In addition to the main event, there are some interesting crossover fights happening on the Jake Paul vs Ben Askren undercard.
The event has been billed as a real show with Justin Bieber, The Black Keys, Doja Cat, Saweetie, Diplo, Major Lazer and Mt. Westmore all being tipped to perform, but beyond that, we’ll also get a full slate of boxing fights.
The three scheduled bouts that will kick off the night are Quinton Randall vs William Jackson, Lorenzo Simpson vs Francisco Torres and Junior Younan vs Jeyson Minda. Within these contests, the expectation is that we could see some rising contenders emerge.
From there, it all gets a little bit wild.
Joe Fournier vs. Reykon
Joe Fournier is an English entrepreneur who initially started off in the fitness and then nightclub industry before shifting over to professional boxing. In the sport, he’s been able to accumulate an 8-0 (1) record with his last fight taking place in 2016.
On the flip side you’ve got Reykon, a Colombian reggaeton singer who will be making his boxing debut after a recent altercation with Fournier in Miami.
Steve Cunningham vs. Frank Mir
Everyone loves when heavyweights scrap it out but this one is particularly unusual.
Steve Cunningham holds a 29–9–1 pro boxing record but hasn’t actually fought since competing on the Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor card – although he does have a knockdown over Tyson Fury to his name.
His opponent, Frank Mir, is a former UFC heavyweight champion and one of the division’s most recognisable faces.
Regis Prograis vs. Ivan Redkach
This one should be fun.
Regis Prograis aka “Rougarou” has a 25-1 pro record and is widely considered to be one of the best light welterweights on the planet. Ivan Redkach has also been around the block at 23–5–1, but he hasn’t fought since a unanimous decision defeat against Danny Garcia in January 2020.
If nothing else, this has the potential to produce fireworks.
