We’re roughly two weeks out from Showtime’s big quadruple-header card on June 2. The co-main eventers are featured here in two bouts that will either anoint new division stars or breathe continued life into old veterans. Out of the four, the most pressure is likely on Lateef Kayode. He’s been spotlighted regularly on Showtime but hasn’t had a good performance in recent fights. Losing or looking bad against a 43-year-old Antonio Tarver would not bode well for his future marketability.

The biggest underdog here in Winky Wright, who hasn’t fought since being dominated and losing all 12 rounds to Paul Williams back in 2009. Facing a young, undefeated fighter in his first fight back at 40 years old is a tough task and might repeat the mistake Wright made in facing Williams following a two-year layoff.

The card airs on June 2 at 9 p.m. ET.
