Reminder: ESPN's "Gift to Boxing Fans" Goes at 9 p.m. ET


Tonight Manny Pacquiao appears on free TV for the first time since 2005. Some are calling it ESPN's gift to boxing fans.

The telecast begins at 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT. That's 11 am Sunday in Brisbane, Australia, if my math is correct.

There will be four fights in all on the telecast which is expected to last three hours.

Up first, Shane Mosley Jr. will oppose Canberra's David Touissant in a match slated for 8 rounds.

That will be followed by a 6-rounder between Irish Olympian Michael Conlan (2-0) and Brisbane's Jarrett Owen (5-4-3).

In the semi-main, Jerwin Ancajas of the Philippines defends his IBF 115-pound title against Japan's Teiru Kinoshita.

Then comes the big wind-up, Manny Pacquiao vs. hometown hero Jeff Horn.

Let's hope it's an entertaining fight.
So we have a Horn getting tuned up in the wind up.


This will make Pacquiao-Algieri seem competitive.
