ESPN Deportes will air live coverage of the fights beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/ 7:00 p.m. PT, while ESPN3 will live stream all the fights beginning with the undercard bouts at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT.

Maldonado, Jr., a 26-year-old native of Albuquerque, New Mexico, is coming off three impressive victories. His most recent victory was against Cano in a back-and-forth fight in which Maldonado, Jr. dug deep to overcome a fourth-round knockdown before eventually winning by split decision. The new WBC FECARBOX champion is a young but seasoned professional with tough fights against Amir "Young Master" Imam and Michael "The Artist" Perez on his resume.
 
Barroso, a heavy-handed 34-year-old southpaw out of El Tigre, Venezuela, is a former interim world lightweight champion who has scored knockouts in 18 of his 19 victories, including a fifth-round technical knockout over longtime contender Kevin "The Hammer" Mitchell. Barroso is coming off the lone defeat of his career to former WBA World Lightweight Champion Anthony "Million Dollar" Crolla, and is hungry to get back on the winning track.
 
Maldonado, Jr. vs. Barroso, a 10-round super lightweight fight for the WBC FECARBOX title, is presented by Golden Boy Promotions. The event is sponsored by Tecate, Born BOLD and Hennessy "Never Stop, Never Settle." ESPN Deportes will transmit the fights live from Fantasy Springs Resort Casino at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT. ESPN3 will live stream of all the fights on the card beginning at approximately 8:30 p.m. ET/ 5:30 p.m. PT.

I guess Golden Boy Promotions on ESPN is winding down since this is on ESPN Deportes & ESPN3 only.

Barroso had the English lions on the run. If it wasn't for Crolla, he would have held all sorts of bragging rights plus a title. Some times, just stopping a threat is a big deal.

Barroso long lay off might affect him.

Comment by BigZ44 on 08-10-2017

Interesting fight, what will Barroso have after a long layoff and moving up in weight? He was viewed as a top 5 guy at 135 before the loss to Crolla. I would think Cano should beat the Argentine, but he…
