Two exciting American stars look to progress their careers in Las Vegas. 

One of those is Richardson Hitchins who faces Argentina's Gustavo Daniel Lemos in an eliminator for the IBF super lightweight title which is currently held by Subriel Matias.

Super middleweight Diego Pacheco is also set to feature on the card when he takes on Shawn McCalman with Pacheco looking to extend his nine fight knockout streak.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Hitchins vs. Lemos.

When is Hitchins vs. Lemos?


  • Date: Saturday, April 6    

  • Start time: 7 p.m. ET / 12 a.m. UK (Sunday)

The event is set to begin at 7 p.m. ET / 12 a.m. UK, the main event ringwalk times have not been confirmed at the time of writing. 

What has been said?

“I really haven’t watched too much of him,” admitted Hitchins to during a recent interview. “I don’t know that much of him but I just know he can’t f--- with me.”

In roughly two months, Hitchins will find out if his decision to avoid studying Lemos will be sagacious. For whatever reason, the 27-year-old has been a bit on the inactive side. In total, he’s fought just once annually over the past two years but he did make the most of his meager schedule, scoring back-to-back knockouts over Lee Selby and Javier Jose Clavero.

In a day and age where fighters play around with their food, Lemos isn’t one of them. Oftentimes, when he hurts his man, the end arrives soon after. Hitchins isn’t known as a knockout puncher. He also isn’t the type to crush his opponents. Instead, he enjoys making them miss while simultaneously making them pay.

There’s a danger that comes with swapping fists with an opponent like Lemos. All in all, Hitchins wishes him well. He also hopes that his training camp goes picture-perfect. Come April 6th, he simply doesn't want to hear any excuses.

“April 6th, I’m not coming to f--- around.”
