Golden Boy announced that its Thursday Night Fights series will now be streamed on DAZN. The series is set to continue today as Mexican warrior Elwin “La Pulga” Soto (15-1, 11 KOs) makes the first defense of his WBO Light Flyweight World Title against Filipino contender Edward “The Heneral Fighting” Heno (14-0-5, 5 KOs) in a 12-round main event at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif.
Elwin Soto and Angel Acosta return to Fantasy Springs Casino, only this time on separate journeys.
Former undisputed cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (17-0, 13 KOs) made his heavyweight debut with a seventh round stoppage of late replacement Chazz Witherspoon (38-4, 29 KOs).
WBA light flyweight super champion Hiroto Kyoguchi (14-0, 9 KOs), 108, Japan, barely kept his belt as he withstood see-saw exchanges in the close range in earlier rounds, fortunately floored top ranked compatriot Tetsuya Hisada (34-10-2, 20 KOs), 107.75, midway in the ninth and pounded out a close but unanimous decision over twelve hard-fought rounds on Tuesday in Osaka, Japan.
Angel Acosta still remains a knockout every time out.
