SHOWTIME Sports will provide live streams of official fight week events in advance of this Saturday’s WBC Welterweight World Championship between former champions Danny Garcia (34-1, 20 KOs) and Shawn Porter (28-2-1 17 KOs). The three-fight telecast airs live on SHOWTIME from Barclays Center in Brooklyn at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
The SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING telecast also features top 147-pound contender Yordenis Ugas (22-3, 11 KOs) battling against Argentine Cesar Barrionuevo (34-3-2, 24 KOs) in a WBC welterweight title eliminator showdown. Heavyweight contender Adam Kownacki (17-0, 14 KOs) and former champion Charles Martin (25-1-1, 23 KOs) will open the telecast with a 10-round attraction.
In the livestreamed SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING COUNTDOWN, Five-division champion Amanda Serrano (34-1-1, 26 KOs) will attempt to best her own women’s boxing record when she faces Yamila Esther Reynoso (11-4-3, 8 KOs) for the vacant WBO Junior Welterweight World Title. A win would make Serrano a six-division world champion, joining Manny Pacquiao and Oscar De La Hoya as boxing’s only six-division champions.
