NBCSN Fight Night Future Stars Series Airs Sunday
By Jake Donovan
As Main Events and NBC Sports Network gear up for its next installment of its ‘Fight Night’ series, its expansion series ‘Fight Night Future Stars’ airs Sunday evening.
The hour-long episode will offer tape-delayed coverage of select previously non-televised undercard bouts from the previous ‘Fight Night’ card. Sunday's offering (11:00PM ET) picks up preliminary bouts from the January 19 card in Uncasville, CT. The headlining bout will be an eight-round super middleweight contest between Marcus Upshaw and Vladine Biosse.
The ‘Fight Night’ portion of the card – which marked the series’ one-year anniversary - was topped by Sergey Kovalev’s two-round destruction of former light heavyweight champ Gabriel Campillo.
Sunday’s installment will be replayed on Monday, February 18 at 9:00PM and 10:00PM ET.
The next live episode of NBCSN Fight Night comes Saturday, February 23. Vyachaslev Glazkov faces Malik Scott in a scheduled 10-round battle of unbeaten heavyweights at the Paramount Theatre in Huntington, New York. The co-feature offers a local attraction, as Chris Algieri meets Jose Peralta Alejo in a welterweight battle scheduled for 10 rounds.
Select undercard bouts from the forthcoming February 23 card will air in March.
