In tonight’s boxing action lets take a look at the Ryan Garcia vs Carlos Morales time, venue, live stream and other particulars in the only professional action of note in this weekend’s boxing fights.
Golden Boy Promotions’ standout prospect returns to the ring tonight with Ryan Garcia being the man at the front for Oscar De La Hoya and co. for trialing the new partnership the company struck with Facebook to stream fights for free to the public.
Tonight’s fight takes place at Fantasy Springs Casino, Indio, California.
Unlike past live streams, this new Facebook Watch feature goes out to everyone world-wide, not just for people in the US or those in the UK.
It also features a main event card on Facebook for the first time by one of the major promoters.
Not an undercard stream like the usual Facebook live bouts have been in the past.
The stream tonight on Facebook will kick off at 5pm West coast time in the US, which is 8pm in the East.
For those staying up in the UK that works out as Sunday morning for the streaming of the boxing tonight at 1am approx start time.
It is totally free and will be exclusively live on Facebook.
It should be an interesting experiment to watch.
The second fight planned by Golden Boy for this format is Jorge Linares’ comeback fight after the Lomachenko loss for later in the year, so a lot will hinge on tonight’s stream going well.
