Two young lightweights, both 19 years old, will be back in action on the ESPN+ undercard of the PPV main event that features Devin Haney and Vasiliy Lomachenko fighting for the undisputed lightweight crown at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Emiliano Fernando Vargas, an unbeaten local talent from Las Vegas, will face a yet-to-be-announced opponent in a four-round contest, while Abdullah Mason, a southpaw from Cleveland, will take on Desmond Lyons in a six-round bout.

The undercard bouts, including Vargas’ comeback and Mason-Lyons, will be streamed live on ESPN+ starting at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT.

The stream will lead up to a two-fight ESPN broadcast that showcases the vacant WBO junior bantamweight world title clash between former world champion Andrew Moloney from Australia and undefeated former WBO flyweight champion Junto Nakatani from Japan. Moloney-Nakatani and the return of middleweight prospect Nico Ali Walsh will be aired live on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and ESPN+ at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
