“The King” is back in the ring on Saturday as Mexico’s Óscar Valdez takes on Australia’s Liam Wilson for the vacant WBO interim junior lightweight world title. 

A former world champ at both featherweight and super featherweight, the 33-year-old is now without a belt after losing recent titles fights to Shakur Stevenson and Emanuel Navarrete and will be looking to re-establish himself as a force once more with a win this evening in Arizona. 

Standing in his way is 28-year-old Queensland fighter Wilson, who also suffered a defeat at the hands of Navarrete in a WBO super-featherweight title back in February 2023.

Friday’s bill also includes a co-feature fight between WBC/WBA/Ring Magazine champ Seniesa Estrada and WBO/IBF holder Yokasta Valle with the winner set to become the first-ever female undisputed minimumweight champion.

Here are all the details of tonight’s big fight, including start time, how to watch it and more.
