Who Will Be Appearing On PBC On FOX’s Return To Action?
For the first time since March, PBC on FOX is set to make its comeback. Several young stars will be making the trek to the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The first of many events have been announced.
As previously reported, PBC will have a main event that features Thomas Dulorme and Jamal James. Originally moved for August 11, the two will now compete on the FOX and FS1-associated broadcast of Premier Boxing Champions on August 8. Both will be fighting for the vacant interim WBA Welterweight Title. This is according to Boxing Scene.
The 30-year-old Dulorme (25-3-1) is coming off of a unanimous decision win over Terrel Williams back in September. He is 1-1-1 in his last three fights, having drawn with Jessie Vargas for the WBC Silver Welterweight Title before the Williams bout.
James (26-1) is on a six-fight win streak dating back to 2017. After losing to Yordenis Ugas back in 2016, “Shango” has managed to win four of his last six fights inside the Minneapolis Armory. The Minneapolis native’s last bout was a unanimous decision win over Antonio DeMarco in July.
FOX’s coverage of PBC will begin at 8 p.m. ET. The co-feature will be David Morrell (2-0) v. Lennox Allen (22-0-1) for the interim WBA Super-Middleweight TItle. Morrell made his debut in 2019 and has two wins via KO. Allen started his career in 2004 and won his last bout in February 2019 via unanimous decision. He has 14 wins via knockout.
Also on the main card will be Omar Juarez v. Willie Shaw. Juarez (7-0) made his debut in 2018. The 21-year-old won his last bout in February against Angel Martinez Hernandez. He has seven wins via knockout. Shaw (12-1) is on a three-fight win streak and has eight wins via KO.
Before that, FS1 will host up to three fights out of the seven total on the card. The FS1 matches will feature the following fighters:
- Vito Mielnicki Jr. (5-0) v. Chris Rollins (3-1)
- Mykal Fox (22-1) v. Lucas Santamaria (10-1-1)
PBC on FOX’s return coincides with PBC and Showtime announcing events up until December. The bouts will air on Showtime and PPV.
