Tonight at 9 pm ET on Showtime, Chris Colbert and Tugstsogt Nyambayar meet in the main event of a doubleheader from Carson, Calif., in a 12-round junior lightweight fight for the interim WBA title.
The show will actually open with the Davis-Barrios replay from last week. When the live fights kick off, we’ll have live coverage, including highlights and updates for both fights, in this stream:
Colbert, a rising contender, was originally supposed to face veteran Yuriorkis Gamboa. But when Gamboa pulled out, featherweight contender Nyambayar stepped up on short notice to his credit, and to Team Colbert’s credit, they took what really might be a much tougher fight on that same short notice.

In the co-feature, lightweights Michel Rivera and Jon Fernandez will meet in a 10-round bout, each looking to stake a claim to some real estate at 135. The card was also originally meant to be a three-fight bill, but junior welterweight prospect Richardson Hitchins suffered an injury and is out of his planned bout with Darwin Price.
Still, two good matchups on paper tonight. Join us!
