    Top of the hour. :thumbsup:

    ESPN+ and its related family of cable networks have a full slate of event-related programming lined up in essentially a 12-hour block, including: highlight packages of both main event principals, replays of their recent or notable matches, both episodes of the "Blood Sweat & Years" preview series, the weigh-in special, and the Max On Boxing episode dedicated to it - with the rebroadcast of the latter two from 6pm EST serving as the official lead-in to live coverage at 7:30pm EST. All paraphernalia coverage will stream on + and be televised in English on ESPNNews and in Spanish on Deportes. The fight card itself will air on regular ESPN as well as on +.

    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.

    Lomachenko domination.

    Big mouths like Lopez do not rebound or recover well.

    Both ten-round chief supporting bouts are pretty good; for some reason BoxRec has Juan Alejandro Saucedo Ortiz vs. Arnold Barboza, Jr. rated a four-star bout (second highest possible, with Lomachenko vs. López awarded the rare 5 stars) and Josue Vargas Pérez vs. Kendo Castaneda only three stars...even though it would appear to feature the same matchmaking parity and combined level of quality between combatants, IMO. :nusenuse:

    Actually it would be cool if this were the start of a 140lb tourney, with the winners set to face one another. I'd be down to see bouts involving any combination of Saucedo, Barboza, Vargas, and Castaneda. :thumbsup:

    Lopez is a dangerous opponent , explosive and athletic. But Loma knows this game inside out and has no doubt seen many areas he can exploit and take advantage of.
    I think this is going to be a one sided undressing.

    I imagine Lomachenko-Teofemale won't actually happen until midnight EST?

    That all of course is predicated on their somewhat arbitrary points-based ranking system (which takes into account who you defeated, a sound operating principle in theory but omits factors like robberies or injured/rusty/declining opponents), which means there aren't editors at BR that necessarily consider Saucedo and Barboza that much better than Vargas and Castaneda...just that per their algorithm the former pair has defeated opponents with a higher numerical value.
