Cinco de Mayo weekend is looming and boy are we in for a long weekend of fights!
I’ll mention later what we have in store for Friday’s fights but another event fans can enjoy online or even in person as HBO will be holding a free to the public event, the weigh-ins for Gennady “GGG” Golovkin vs. Vanes “The Nightmare” Martirosyan and Cecilia Brækhus vs. Kali Reis Friday May 4, more info below.
HBO will be making history by showing a first ever women’s championship bout.
Cecilia Brækhus (32-0) is the current undisputed champion at 147lbs, the Norwegian fighter will be taking on Rhode Island native Kali Reis (13-6-1). A huge step forward for women’s boxing indeed.
I haven’t witnessed either fighters in a bout but excited to see this one.
For those who cannot make it to the event (like myself) you can enjoy the weigh-ins at home, on your phone, or wherever you have an internet connection, as the good folks at HBO will be live streaming the event on Friday.
Enjoy in the link below!
