Tursynbay Kulakhmet-Macaulay McGowan Junior Middleweight Showdown to Headline Afternoon of Boxing LIVE and Exclusively on ESPN+ Wednesday - Stream to begin at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT

Kazakh prodigy Tursynbay Kulakhmet looks to make another statement Wednesday when he faces fellow unbeaten Macaulay McGowan in a 10-round junior middleweight showdown from Production Park Studios in Wakefield, England.


Kulakhmet vs McGowan headlines a special edition of MTK Fight Night. Boxing fans can watch the event live and exclusively on ESPN+ in the US and IFL TV worldwide. The date and start time in the US is set for Wednesday, November 11 at 2 pm ET / 11 am PT, which converts to 7 pm GMT in the UK and November 12 at 6 am AEDT in Australia.

Kulakhmet (1-0, 1 KO), a 2019 World Championships bronze medalist, made his professional debut Aug. 23 and knocked out former amateur standout Sagadat Rakhmankul in four rounds. At 26 years old, he is taking the express lane to title contention, as the McGowan bout will be contested for the vacant WBC International title. McGowan (14-0-1, 3 KOs), from Manchester, England, has won four straight fights since a 2016 draw.
