STAMFORD, Conn. – March 3, 2021 – NBC Sports’ presentation of Ring City USA boxing returns tomorrow night, Thursday, March 4 with main and co-main event bouts live at 9 p.m. ET on NBCSN, as Ring City USA begins a three-event residency in Puerto Rico.
Tomorrow’s event from Felix Pintor Gym in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, features a three-fight main card highlighted by blue-chip rising star Serhii Bohachuk (18-0, 18 KO) facing former world title challenger Brandon Adams (22-3, 14 KO). Adams earned a second-round TKO over Sonny Duversonne on the Dec. 3 card from Wild Card Boxing Club in Los Angeles, and will be Ring City USA’s first return fighter when he takes on Bohachuk tomorrow night.
In the co-main events, undefeated prospect Danielito Zorrilla (14-0, 11 KOs) of Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico, will meet Ruslan Madiyev (13-1, 5 KO) in a 10-round super lightweight fight, and Puerto Rico’s Bryan Chevalier (14-1-1, 11 KO) takes on Carlos Zambrano (26-1, 11 KO) in an eight-round featherweight contest.
Ring City USA made its debut on Nov. 19 with inaugural matches on NBCSN, which featured O’Shaquie Foster’s KO victory against Miguel Roman. In October, NBC Sports Group and Ring City USA announced a partnership to televise a series of boxing matches on NBCSN through 2021.
The partnership consists of a series of two-hour match slates on Thursday evenings at 9 p.m. ET on NBCSN with 14 matches to be scheduled throughout 2021, beginning tomorrow night.
NBC Sports has brought boxing to millions of viewers across the country beginning with the first-ever live televised fight in 1939, when Lou Nova defeated Max Baer at Yankee Stadium. Over the decades to follow, NBC Sports’ coverage of the sport showcased stars including Joe Louis, “Sugar” Ray Robinson, Rocky Marciano, Muhammad Ali, “Sugar” Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, and Larry Holmes.
