Saturday evening at Madison Square Garden (ESPN, 9 p.m. ET), Terence "Bud" Crawford (35-0, 26 KOs) will defend his WBO welterweight world title against Egidijus "Mean Machine" Kavaliauskas (21-0-1, 17 KOs), while the co-feature will see IBF lightweight world champion Richard Commey (29-2, 26 KOs) hoping to avoid the takeover in Teofimo Lopez (14-0, 11 KOs).

The ESPN opener will see Irish sensation Michael "Mick" Conlan (12-0, 7 KOs) hoping to turn back amateur nemesis Vladimir Nikitin (3-0, 0 KOs) in a 10-rounder at featherweight. Nikitin defeated Conlan twice as an amateur, including in their 2016 Olympic quarterfinal bout, a decision that sparked international controversy.

This is one solid card. ESPN must be blowing the rest of their 2019 budget on this card. Only 1 fighter on the entire card has a weak record of 16-6. The rest are all solid prospects and champs.
