A massive fight card is planned for Saturday afternoon and evening at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California. In the SHOWTIME-televised main event (10:30PM ET/PT), Amir Khan takes on Carlos Molina in a 12-round super lightweight bout.

Khan came in at 139.75 lb, the same as Molina (17-0-1, 7KO), who takes a huge step up in class.

Khan is looking for his first win in more than 17 months, having lost two straight. The former 140 lb. titlist suffered a devastating 4th round knockout loss to Danny Garcia this past summer, having since parted ways with trainer Freddie Roach in favor of the red-hot cornerman Virgil Hunter.

The televised co-feature covers the continued comeback of Alfredo Angulo, who enjoyed an emotional return to the ring last month. The Mexican slugger weighed in just over the super welterweight limit of 154,5 lb for his chief support bout against Jorge Silva, who weighed in at 156 lb.

Opening the Showtime telecast is a heavyweight bout between Deontay Wilder and Kelvin Price. Wilder - who captured Olympic Bronze in the 2008 Summer Games - weighed 223.5 lb., while Price checked in at 240 lb.

The two were slated to face off earlier this year, only for Price to be forced to pull out due to injury.

Kicking off the day's festivities is a live broadcast on CBS (Saturday, 4:30PM ET/1:30PM PT), marking the sport's return to the network in more than 15 years. Headlining the free TV show is all-action bantamweight titlist Leo Santa Cruz, who faces Alberto Guevara in a scheduled 12-round title defense. Both fighters weighed 117.5 lb, just below the bantamweight limit.

Wedged in between the two shows, Showtime will continue its recent trend of airing select undercard bouts on sister network Showtime Extreme (Saturday, 9:00PM ET). Unbeaten welterweight Shawn Porter will headline that portion of the evening, facing former lightweight titlist Julio Diaz in a crossroads bout.

Porter came in at a fit and trim 146 lb, while Diaz tipped the scales at 146.75 lb.

Opening the Showtime Extreme card is another fighter on the comeback trail. Unbeaten prospect Frankie Gomez looks to put more separation between present day and his troubled past as he faces Pawel Miranda in a scheduled eight-round welterweight bout.

Gomez came in at 143.75 lb. for his second bout of the year, also doubling as his delayed Showtime debut. A previous attempt to have him headline on Shobox was thwarted by out-of-ring troubles.

[QUOTE=fceeviper]I can't wait to attend this card![/QUOTE] It's an all day event should be good. Santa Cruz, Angulo, Wilder and Khan I think all fights have KO written all over them
