    IB's RBR disclaimer:

    DO NOT ASK FOR LINKS! Do not hint for them. Do not ask "what channel?". Do not make any post that could be interpreted as insinuating a link request, even if it sounds innocent (ie stuff like "Gee, I don't have a way to watch this" or "if only this was televised where I live...")


    The folks at ESB do not want to get sued and therefore have adopted a VERY strict policy of zero-tolerance on stream requests to cover their butts.


    Thank you.


    PS. My only other request is that, as a matter of courtesy, you refrain from posting spoilers if you are aware of undercard results that most people are going to see televised on delay. Please also don't spoil results from other unrelated events here. Thanks.

    Kopylenko has a solid chance tonight. He's underrated. Should have won the Butler fight. Should have stopped him. He's pretty good.

    I wouldn't write him off, although I expect Brant to be uber disciplined and try to repeat hus Baysangurov performance.

    Yeah, i think Brant UD is the most likely outcome here.

    I'm having second thoughts about the likelihood of a Gallimore upset here. At his best he would probably win this, but he appears to be totally mentally shot. Lubin and Teixeira losses can be forgiven but going close with Antonio Todd?

    I was looking at the prospect of an upset here myself. But I don't think it's on the cards. Looking at his two defeats a competitive Brant decision seems the most likely outcome. No one other than the underrated Brahmer has outboxed him and he was giving up quite a bit of size in that one and it's safe to say that Kopylenko doesn't have the venomous intent that Murata had in the rematch. Over and Brant are safe bets here I'd say.

    although i've never watched him , the guy porters fighting has a few solid wins , one on his record koed miguel vazquez and diego chavez , 22:1 betfair worth a punt , but for me joe smith at 2/1 is a great bet think alvarez beat win and loss were vs a shot kovalev smith has serious power and think he wins maybe even by knockout which you can get at 6/1

    Horrible wiki capping re. Porter/Formella. Porter will completly demolish this guy.

    It's already started, on ESPN+ but the main event will probably be in an hour and a half.

    He's pretty game for a fairly average and middle of the road former UFC fighter. I think as time goes on we'll see more and more MMA guys jump into boxing. Ryan Ford is another guy who made it decently far before losing and now is a highly demanded journeyman fighter. Probably makes more than he did as a middle of the road MMA fighter.

    Probably 4-0 Brant so far. Looks really sharp tonight
