Ortiz vs Solomon: Live coverage, 7:30 pm ET

Tonight at 7:30 pm ET on DAZN for the prelims, and 9:00 pm ET on DAZN for the main card, Golden Boy Promotions is back with a card heavy on promising fighters early in their careers from Fantasy Springs in Indio, California.

Wil Esco will be here for live round-by-round coverage of the main card at 9.

In the main event, 21-year-old welterweight Vergil Ortiz Jr looks to stay perfect as a pro as he faces 36-year-old veteran Brad Solomon, a once-beaten former prospect who just never quite panned out. Ortiz and Golden Boy are basically on the hunt for someone who can at least kind of test Ortiz right now. They tried Mauricio Herrera and Antonio Orozco earlier this year and both were beaten down.

The main card also features returns for Alberto Machado, the former 130-pound titleholder moving up to 135 tonight against Luis Porozo; Bektemir Melikuziev, the 23-year-old super middleweight from Uzbekistan who is trying to move fast in his pro career, taking on Vaughn Alexander this evening; and Alexis Rocha, the 22-year-old welterweight, who tonight faces Roberto Valenzuela.

On the prelims, we’ll see Luis Feliciano and Erik Bazinyan in action.
