Showtime Boxing schedule 2022: Errol Spence Jr. vs. Yordenis Ugas, Gervonta Davis vs. Rolando Romero on tap

Showtime

On Tuesday, Showtime unveiled their boxing schedule for the coming months and it is loaded with big stars and championship contests. Both Charlo twins, Gervonta “Tank” Davis and Errol Spence Jr. will all be in action in huge clashes through the coming spring and summer months.

The schedule kicks into overdrive on April 16 when WBC and IBF welterweight champion Spence takes on WBA champion Yordenis Ugas in a Showtime pay-per-view main event from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Ugas is coming off a win over Manny Pacquiao that sent the legend into retirement and established Ugas as truly one of the elite fighters in a deep welterweight division.

Jermell Charlo and Brian Castano are set to rematch in a four-belt unification at junior middleweight on May 14 after a controversial finish to their July 2021 bout, with the judges scoring the thrilling bout a split draw. Jermell’s twin, Jermall, will also be in action in the coming months, defending his WBC middleweight championship against Maciej Sulecki on June 18.
