ESPN3 To Air Povetkin vs. Perez Plus Undercard

By Jake Donovan

Stateside fight fans won’t have to stress over finding grainy (and illegal) streams to catch the loaded fight card in Moscow. ESPN plans to air the card—topped by Alexander Povetkin and Mike Perez in a heavyweight title eliminator—through its various platforms, it was announced Thursday afternoon.

The show will air live on ESPN’s streaming network, ESPN3.com (Friday. 12:30 p.m. ET). ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes will televise the heavyweight fight via same-day tape-delay at 9 p.m. leading into the Boxcino 2015 finals on the series finale of ESPN Friday Night Fights. 

In addition to Povetkin-Perez, the following bouts will also air live on ESPN3.com

· The 12-round WBC World Cruiserweight title fight between titleholder Grigory Drozd (39-1, 27 KOs) and Lukasz Janik;

· A cruiserweight bout between 2008 Olympic gold medalist Rakhim Chakhkiev (22-1, 17 KOs) and undefeated Junior Wright (13-0-1, 11 KOs);

· A cruiserweight matchup between undefeated Dmitry Kudryashov (17-0, 17 KOs) and Vikapita Meroro (28-4, 14 KOs).
