Friday, October 12

Wealth TV / Indigo (Canada), 7:00 pm EDT, Adonis Stevenson vs Don George, David Lemieux vs Alvaro Gaona. Just to note, you can sign up for an account on WealthTV.com and stream this weekend's fights for free -- they have a 30-day trial offer there so you can check it out if you don't have a Roku or the channel isn't on your cable/satellite or whatever. It's not on mine, so I'll be giving a shot this weekend, too. This is a good, solid main event, originally scheduled for August on Friday Night Fights in Oklahoma, but a better fit here. It was postponed due to an injury to Stevenson. It's also an IBF eliminator, with the winner in line to face Carl Froch as it stands now, but Froch has his November 17 fight with Yusaf Mack first, and then a spring 2013 rematch with Lucian Bute, so the earliest the winner is likely to get an IBF crack would be next fall, probably. Lemieux is trying to get his career sorted, basically. Bad Left Hook will have live coverage.

Showtime, 10:00 pm EDT, Jose Pedraza vs Tevin Farmer, Jonathan Cepeda vs Lamar Russ, Jermain Taylor vs Raul Munoz (highlights). This is a weak ShoBox, but Pedraza is a prospect you need to know, and Cepeda-Russ looks well-matched on paper. Taylor's continuing comeback gets less relevant by the fight, basically. Bad Left Hook will have live coverage.

Saturday, October 13

Wealth TV / BoxNation (UK), 2:30 pm EDT, David Price vs Audley Harrison, Kevin Satchell vs Chris Edwards, Jon Lewis Dickinson vs Shane McPhilbin. This should be a blowout for Price -- it really, really should be. But Audley can still hit on the occasions he lets his hands go, and there have been chin questions about Price. The main event is going to start at 4:30 pm EDT, moved up a bit, Frank Maloney says, to attract more viewers and meet newspaper deadlines. The Wealth TV broadcast goes live at 3. Bad Left Hook will have live coverage.

Channel 5 (UK), 5:00 pm EDT, James DeGale vs Hadillah Mohoumadi, Chris Eubank Jr vs TBA. DeGale is in what should be a breeze of a fight, as he's far better than this level of opponent, but it's important as it's his Channel 5 debut and his first fight with Hennessy Sports. Eubank Jr is more than just a famous name, and worth seeing. There's a good chance the Price-Harrison fight will be over by the time this one starts, but either way we'll have a live discussion thread, and should be able to cover it well enough. Bad Left Hook will have live coverage.

TyC Sports (Argentina), 8:00 pm EDT, Mauricio Munoz vs Luis Franco. This is a pretty good fight, too -- Munoz had a better than expected showing against Toshiaki Nishioka in April 2011, and Franco is a decent Cuban prospect who, at 30, is trying to make a run. This is an IBF eliminator at 126.

Donaire_vs_nishioka_banner_medium

HBO, 10:00 pm EDT, Nonito Donaire vs Toshiaki Nishioka, Brandon Rios vs Mike Alvarado. It's almost here. This might be the best show, P4P, that HBO puts on all year. The main event is a matchup between good, exciting, high-level fighters at 122 pounds, while the co-feature should be all action, a bloody war in the making. Bad Left Hook will have live coverage.

Juarez_vs_knight_banner_medium

Televisa (Mexico), 10:00 pm EDT, Mariana Juarez vs Ava Knight, Miguel Roman vs Dante Jardon II. I know little about the main event, but the Roman-Jardon rematch is a fight with a couple of sluggers. Roman won a 10-round split decision in their first meeting on July 28.

Telefutura, 11:30 pm EDT, Jeffrey Fontanez vs John Nater, Braulio Santos vs John Alberto Molina.
