Nery-Alameda, Wallin-Browne Part of Showtime Triple, March 28

During tonight’s Gary Russell Jr. vs. Tugstsogt Nyambayar WBC Featherweight World Title main-event telecast, Showtime Sports will announce an exciting tripleheader set for March 28 at Park Theater at Park MGM in Las Vegas headlined by former world champion Luis Nery against fellow undefeated contender Aaron Alameda in a WBC Super Bantamweight Title Eliminator.

The SHOWTIME BOXING: SPECIAL EDITION event begins at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT and is Presented by Premier Boxing Champions. A 10-round co-main event with feature heavyweight contenders Otto Wallin and Lucas Browne.

The telecast will open with light heavyweights Joseph George taking on Marcos Escudero in a 10-round rematch of their November showdown on ShoBox: The New Generation that saw George win a close split decision.

Nery (30-0, 24 KOs) and Alameda (25-0, 13 KOs) is all-Mexico matchup between two fighters who have combined for 55 wins against no defeats.

Sweden’s Wallin (20-1, 13 KOs) will make his return to Las Vegas where last June he dropped a decision against former unified heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. The fight was nearly ended after Fury suffered a cut above his right eye, but was allowed to continue.

Wallin made his U.S. debut last April on ShoBox. Australia’s Browne (29-2, 25 KOs) won his first 25 pro fights, including a stoppage of Ruslan Chagaev in 2016 to capture the WBA heavyweight title.

And with Vargas at PBC I expect to see him in a huge fight against Nery this year. :boxing:

[QUOTE=BigZ44;20377046]Really weird card. [B]How the hell is Alameda getting an eliminator with his resume?[/B] Probably means we will see Nery fighting for Vargas' vacated belt sooner rather than later[/QUOTE] He passed the WBC eye test so I'd say he's a…
