Foster-Nova, Cortes-Chevalier, and Carrington-Torres are all set to throw down live for your viewing pleasure on ESPN, ESPN Deportes, and ESPN+, kicking off at 9 p.m. ET. The main event sees O’Shaquie Foster defending his WBC junior lightweight world title against Abraham Nova. This fight marks Foster’s second go at keeping his title, after a nail-biting win against Rocky Hernandez last time.

The undercard ain’t nothing to sneeze at either. Andres Cortes is squaring up against Bryan Chevalier in a 10-round junior lightweight battle, promising fireworks. And to start the night off, Bruce Carrington is taking on Bernard Torres in what’s shaping up to be a cracking opener.

But wait, there’s more (just kidding, remember the rules). The undercard streaming on ESPN+ features Guido Vianello throwing punches against Moses Johnson, and Tiger Johnson aiming to keep his unbeaten streak against Paulo Galdino.

Promotion-wise, Top Rank’s pulling the strings, with a little help from Murphys Boxing and 12 Rounds Promotion. If you’re itching to see it live, Ticketmaster’s your friend.

At the press conference, the fighters were all chat. Foster’s talking big, saying he’s been through the wringer but he’s ready to shine. Nova’s all dreamy-eyed about his world title shot, itching to take control. Cortes is buzzing for his debut and hinting at a title in his future, while Chevalier’s ready to turn it into a classic Mexico vs. Puerto Rico showdown.

Carrington’s loving the home advantage and sizing up Torres, confident he’s got the goods to take him down. Torres, on the flip side, is just chuffed to be fighting at Madison Square Garden and reckons he’s ready to rock.
