women’s unified flyweight championship Marlen Esparza vs Eva Guzman, live on DAZN.
The fight card will also have former world champion Maurice Hooker taking on flamboyant Blair Cobbs in a 10-round welterweight bout, and super middleweights Bektemir Melikuziev and Sladan Janjanin going toe to toe.
Vergil Ortiz has a perfect KO ratio of 18 wins, no losses and all 18 of his wins by knockout. The young Texan who trains out of California, is on the cusp of superstardom and his fan friendly style will help him draw in the fight fans.
Tonight he takes on fellow undefeated fighter Micheal McKinson of Great Britain in a 12- round main event on DAZN.
The co-main event has US Olympian and unified WBC/WBA women’s flyweight champion Malen Esparza defending her titles against the hard-hitting Eva ‘La Ley’ Guzman in a 10-round women’s championship.
