Two undefeated super lightweights will battle on Saturday at San Antonio’s Freeman Coliseum when three-division world champion Mikey Garcia (37-0, 30 KOs) tries to win his fourth title when he challenges IBF titleholder Sergey Lipinets (13-0, 10 KOs).

Another undefeated product Rances Barthelemy (26-0, 13 KOs) takes on the dangerous Kiryl Relikh (21-2, 19 KOs) in the co-main event. The bout will be broadcast by Showtime and streamed live for subscribers.
Here is the necessary viewing information:
- Date: Saturday, March 10
- Time: 10:15 pm ET
- TV: Showtime
- Live Stream: Showtime Anytime
- Ticket Prices: $20 - $250 (All but two sections close to the ring have tickets available)
This card won't have nearly as much combat sports competition as last week's Deontay Wilder-Luis Ortiz bout. However, there will be a title bout on ESPN between Oscar Valdez and Scott Quigg. The ESPN broadcast begins at 10:30 pm ET thanks to the ACC men's college basketball tournament final.
Still, Garcia's bout figures to be the prime late-night sports draw. Last weekend, Wilder-Ortiz's broadcast averaged more than 1 million viewers. It's unlikely Garcia-Lipinets does as well, but a 700-800K average might be considered a success.
