Weekend Boxing Preview: April 26-27

Full Fight Schedule

Friday, April 26th

DAZN & Sky Sports
The Forum, Inglewood, CA

On Fridayโ€™s DAZN card you have Rungvisai VS Estrada 2, the first fight was an exciting fight, and Estrada closed out the fight with an exciting 12th round.  In my opinion it wasnโ€™t that close, I saw Rungvisai getting the better of the exchanges throughout the entire fight. We also have a unification bout at 122 LBS between Roman and Doheny.  Jessie Vargas is moving up to 154 LBS against Humberto Soto who recently upset Brandon Rios, and we get to see up and coming American prospect Anthony Sims Jr.
