This weekend's action features a couple of bouts between top ten fighters. A clash of British lightweights tops the bill, with Kevin Mitchell (BLH #5), heading to Scotland to battle it out against Ricky Burns (#3). The other top ten bout, has Rodel Mayol (#10) traveling to Mexico to face off against Juan Carlos Sanchez (#7) in a match-up of flyweights.

Also on the game-sheet is a rematch of a tight cruiserweight bout from 2011, with Krzysztof Wlodarczyk (#5) taking on Francisco Palacios in Poland, and rounding out this weekend's match-ups are a couple of Friday fights, with Gabriel Rosado (#10) facing Charles Whitaker, and Jhonatan Romero going up against Efrain Esquivas.
