Ring City USA is back tonight from Salinas, Puerto Rico, featuring a renewal of the Mexico vs Puerto Rico rivalry in the 10-round lightweight main event, as Alberto Machado faces Angel Fierro.
Fights start at 6:30 pm ET streaming for free on Twitch (which is also how international viewers can watch the full card), and the main card goes live at 9 pm ET on NBCSN. We’ll have fight-by-fight results as they come in, plus live discussion and commentary in the comments section below.
Puerto Rico’s Machado is a former 130-pound titlist looking to become a contender at 135, while Fierro is on on pretty short notice and looking to make a big mark of his own with what would be an upset if he can pull off the win.
