Redkach scored arguably the biggest win of his career when he stopped Alexander in the sixth round after dropping him three times. The win extended Redkach's win streak to three fights while for Alexander, the loss continues his struggles in the ring as he is now winless in his last three fights. Ever since he lost the IBF welterweight title to Shawn Porter in 2014, Alexander has won just two of his last seven fights with his last victory taking place in 2017.

While the FS1 broadcast didn't have to compete with the NBA Finals, it did have direct competition with the Stanley Cup Finals (which averaged 2.93 million viewers) and the Anthony Joshua vs. Andy Ruiz Jr. fight that was streamed on DAZN.

PBC's next broadcast will take place on June 23 in Las Vegas. The card, which will be televised on Fox, will be headlined by Jermell Charlo vs. Jorge Cota and also feature Guillermo Rigondeaux vs. Julio Ceja in a WBC super bantamweight title eliminator.
