Live World Championship Boxing at GSR!
World championship boxing returns to "The Biggest Little City in the World" with a powerhouse night of excitement only at Grand Sierra Resort! This electrifying Top Rank event will be televised live on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and the ESPN app as it's broadcast live from the award-winning Grand Theatre.
The Main Event - Beltran Vs. Moses
Raymundo Beltran and Paulus Moses will do battle for the WBO lightweight title.
Beltran, a native of Mexico who resides in Phoenix, AZ., enters this fight having won four of his last fights by knockout. A three-time lightweight world title challenger, Beltran is fighting for more than just a world title; he is fighting to obtain his green card so that he can remain in the U.S. with his family. A world title victory will all but assure him of his permanent status.
Moses, a veteran who has fought professionally in Asia, Europe and Africa, will be making his North America debut. He captured the WBA World lightweight title in 2009, traveling to Yokohama, Japan to defeat defending champion Yusuke Kobori. He has a two-year reign as WBO International lightweight champion and a current 14-month reign as WBO Africa lightweight champion.
