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.
