(March 5, 2024) — Two action-packed international cards will stream live and exclusively in the U.S. this week on ESPN+.

The action begins Thursday at Casino de Montreal in Montreal, Canada, as two-time middleweight world title challenger Steven Butler takes on Steve Rolls in the 10-round main event.

Butler-Rolls and undercard battles will stream live beginning at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.

Butler (33-4-1, 27 KOs), a 10-year pro, challenged Ryota Murata for the WBA middleweight world title in December 2019. Despite a setback in his return fight against Jose de Jesus Macias in 2021, he rallied with a four-fight win streak, including a second-round TKO over Mark DeLuca. The 28-year-old suffered a stoppage loss in a bid for the WBO strap against Janibek Alimkhanuly last May. He is coming off a ninth-round TKO against Mexican veteran Ivan Alvarez in November. Rolls (22-3, 12 KOs) gave stiff tests to unbeaten talents Edgar Berlanga and Austin Williams after losing his ‘0’ against former division kingpin Gennadiy Golovkin in June 2019.

The fireworks continue on Friday as Panamanian light flyweight contender Azael Villar faces unbeaten Spaniard Jairo Noriega in the 12-round main event from Pharaoh’s Casino in Managua, Nicaragua. 

Villar-Noriega and undercard contests will stream live starting at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.

Villar (20-2-4, 15 KOs) captured his first regional title in October 2021 with a decision over David Martinez. He then tallied two stoppage victories before losing to Japanese standout Ayumu Hanada in January 2023. The 29-year-old fought to a split draw last August against Gerardo Zapata and returns following a 10-round points verdict against Ricardo Astuvilca in December. Noriega (13-0, 3 KOs) risks his undefeated record in his first fight outside of Spain following an eight-round decision win versus Gerson Larios last June.
