It's another action-packed Saturday for boxing — this weekend equipped with two of the sport's biggest names.

After the Saturday slate kicks off with Julio Cesar Martinez putting his WBC flyweight title on the line against Joel Cordova at the Domo Alcade, Gigantes de Jalisco Arena in Guadalajara, Mexico, and live on DAZN, Gervonta Davis and Vasiliy Lomachenko will take over with their respective bouts. 

"Tank" jumps up two weight classes to test his power and skills against WBA (Regular) junior welterweight champion Mario Barrios at State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, and live on pay-per-view. The card's co-main event will pit Erickson Lubin vs. Jesion Rosario in a WBC junior middleweight world title eliminator.

From there, Lomachenko will round out the day by clashing with Japanese fighter Masayoshi Nakatani at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The day's docket should resolve lingering questions such as: Will Martinez continue his boxing brilliance? Or is "Tank" biting off more than he could chew with this aggressive move up against the bigger Barrios? And finally, will Loma suffer a letdown in the start to his quest to regain the unified lightweight world titles he once had in his possession?

Here, DAZN News gives you a full rundown on the fight cards' starting times, how to watch all three of these events, every headliner's record and bio and every fight card on this bustling day. Ring the bell!
