We get a busy Friday night of championship boxing at the Bell Centre in Montreal. It’s a precursor to Friday’s Paul-Woodley 2 card, and while Saturday will be a bit of a circus, Friday brings a full card of serious boxing. The event will air on ESPN+ and is topped by a light heavyweight title fight between WBC and IBF champ Artur Beterbiev and fifth-ranked Marcus Browne.
The main card for the event begins at 8 p.m. ET. The ring walks for the Beterbiev-Browne main event can be expected to get going sometime in the 11 p.m. hour. That will all depend on how long the undercard lasts.
The unbeaten Beterbiev is a sizable favorite to win at DraftKings Sportsbook. He’s installed at -1100 while the 24-1 Browne is +650. Browne’s lone defeat came in 2019 when he lost a technical decision to Jean Pascal that cost him the WBA interim and WBC Silver light heavyweight titles.
