WBA lightweight world titleholder Vasiliy Lomachenko faces WBO world titlist Jose Pedraza in a fight that will air live on ESPN in the United States at 9 p.m. ET Saturday night from the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Pedraza (25-1, 12 KOs), of Caguas, Puerto Rico, is making the first defense of the world belt he won in August with a unanimous decision victory over Raymundo Beltran.
