“Toe To Toe Tuesdays” is Back March 15th – The Premier Boxing Champions returns to Fox Sports 1 with their “Toe to Toe Tuesdays” series this coming March 15th. The broadcast is set to start a 9PM Eastern Standard Time.
A pair of ten round bouts top the card, and the fights highlight the international nature of the PBC’s roster as Super Lightweight prospect Sergey Lipinets takes on Levan Ghvamichava in a fight between a Kazak fighter and a fighter from the Republic of Georgia on the other side of the Caspian Sea. Lipinets is 26 years old, and he has been boxing professionally for just about two years. Prior to that he boasts a kickboxing and MMA background, but to his credit he has faced very experienced boxers. His last fight back in October of 2015 saw him win a 10 round UD over the previously unbeaten Haskell Rhodes (23-0-1), and his first fight as a professional saw him face Franklin Varela, a guy with 35 pro fights and a winning record.
In Ghvamichava, he is getting an experienced fighter who has won five fights in a row. He fought the first half of his career in Europe,and he went 3-1-1 upon his initial arrival to compete in the states before righting the ship with the win streak he is on now.
The co-main event on the schedule sees Mongolia’s 2012 Olympic Silver medalist Tugstsogt Nyambayar takes on veteran Rafael Vazquez of Puerto Rico by way of Brooklyn. Nyambayar is the fighter facing a fast-tracked career here because of high expectations.

Also on the card is Russia’s 2008 Olympic representative in the Middleweight category as Sergiy Derevyanchenko takes on Mike Guy. Derevyanchenko just turned professional in mid-2014, while the 34 year old Guy has only fought once in that same timeframe.
The undercard bouts feature additional undefeated talent, led by 8-0 Featherweight Leduan Barthelemy. The 26 year old is originally from Cuba and is the youngest of three brothers. His older brother is 24-0 two weight class world champion Rances Barthelemy. Leduan faces veteran Pedro Melo of Mexico, who went 3-5 overall in eight fights in 2015 and is 1-0 so far this year.
Another talent to watch may be 23 year old Super Lightweight Kevin Watts of Los Angeles, who is a perfect 10-0 in his professional career. He faces Poland’s rugged Michal Chudecki. Undefeated Texan Mario Barrios takes on veteran Erick Daniel Martinez, a fighter who has gone 0-4 in his fights dating back to September of 2014.
