OSCAR DE LA HOYA and Golden Boy Promotions recently hosted the final press conference for this Saturday’s potentially explosive world championship triple header, live on SHOWTIME from the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

IBF welterweight champion “ShowTime” Shawn Porter, of Cleveland, Ohio, will defend against fellow unbeaten Kell Brook, of Sheffield, WBC super-middleweight king Sakio “The Scorpion” Bika, of Sydney, will risk his 168-pound belt in a grudge rematch against unbeaten Anthony “The Dog” Dirrell, of Flint, Michigan, and undefeated Omar “Panterita” Figueroa Jnr, of Weslaco, Texas, will defend his WBC lightweight crown against mandatory challenger Daniel “Tremendo” Estrada, of Mexico City.

The three world title fights will be preceded by two bouts on SHOWTIME EXTREME: undefeated heavyweight and WBC Continental Americas Champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, will take on Jason Gavern, of Orlando, in a 10-round match, and former two-division world champion Jorge “Niño De Oro” Linares will be opposed by Ira Terry, of Memphis, in an eight-round lightweight contest.
