Next up, two MMA stars will rematch inside the boxing ring. Jake Paul’s sparring partner Anthony Taylor will take on Chris Avila, the teammate of fan favorite siblings Nick and Nate Diaz. Taylor beat Avila via majority decision at Bellator 238. This will be another eight-rounder at super middleweight.
Last but not least, undefeated Liam Paro and WBO-NABO light welterweight champ Yomar Alamo will face off in a ten-round affair.
