The main event should be pretty good, Otherwise it looks like a pretty standard Fight Night event.

At the moment there are 11 fights on the card.  One was dropped this week for COVID and another was cancelled when a fighter weighed in at 147 for what was originally a bantamweight fight.

There's also another of those weird celebrity boxing things.  This one is headlined by Jake Paul vs Ben Askren.  Another familiar name on the prelims is former UFC heavyweight champ Frank Mir.  The fights are on a streaming site called Triller.  No doubt there will be alternate means of watching as well.

It appears Askren and Mir are just showing up for the paycheck, and neither appears to be in fighting shape.

Former welterweight Askren came in at 191 pounds.

Frank Mir weighed in at 276 pounds, 70 pounds heavier than his opponent at 206.

My guess is both Askren and Mir are there to lose and get an easy payday.

Basketball went into overtime, so it's on ESPN2 for now instead of the main ESPN channel.

First fight has been pushed to 7:30.  Looks like they lost another one, so they're burning time talking until then

Kimura is VERY interested in what I am doing.  I'm sure it has nothing to do with the food delivery arriving a little bit ago...

B Screen is just waiting for Washed Boxing to start, but otherwise, it may change to vidja games, depending on if you folks get anymore entertaining. 😛 Monitor all the way to the left is cleaning a virus-riddled box for a client, so I'm technically getting paid to do this!

Lemme see ya setups, FFFFU Crew!

So you mean to tell me that there's sites that allow you to change your bet WHILE the fight is still going on?  Did a buncha folks lose boatloads of money because they were hammering on the button that it'd end in the 1st? xD

Umm.....he realizes he gets punched in the head for a living, yeah?  "Medicine" is also quite a dubious word there, ain't it?

And his nickname is "Hairy"   No shiat.

C'mon!  You KNOW Buffer has been waiting all day to say it!

I hate the P3 Dancing Douche commercial.


/still beats any Proper Twelve commercial, though.

They used to say it in LFA, but Dana has standards...

Prrrrretty sure that image won't get me a timeout, but if, by some hypocritical chance it does, I'll still be on the Disco Server!

Bush's leg is an early (and pretty weak) contender for Ugly Tattoo of the Night Bonus

I'd wager that that was a company move rather than a personal choice
