12:01 a.m.: Prograis hurt Redkach badly
11:53 p.m.: Through three rounds
11:30 p.m.: It's a moral victory for Frank Mir as he lasted all six rounds against Steve Cunningham, who owns a knockdown over current WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. But Cunningham takes the unanimous decision with scores of 60-54, 60-54 and 58-56. Man, that was entertaining thanks to the Golden Boy and his unique commentary. Oh, it's time for a Major Lazer performance? Alrighty, then . . .
11:18 p.m.: Entering the fourth round, it has been all Cunningham as Mir is unable to do much. But none of this is nearly as entertaining as Oscar De La Hoya on commentary. He's yelling and saying the most random things. "Your mother told you not to smother" and "Deflate the balloon, Frank Mir" are among the hits. If there was a highlight package of De La Hoya quotes, it would be worth your money.
11:10 p.m.: Cunningham is beating up Mir after a round but the real story is Oscar De La Hoya on commentary. He's clearly been dipped in Snoop stash and is gone mad on commentary.
11:03 p.m.: It has been one hour and 22 minutes since the last fight. That ends now. Up next, it’s Steve Cunningham vs. former UFC champion Frank Mir. Cunningham will be giving up 70 pounds to the former MMA fighter.
11 p.m.: Following an excellent performance from Doja Cat that included songs such as "Streets," we got a video tribute to the late, great DMX. What other boxing pay-per-view would you get something like this? That's right. None.
10:43 p.m.: Da Crazy Hawaiian just obliterated The Bear Man with a monster slap that drew an impressive "Woooooooo" out of Ric Flair. If you thought we'd be getting another fight next, then you're wrong. Up next is a performance by Doja Cat.
10:38 p.m. : It's time for our next fight. Well, not boxing. It's the SlapStrike exhibition bout between U.S. champion Da Crazy Hawaiian and The Bear Man with Ric Flair calling the match.
10:34 p.m.: Before we get to the next fight, it's the world premiere of the supergroup Mt. Westmore. The collective of Too $hort, E-40, Ice Cube and Snoop Dogg each performed their solo hits before their collaboration together. It's almost been an hour since the last fight.
10:07 p.m. : Saweetie's performance will go down in the Milli Vanilli Hall of Fame of performances. She performed her hits, including "Best Friend" with Doja Cat, but it was obvious that she lip-synched the entire time. We're awaiting the next fight, between Steve Cunningham and former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir.
9:54 p.m.: As we await the next fight, we get a performance by Saweetie. Prior to hitting the stage, we get a segment with Saweetie and Snoop grabbing a bite to eat and the rapper deciding to put hot Cheetos on a slice of pizza to bring out the flavor. That's the kind of night we're having, folks.
9:41 p.m.: As you may have suspected, Fournier won by TKO when Reykon didn't answer the bell for the third round. A left hook put Reykon down in the second round. Why Reykon got up, we'll never know. Fournier lands another left hook that causes Reykon to take a knee after a delayed reaction. Fournier allowed Reykon to get out of the round but his corner rescued the artist so he could go back to making music.
9:25 p.m.: Following The Black Keys performance, we go to the commentary team, and Ray Flores, who is known for his professionalism, has joined the fray with his own foul-mouthed commentary. This is so unique. Undefeated Joe Fournier (8-0, 8 KOs) faces reggaeton artist Reykon (0-0) in the first fight of the night. This fight happened over a girl. Yup. Throw logic out the window and enjoy the night.
9:05 p.m.: We kick off the Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren PPV with Snoop and Jaleel White as White promotes his “Purple Urkle” strain. After that advertisement, Snoop is joined by Pete Davidson and Diplo. Some curse words fly and Davidson says he wouldn't have an issue with Snoop or Diplo having sexual relations with his mother. The Black Keys are the first performance of the evening. This is going to be one hell of a night.
