Russell-Escandon, Davis-Walsh Schedule!
The schedule for what will take place on Saturday, May 20th at the MGM National Harbor Casino in Oxon Hill, MD is rather unique and needs some explanation. You should know by now that there will be two Beltway Boxers defending their world titles in two separate locations and both bouts will be shown on Showtime.
Baltimore, MD's Gervonta "Tank" Davis defends his IBF Super Featherweight title against fellow undefeated boxer Liam Walsh of London, England at the Copperbox Arena in London. That bout will be followed by "Mr." Gary Russell, Jr. of Capitol Heights, MD defending his WBC Featherweight championship against Oscar Escandon of Colombia at the MGM National Harbor.
Here is how the schedule will play out on Saturday:
The doors will open at 3:45 PM ET and the first live bout at MGM will start at 4 PM.
The Davis-Walsh telecast begins at 6 PM and will be shown in the MGM Theater.
Immediately after the Davis-Walsh bout concludes, the three televised bouts will start at the MGM Theater. That includes the main event as well as the Interim IBF Super Middleweight World Championship between Andre Dirrell and Jose Uzcategui plus two-division world champion Rances Barthelemy in a WBA 140-pound world title eliminator against Kiryl Relikh.
