It’s about that time again for Lydell Rhodes.

Rhodes (27-3-1, 13 KO’s) returns to the ring this weekend against former junior lightweight champion champion Jason Sosa (22-3-4, 15 KO’s) in the main event of an ESPN + card from the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia. Rhodes vs. Sosa was originally set as the co-feature bout, but the match has since taken center stage after Carl Frampton had to withdraw from his scheduled matchup vs. Emmanuel Dominguez after a freak injury.
