This main event has been a mess. John Riel Casimero was set to defend his WBO bantamweight title against mandatory challenger Butler, who shouldn’t be a mandatory challenger, but violated BBBofC weight cutting guidelines and was removed from the fight. He seems likely to be stripped of the WBO title, but also maybe not, because we’re talking about boxing and a sanctioning body here. In any event, Sultan — who was basically on standby because Casimero has been totally unreliable for several months now — is now in, and it’s an interim title fight against Butler.
The 11:30 am start time is for the full show, which will be 11 fights in all. And as you can see, it’s a show chock full of compelling matchups.
