This weekend features Jake Paul vs. Nate Diaz in a Saturday evening spotlight fight, but Friday brings some real boxing action. The day opens with an ESPN+ card topped by Padraig McCrory vs. Steed Woodall in a super middleweight out. McCrory is on the fringe of boxing rankings in the division and will look to build his case for an eventual mandatory title bout.
