Premier Boxing Champions' first boxing card of 2019 will not only feature a world title fight, but a number of prospects as well as Guillermo Rigondeaux.
PBC announced Rigondeaux will officially make his in-ring return on January 13 on a PBC card from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Rigondeaux will not be a part of the main card that will be on FS1, but will be fighting on a prelim card that will air right before it.
Rigondeaux will fight Giovanni Delgado in an eight-round bout on the prelim card, set to air live at 6:30 p.m. ET, which would lead into the main card starting at 8 p.m. ET. The prelim card will also feature 2016 Mexican Olympian fighting against an opponent to be named later in a six-round junior welterweight bout.
There is a swing bout on both the prelim and main cards, meaning they will be on the telecast provided that there is time to air the fight. Below is the main card for the January 13 PBC show in Los Angeles.
- Jose Uzcategui vs. Caleb Plant: IBF Super Middleweight title bout
- Moises Flores vs. Brandon Figueroa
- Joey Spencer vs. TBD
- Ryan Karl vs. Kevin Watts: TV Swing bout
Below is the full card for the prelims, set to start at 6:30 p.m. ET on FS1:
- Guillermo Rigondeaux vs. Giovanni Delgado
- Lindolfo Delgado vs. TBD
- Ahmed Elbiali vs. Allan Green: TV Swing bout
The card will be the first of nearly two dozen boxing cards that will air either on Fox or FS1 in 2019.
