We've got a packed line-up this weekend, featuring an HBO double-header, along with fights from France, England, Mexico and South Africa.

Topping the bill is the HBO card, with James Kirkland taking on Carlos Molina, and Erik Morales going up against Danny Garcia. We've got two selections devoted to both fights.

Also on the bill is the 140lb clash between Zab Judah and Vernon Paris, plus a couple of British title fights, with Gary Buckland defending his junior-lightweight crown against Paul Truscott, and Shane McPhilbin putting his recently won cruiserweight strap on the line against Enzo Maccarinelli.

In Mexico, Hernan "Tyson" Marquez takes on Rodel Mayol in a flyweight scrap, while South African junior-featherweights Takalani Ndlovu and Jeffrey Mathebula square off in Johannesburg.

Rounding out the card is a European title clash between lightweights Gavin Rees and Anthony Mezaache.
