Figueroa vs Parejo: Danny Garcia and Adrian Grandos are set for Saturday night’s PBC main event (FOX, 8 pm ET) from just outside of Los Angeles in Carson, Calif., and both welterweights are expecting a good fight.
KlowdTV, 2:30 pm ET, Apti Davtaev vs Pedro Otas, Umar Salamov vs Norbert Dabrowski, Aslambek Idigov vs Ronny Landaeta. There is NO FREE TRIAL option for this — to watch it, you have to sign up for KlowdTV and choose the premium package option, which is $9.99.
It will be on their pay-per-view channel, but once you have the package, it’ll be free to watch. Davtaev, Salamov, and Idigov are a trio of Russian prospects with Salita Promotions, fighting in their home country.
Light heavyweight Salamov is probably the most promising of the bunch. We probably won’t have live coverage because I’m not a billionaire and don’t have another $10 to throw around like a madman.
It’s hard to believe but former two division champion Danny Garcia (34-2, 20 KOs) has become an afterthought. This Saturday night, he takes on Adrian Granados (20-6-2, 14 KOs) at the Dignity Health Sports Park, in Carson California and there really isn’t much buzz surrounding the contest. Its mostly because current WBO Welterweight champion Terence Crawford and Amir Khan have stolen much of the headlines, as they’ll be battling it out in Madison Square Garden on the same night.
It has mostly relegated Garcia to the sidelines. It isn’t a surprise. Crawford vs Khan is a much more compelling matchup than Garcia vs Granados. Garcia should seemingly roll right through Granados, or at least he should right?
For as much grief as Garcia gets from the fans, he is still a terrific fighter. His resume ranks amongst some of the very best in all of boxing. Wins over the likes of Zab Judah, Amir Khan, Lucas Matthysse, Lamont Peterson and others have solidified his position. His two losses to Keith Thurman and Shawn Porter were close fights that could have gone either way. In short, Garcia is an elite fighter. Granados on the other hand is a differently story entirely.
