Glen Tapia vs. Jason Quigley
What: Irish prospect Jason Quigley (12-0, 10 KOs) looks to take a major jump in the middleweight division by challenging the experienced Tapia (23-3, 15 KOs).
When: Wednesday, March 22nd, 10 p.m. ET
Where: Fantasy Springs Casino, Indio, California, USA
How To Watch: ESPN 2
Why To Watch: Conor McGregor once proclaimed, "“We're [the Irish] not just here to take part….we're here to take over.”
Quigley is just the latest combat sports prospect in line. His knockout power is impressive, but he'll be facing his toughest challenge to date in Glen Tapia. Tapia knows why he's such an appealing opponent for Quigley but isn't ready to be a stepping stone for his success.
"I've been in Quigley's position before, so I know exactly what he's feeling," Tapia said. "He's trying to prove himself and he's looking at me like his step up. At the end of the day, because of my last performances, I feel like I really don't have the privilege to speak on what I'm going to do, but just know that I'll be more than ready to show Quigley and the boxing fans that I am more than just a step up."
This should make for a very entertaining mid-week fight.

Anthony Crolla vs Jorge Linares
What: Jorge Linares (41-3, 27 KOs) attempts to once again edge out the entertaining Anthony Crolla (31-5-3, 13 KOs) in a rematch of their September 2016 fight.
When: Saturday, March 25th, 6 p.m. ET
Where: Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.
How To Watch: Showtime
Why To Watch: Linares and Crolla put on one of the closest fights of 2016, in their September 26th match up, but the rivalry is far from over. Crolla looks to take what he learned in the first fight and use it to capture Linares' WBA World lightweight title.
Crolla's promoter Eddie Hearn spoke on why the rematch was made.
“Crolla is great at rematches,” said Hearn to IFL TV. “That Arena [Manchester] can create some special things. Can Linares find the form that he found in the last fight? I don’t believe that’s possible. Can Crolla improve? Yes, I believe that’s possible. Can the crowd take him [Crolla] over the finish line? There will be 13,000-14,000 in there, cheering him on,”
