Friday night’s ShoBox: The New Generation telecast will also be shown live in the UK and Ireland on the BoxNation boxing channel (3 am UK time).
Emanating from the Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane, Kansas, the event will feature a 10-round super lightweight showdown between undefeated prospects Shoh Ergashev (15-0, 14 KOs) of Uzbekistan and Maryland’s Mykal Fox (19-0, 5 KOs) and a 10-round super bantamweight battle for the WBA-NABA Championship between Fort Worth’s rugged Jesse Angel Hernandez (12-1, 7 KOs) and Britain’s Thomas Patrick Ward (25-0, 4 KOs).
The US-based commentary team will consist of Barry Tompkins calling the action from ringside with Steve Farhood and former world champion Raul Marquez serving as expert analysts.

Event promoter Dmitriy Salita of Salita Promotions says the addition of BoxNation is a welcome bonus for his fighters on the card, Ergashev and Hernandez.
“BoxNation picking up the event will allow Shoh and Jesse to also display their talents to European fight fans and increase their worldwide profiles. They are both in against top-level opponents who will seriously test them. I’m happy BoxNation decided to pick up this terrific event. It’s a great opportunity for all the fighters on the telecast to become bigger stars around the world.”
