The main event likely will start sometime around 11 pm ET, maybe a bit before or after. If you need any more info on how to watch, click here!

Main Card (ESPN and ESPN+, 10:00 pm ET)
- Artur Beterbiev (18-0, 18 KO) vs Joe Smith Jr (28-3, 22 KO), light heavyweights, 12 rounds, for Beterbiev’s WBC and IBF titles and Smith’s WBO title
- Robeisy Ramirez (9-1, 5 KO) vs Abraham Nova (21-0, 15 KO), featherweights, 10 rounds
Prelims (ESPN+, 6:00 pm ET)
Note: ESPN+ are listing the prelims starting at 6:30 pm ET, but emcee Mark Shunock said 6 pm ET repeatedly at the weigh-in, so we’re listing 6 pm ET so that nobody gets confused and misses anything. Often one of these things — ESPN+ early listing or Shunock at the weigh-in — is wrong, so just a heads-up.
