Top Rank To Have Two World Title Fights On September 22 ESPN Card

ESPN is set to hold its fourth Top Rank Boxing card and this one will feature two world title fights.

During the network's broadcast of the Terence Crawford vs. Julius Indongo junior welterweight unification fight, ESPN said Top Rank will return on September 22 in Tucson, Arizona. The headliner of that card will be WBO featherweight champion Oscar Valdez defending his title against Genesis Servania.

The other world title fight that ESPN will broadcast on that card is undefeated WBO super middleweight champion Gilberto Ramirez defending his title against Jessie Hart. Other notable fights on the card is Irish prospect Michael Conlan facing an opponent to be named and WBO lightweight mandatory challenger Felix Verdejo facing Antonio Lozada Jr.

The card will be the fourth in the Top Rank Boxing on ESPN series, which began in July with the Manny Pacquiao vs. Jeff fight for the WBO welterweight title. The September 22 card will air on ESPN at 10:30 p.m. ET. There is a fifth Top Rank card on ESPN scheduled for October 31 headlined by WBO super bantamweight champion Jessie Magdaleno.

Both Valdez and Ramirez fought on the same card this past spring, being a part of a triple-header of world title fights on a Top Rank-produced pay-per-view. Valdez and Ramirez defeated Miguel Marriaga and Max Bursak, respectively, on that pay-per-view card.
