- Updated: February 22, 2013
EPIX makes its 2013 boxing debut with two title fights on Saturday, March 16 live from London on both the Epix channel and EpixHD.com.
A title unification bout will take place when Mexican Miguel Vasquez (IBF) takes on Europe’s Ricky Burns (WBO) in the lightweight division. The winner could possibly unify all three belts with a challenge against WBC titleholder Adrien ‘The Problem’ Broner. Both Vasquez and Burns have a combined 68 wins against only five total losses.
The WBO light heavyweight title will be up for grabs when champion Nathan Cleverly defends against challenger Robin Krasniqi for a scheduled twelve rounds or less.
Two other bouts are scheduled with a start time of 4:30 PM ET
