David Morrell Jr. (9-0, 8 KOs) and Sena Agbeko (28-2, 22 KOs) are finally going to face off. The two fighters were supposed to meet in the undercard of the Ryan Garcia vs. Gervonta Davis fight in April, but a medical issue from Agbeko prevented the Nevada boxing commission from licensing the fight, so it was postponed. Morrell is the favorite, and after his devastating first round KO of Yamaguchi Falcao, Agbeko’s replacement for the April fight, most people are expecting this fight not to go the distance.
But perhaps the bigger story of the night is the end of Showtime boxing. Showtime has shuttered its sports broadcasting wing, and that means tonight is the final Showtime boxing event. The broadcaster has been a staple of the sport for decades now, starting back in 1986. Showtime will likely play a montage of big boxing moments at some point during the event, so look forward to that.
Morrell vs. Agbeko is being broadcast on Showtime, which means you can access it through the Paramount+ streaming service if you have the Showtime add-on. It starts streaming at 9:00 p.m. ET tonight, Saturday, December 16. Keep reading to see how to watch boxing for free this weekend.
