Brandon Rios meets Diego Chaves on HBO: Boxing After Dark this Saturday and we have all of the deers for you.
The night’s main event features Brandon Rios who will step inside the ring for the first time since losing to Manny Pacquiao in 2013. Rios has had epic showdowns with both Mike Alvarado and Pacquiao but has lost his last two fights.
The card also features Sergey Kovalev taking on Blake Caparello. Kovalev is the favourite here as the fight is undefeated and is known as being a knockout specialists. A Kovalev fight has not gone to decision since 2010 and his punching power and finishing capabilities make him one of the sport’s most popular current fighters. It’s expected that he will squash Blake Caparello but stranger things have happened in boxing.
Here’s the complete fight card:
Brandon Rios (31-2-1; 23 KOs) vs. Diego Chaves (23-1; 19 KOs) – Welterweight (147 lbs.)
Sergey Kovalev (24-0-1; 22 KOs) vs. Blake Caparello (19-0-1; 6 KOs) – Light Heavyweight (175 lbs.)
Jessie Vargas (24-0; 9 KOs) vs. Anton Novikov (29-0; 10 KOs) – Junior Welterweight (140 lbs.)
