We’ll have live coverage for you starting from 7 pm ET with the prelims on YouTube, and then continuing with the main PPV card at 9 pm ET, with live round-by-round for all four of those fights from Wil Esco.

The main card is set to get underway at 9 p.m. ET / 2 a.m. GMT with the main event ringwalks scheduled for 11:15 p.m. ET / 4:15 a.m. GMT. These timings are subject to change due to the length of the undercard fights.
The knockout artists will finally let their fists do the talking on Saturday as Davis defends the WBA (regular) lightweight title against Romero from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Davis and Romero were set to lock horns in December. But Romero was the subject of a sexual assault case and was subsequently pulled from the fight and replaced by Isaac Cruz. The case was later dropped, which cleared the way for Romero to get the fight he's been looking for.
Cruz gave 'Tank' a more challenging fight than many expected. But when it was all said and done, Davis showed championship heart in the 12th and final round to win by unanimous decision. The 27-year-old finally gets to settle the score and looks to quiet all the talking once and for all.
“We’re ready, and we’ve been in camp," Davis said at their press conference in April. "This isn’t our first time getting ready for ‘Rolly’. We saw how he choked up when the lights are in his face. We’ll see how he reacts when everyone is cheering against him on fight night."
On the other hand, Romero competed two times in 2021 and won both of those inside the distance over Avery Sparrow and Anthony Yigit. For Romero, it's the opportunity he's been looking and one he plans on taking advantage of.
