This evening, Saturday, May 20, Bloody Elbow presents live fight night coverage of Showtime Championship Boxing Russell Jr. vs. Escandon. The card airs live tonight on Showtime with a fight time of 6:00 p.m. ET. We will have results and live discussion right here, and stay with Bloody Elbow for live updates and analysis all night.
This is a big card, with four fights emanating from two locations. Kicking things off is a big fight from London where Floyd Mayweather protege Gervonta Davis makes his first world title defense. He takes on England’s Liam Walsh in what should be a very good test for the young Davis. That fight will be presented on Showtime in a slight tape delay - our coverage here will be based on the Showtime airing (so please, no spoilers in the comments for those watching Showtime).
After that, we switch gears to the US for a triple-header headlined by Gary Russell, Jr. vs. Oscar Escandon. This is a showcase fight for champion Russell and should be easy work for him. Also on the card is a pair of decent undercard fights highlighting Andre Dirrell and Rances Barthelemy.
Here is the full fight card, with live streaming results available tonight.
