WELCOME TO THE LIVE BLOG
Thank you for joining me tonight for a special live blog at the Bubble at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas for the Jose Pedraza vs. Mikkel LesPierre fight. As always I’ll do my best to be your eyes and ears for this 10 round welterweight fight.
The undercard is already underway live on ESPN. While I won’t be providing my unofficial scorecard for the undercard bouts, I will provide updates and round by round scoring for the main event.
Follow me on Twitter @peterkahn. I’ll be here all night happy to read your comments and answer any questions. I’d love to know who you’re picking to win. Pedraza or LesPierre?
The co-feature is also a showcase fight for Albert Bell as he takes on the durable Mark Bernaldez in a 10 round super featherweight bout.
Another compelling fight on this card is Robeisy Ramirez looking to avenge his pro debut loss to Adan Gonzales.
You can read my prediction that I published earlier today in addition to my preview.
