ROBERT GUERRERO live on FOX and FOX Deportes Saturday, July 15 (8:00 PM ET), from NYCB LIVE’s Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Long Island, N.Y.

The fifth installment of PBC on FOX and FOX Deportes sees Staten Island’s unbeaten contender “Sir” Marcus Browne (19-0, 14 KOs) battling undefeated Long Island native Seanie Monaghan (28-0, 17 KOs) in a light heavyweight showdown. Also televised in prime time, Artur Szpilka (20-2, 15 KOs) meets Adam Kownacki (15-0, 12 KOs) in an all-Polish heavyweight showdown that promises fireworks.
“I’m very excited for the PBC fights on Fox Saturday night,” says Custer. “If styles make fights, we should have three fan-friendly, explosive bouts you don’t want to miss. And what a main event with two former world champions, Omar Figueroa and Robert Guerrero, one trying to re-establish his dominance and the other looking to regain his past glory in the best division in boxing.”
