Abril vs Bogere, Dib vs Gradovich, van Heerden vs Hatton, more: Boxing TV schedule for Feb. 28-Mar. 2

Alex Livesey

Two world titles are on the line this weekend, Matthew Hatton takes a trip to South Africa, and Gary Russell Jr returns.

Thursday, February 28

Fox Sports (Australia), 3:30 am EST, Mark Flanagan vs Daniel MacKinnon.

Friday, March 1

ESPN2, 9:00 pm EST, Billy Dib vs Evgeny Gradovich, Willie Nelson vs Michael Medina. This is back-to-back world title fight weekends for Friday Night Fights, though Dib-Gradovich is hardly some major fight. Dib is a wax paper titlist to begin with, and Gradovich has yet to face anyone near contender status. The co-feature is interesting; big Willie Nelson has improved since his first career loss, and Medina usually gives a spirited effort. BLH will have live coverage.

Saturday, March 2

BoxNation (UK), 2:30 pm EST, Chris van Heerden vs Matthew Hatton. Hatton and van Heerden nearly came to blows at their press conference. van Heerden will have home field advantage in South Africa for this one, and it's a fight he should win if he's going to be an actual contender at 147. Jury's still out on that. BLH will have live coverage.

SHO / BoxNation (UK), 10:00 pm EST, Richar Abril vs Sharif Bogere, Gary Russell Jr vs Vyacheslav Gusev. The vacant WBA lightweight title is on the line in the main event, while the co-feature showcases Gary Russell Jr again in a very mild step up in competition. BLH will have live coverage.

Televisa (Mexico), 10:00 pm EST, Carlos Cuadras vs Victor Zaleta.
