The sport of boxing has returned with live action, and for welterweight prospect Giovanni Santillan, Tuesday night marks by far the biggest test of his young career.
The 28-year old Santillan (25-0, 15 KO’s), who is co-promoted by Thompson Boxing and Top Rank, will face former world champion Antonio DeMarco (33-8-1, 24 KOs), on ESPN in a co-feature attraction. The main event will see bantamweight contender Joshua Greer Jr. (22-1-1, 12 KOs) face Mike Plania (23-1, 12 KOs), with the broadcast starting at 7 p.m. ET / 4 p.m. PT.
