Naoya Inoue-Michael Dasmarinas, Jermall Charlo-Juan Montiel live results and analysis

After a successful debut under the Top Rank banner in October, a seventh-round TKO victory over Jason Moloney to defend his IBF and WBA bantamweight world titles, Naoya Inoue returns to Las Vegas to face Michael Dasmarinas on Saturday at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas (ESPN/ESPN+, 10 p.m. ET, prelims 8 p.m. ET on ESPN+).

Japanese boxer Inoue (20-0, 17 KOs), 28, is one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world, ranked No. 3 by ESPN. He defeated future Hall of Famer Nonito Donaire to win the Muhammad Ali trophy in the World Boxing Super Series bantamweight final in 2019.

Dasmarinas (30-2-1, 20 KOs), a 29-year-old southpaw from the Philippines, doesn’t have many big names on his record, but he is 12-0-1 since losing a split decision against Lwandile Sityatha in December 2014.

In the co-main event, Mikaela Mayer (14-0, 5 KOs), 30, of Woodland Hills, California, makes the first defense of her WBO women’s junior lightweight title against Erica Farias (26-4, 10 KOs), 36, of Buenos Aires, Argentina, in a 10-round fight. Also in the card, 26-year-old Isaac Dogboe (21-2, 15 KOs), of Accra, Ghana, faces Adam Lopez (15-2, 6 KOs), 25, of Glendale, California, in a 10-round featherweight bout.

At the Toyota Center in Houston, Jermall Charlo puts his WBC middleweight world title on the line against Juan Macias Montiel in the main event of a PBC card (Showtime, 9 p.m. ET).

Charlo (31-0, 22 KOs), 31, of Houston, is considered one of the best middleweights in boxing but is still waiting to face the big names at 160 pounds. Charlo defeated Sergiy Derevyanchenko by unanimous decision in September, his fourth successful title defense since winning the belt with a second-round KO of Hugo Centeno Jr. in April 2018.

On the undercard, former junior featherweight world titlist Angelo Leo (20-1, 9 KOs), 27, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, faces 27-year-old Aaron Alameda (25-1, 13 KOs), of Mexico, in a 10-round battle.

At Estadio Jalisco in Guadalajara, Mexico, former UFC champion and legend Anderson Silva, 1-1, 1 KO in boxing, 46, of Sao Paulo, gets back in the ring for the first time in 16 years to face former middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (52-5-1, 34 KOs), 35, of Culiacan, Mexico, in a 10-round cruiserweight bout.

Also on the card, Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. faces Hector Camacho Jr. in a six-round middleweight exhibition.
