Oleksandr Usyk vs Witherspoon, Dmitry Bivol vs Lenin Castillo, Jessica McCaskill vs Erica Farias II.

Usyk is no longer coming — Usyk is HERE. The former undisputed cruiserweight champion finally returns and makes his move to heavyweight, facing Witherspoon in this main event from Chicago. Who knows? It could turn out to be something goofier than expected. Bivol-Castillo is for Bivol’s 175-pound title, and it’s not a very good fight, but here we are. Castillo is a competent fighter, but has never been considered a contender. McCaskill-Farias is a rematch of a fight from just about one year ago at the same venue in Chicago, McCaskill’s hometown. McCaskill is one of the more exciting of the name women’s fighters out there right now.
