A building-record crowd for boxing of 13,838 at the Save Mart Center at Fresno State featured two co-main bouts, Beterbiev vs. Köelling and Jose Ramirez (21-0, 16 KOs) vs. Mike Reed (23-1, 12 KOs).

Two more Top Rank on ESPN fights are scheduled for 2017—December 9 and 13. Both are highly anticipated and the Vasily Lomachenko vs. Guillermo Rigondeaux is regarded as the best fight card remaining on the 2017 boxing calendar.

December 9, 9 p.m. ET Live on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and the ESPN App

Top Rank on ESPN from New York City’s The Theater at Madison Square Garden on December 9 at 9 p.m. main event features Vasily Lomachenko (9-1, 7 KOs) against Guillermo Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs), the first time two-time Olympic gold medalists have fought each other professionally at the highest level. Lomachenko will defend his WBO junior lightweight world title against the reigning (WBA) super bantamweight champion Rigondeaux.

December 13, 6:30 a.m. ET Live on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and the ESPN App

Boxing’s Cinderella Man and Brisbane, Australia’s favorite son, Jeff “The Hornet” Horn, returns to the ring in the first defense of the world title he won off the legendary Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao. Horn (17-0-1, 11 KOs) will be risking his newly-minted World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight crown against Top-10 contender Gary “Hellraiser” Corcoran (17-1, 7 KOs), of London.
