Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux fight live stream.A full night of boxing capped off by one of the best-ever matchups on paper is on the cards on Saturday, as Vasyl Lomachenko and Guillermo Rigondeaux headline an ESPN boxing card from Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Date: Saturday, Dec. 9
Start time: 9 p.m. ET
Location: Madison Square Garden Arena — New York
Stream: Watch ESPN
The historic headline bout is backed up by a slew of excellent matchups. Mikaela Mayer will try and reach 3-0 as a professional when she battles Nydia Feliciano on the streamed preliminary card, while U.S. Olympic silver medalist Shakur Stevenson will open up the television broadcast up against Oscar Mendoza.
Finally, the very impressive Irish Olympian, Michael Conlan, will take on Luis Fernando Molina in the co-feature before the main event takes place. Two other bouts will take place on the streamed undercard, which you can see the details of below.
I think this is going to be a very, very good fight, a very interesting fight because Rigondeaux is not going to be able to gut out a big lead on points on Lomachenko. Therefore he will have to fight the entire fight, as long as it goes, to win.
That’s about as tough a comparison to live up to as imaginable in this sport. But Lomachenko, a southpaw who compiled an incomparable 396-1 record as an amateur, did not attempt to downplay his arrival on the professional scene. “I am not like most fighters. I want to be on the list of the greatest, best boxers in history,” he said, shrugging off the pressure of otherworldly expectations.
