It may not feature Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao, but the "Four Warned" pay-per-view on June 2 promises to be a good one. The main event will feature former Light Heavyweight Champion Antonio "Magic Man" Tarver taking on undefeated Nigerian Lateef "Power" Kayode in a Cruiserweight grudge match.The 43-year-old Tarver bounced back from consecutive losses to Chad Dawson with decisive victories over Nagy Aguilera and Danny Green, so he enters his bout with Kayode with a lot of momentum. Despite his unblemished record, Kayode hasn't been at his best as of late. This has prompted Tarver, who moonlights as a Showtime analyst, to be quite critical of him.Perhaps it was all a ploy for Tarver to get a shot at the 29-year-old power puncher. If that was indeed the plan, then Tarver will certainly get what he wanted. Here is your complete guide for when and where to watch the clash between Tarver and Kayode on June 2.
