Ricky Hatton returns against Vyacheslav Senchenko, Andre Berto meets Robert Guerrero, and Danny Green takes on Shane Cameron in the highlights of this week's boxing TV schedule.
Wednesday, November 21
Main Event PPV (Australia), 3:00 am EST, Danny Green vs Shane Cameron, Will Tomlinson vs Irving Berry. This is a pretty big. Green isn't really a cruiserweight, he's a light heavyweight. And Cameron isn't really a cruiserweight, he's a heavyweight. This has an 89kg (about 196 pounds) catchweight. Cameron has never weighed in that low in his career. We probably won't have live coverage of this one, but we'll try.
Friday, November 23
TyC Sports (Argentina), 8:00 pm EST, Gustavo David Bermudez vs Julian Alejandro Salas.
Direct TV (Argentina), 9:00 pm EST, Ezequiel Fernandez vs Diego Alberto Chaves.
Saturday, November 24
SHO / Primetime PPV (UK), 2:00 pm EST (UK) / 5:00 pm EST (US), Ricky Hatton vs Vyacheslav Senchenko, Scott Quigg vs Rendall Munroe (rematch), Martin Murray vs Jorge Navarro, Gary Buckland vs Stephen Foster, Sergey Rabchenko vs Cedric Vitu. We'll be here from the start with the full card being covered live, as only the main event is going to air on Showtime in the States, and it's a good overall card with some solid fights and notable names in action. We'll have more on Hatton-Senchenko and the undercard in the coming days. Bad Left Hook will have live coverage.
TyC Sports (Argentina), 8:00 pm EST, Debora Anahi Dionicius vs Michelle Preston.
HBO / BoxNation (UK), 10:00 pm EST, Andre Berto vs Robert Guerrero, Keith Thurman vs Carlos Quintana. Though we lost the Abril-Bogere fight, this is still a very nice card. The main event has big implications in the welterweight division, with Berto returning after 14 months out of the ring to face Guerrero, who is desperately trying to make enough waves to land something like a Mayweather fight. Thurman-Quintana is actually a very good matchup. I guess you can argue it's not HBO-worthy, but I kind of think the idea of "HBO-worthy" is long dead, so I guess it doesn't offend me much. Don't sleep on Quintana. Maybe Thurman is better than Deandre Latimore, but maybe he's not. Bad Left Hook will have live coverage.
Televisa (Mexico), 10:00 pm EST, Fernando Montiel vs Giovanni Caro, Carlos Cuadras vs Fernando Lumacad. Montiel just keeps plugging along, waiting for another big fight and staying busy. He's turned into another version of Humberto Soto, more or less. He plays the waiting game and doesn't get rusty. Cuadras-Lumacad is an interesting enough matchup at super flyweight.
