Despite the cancellation of Jake Paul vs Hasim Rahman Jr, boxing fans still have three excellent options to choose from tonight. At the Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas, USA, someone’s “0” has got to go as undefeated welterweights Vergil Ortiz Jr (18-0) and Michael Mckinson (22-0) battle it out for a chance to take one step closer to a world title shot. In his last outing, Ortiz Jr obliterated Egidijus Kavaliauskas inside eight rounds while Mckinson beat Alex Martin over the ten-round distance.

Across the pond in Northern Ireland, Michael Conlan (16-1) is back in action five months after he was knocked out of the ring by Leigh Wood in Nottingham. This time he returns to his beloved Belfast to take on former world title challenger Miguel Marriaga (30-5). The Colombian boxer has fought for the WBO super featherweight title, WBO featherweight belt, and WBA (super) featherweight strap in the past.

Then, finally, over in England Dalton Smith (11-0) gets his long-awaited shot at the British super-lightweight title against Sam O’maison (17-3-1) in Sheffield.
