Three World Title Fights Set For May 21 On Showtime Boxing

Showtime Boxing on May 21 will feature three world title fights in the same division. Five of the top 154-pounders will compete in this stacked tripleheader.

In the main event, Cuban sensation Erislandy Lara will defend his WBA Super Welterweight World Championship against U.S. Olympian and top contender Vanes Martirosyan in a rematch of their 2012 bout that ended in a technical draw.

Brothers Jermall and Jermell Charlo will look to make history in co-featured bouts as the first twins to hold world titles in the same division. Unbeaten IBF Super Welterweight World Champion Jermall faces his toughest test when he makes the second defense of his belt against former world champion Austin Trout. Jermell will take on exciting contender John Jackson in a bout for the vacant WBC Super Welterweight World Championship.

This event will be promoted by Mayweather Promotions and TGB Promotions. The TV card will kick off at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT.
