Arslanbek Makhmudov vs Ortiz: What have the fighters said?
Arslanbek Makhmudov: “God-willing we get this victory on September 4.
“Of course if [Deontay] Wilder comes out of retirement I’d love to fight him, we’ve gone through the same work with Al Haymon and that would be the fight to make.

Sky Sports (UK), 2:00 pm ET, Liam Smith vs Hassan Mwakinyo. This may wind up on FITE+ in the U.S., but maybe not. The main event is OK at best on paper, Mwakinyo has won a bunch in a row but the competition has been middling, and Smith has always, always done the business against this level opponent. Tasha Jonas and Patricia Berghult will unify 154 lb world titles, Dan Azeez will defend his British 175 lb title against Shakan Pitters, and more.
FITE PPV, 7:00 pm ET, Albert Bell vs Nicolas Polanco. A $17.99 PPV, is there if you want to see what Bell is up to. He’s spent a few years sort of lingering as a fringe contender at 130/135 and is no longer with Top Rank.
DAZN, 8:00 pm ET, Juan Francisco Estrada vs Argi Cortes. Mediocre return for Estrada meant to set up a trilogy fight with Chocolatito Gonzalez. But if he completely overlooks this, you never know, things can go awry in this great sport. Erika Cruz faces Jelena Mrdjenovich in a featherweight title rematch, plus Hector Flores vs Sivenathi Nontshinga for the vacant IBF flyweight title and Eduardo “Rocky” Hernandez vs Jorge Mata. Bad Left Hook will have live coverage.
Among the bouts, unbeaten Joey Spencer takes on Mexican contender Kevin Salgado in the ten-rounder at super welterweight. As well, undefeated Ra’eese Aleem meets Mike Plania in the ten-rounder at super bantamweight.

Joey Spencer vs Kevin Salgado live on FOX and FOX Deportes
The 22-year-old Joey Spencer (15-0, 10 KOs) turned pro in February 2017 and immediately caught the eye of fans and pundits with his combination of speed, power and athleticism.
“I can’t wait to get back in the ring on September 4,” said Spencer. “I’m training extremely hard and I’m in amazing shape. This is a great opportunity for me to shine on a big stage and really show what I’m capable of. I’m looking forward to bringing the fans lots of excitement!”
A native of Mexico City, Kevin Salgado (14-0-1, 9 KOs) is the younger brother of former super featherweight champion Juan Carlos Salgado and now fights out of San Antonio, Texas. The 24-year-old turned pro in late 2016 and delivered knockouts in six of his first nine outings.
“The time is now to take that next step in my career toward a world title shot and I know that a win in this fight will put me on the right path,” said Aleem. “I’ve been waiting for the chance to show everyone why I’m the best super bantamweight in the world. I’m never in a boring fight and you can expect fireworks once again on September 4. I’m going to let my hands send a message to the rest of the division.”
The 25-year-old Mike Plania (26-1, 13 KOs) dropped Joshua Greer twice in their June 2020 clash on his way to a career-best decision victory, which he followed up in April 2021 by defeating Emmanuel Mogawa, before stopping Ricardo Nunez in November. A native of General Santos City in the Philippines, Plania has put together an 11-fight winning streak since a 2018 decision loss against former champion Juan Carlos Payano. Plania has fought professionally since 2014, with five of his last six outings taking place stateside.
