Edgar Berlanga vs. Padraig McCrory: Date, start time, how to watch and live stream

Edgar Berlanga and Padraig McCrory are set to go toe-to-toe in a blockbuster fight when the pair meet for a super middleweight encounter this weekend, as the latter makes the trip across the Atlantic to face off against the former US Youth National Champion.

Berlanga has carved an impressive path since making the jump to Matchroom, with wins against Roamer Alexis Angulo and Jason Quigley the latest in a professional career without a major blemish to date. However, in the shape of onetime IBO light heavyweight champion McCrory, he comes across another opponent putting their unbeaten record on the line, with the Irishman a formidable presence in the ring following his 2017 debut.

There may be concerns for the latter, though, having failed to deliver a knockout victory in each of his last three fights - but that will drive him even harder to deliver a statement performance against a home favourite in only his second overseas contest.
