Alexander vs Ortiz Tops PBC on ESPN Feb 17 – This Saturday night sees the PBC in Texas and on FOX as they bring us boxinglive from El Paso. The main event sees would-be welterweight contenders Devon Alexander and Victor Ortiz square off in a twelve round, non-title contest.
Both men are trying to get back to where they once were in the rankings and the pair are reported to be very focused for this fight. FOr Alexander, he is looking to push himself on a short turn around time, since he made his return from a two year layoff this past November. The eclectic Ortiz logged just one fight in 2017, a July win over veteran Saul Corral back in July.
The live event sees eleven fights in all on the slate. Undefeated Caleb Plant looks to go 17-0 as he faces battle-tested veteran Rogelio Medina and the PBC also is set to feature women’s action as featherweights Jennifer Han and Lizbeth Crespo meet for Han’s IBF world title.
