Pacquiao vs Bradley 24/7, Cunningham vs Mansour, Frampton vs Cazares, more: Boxing TV schedule for April 3-5

Scott Heavey

It's a busy week for fights, with a whole mess of fights on the slate from the United States, United Kingdom, Mexico, Germany, and more.

Thursday, April 3

FOX Sports 2 (AUS), 4:00 am EDT, Lenny Zappa vs Shuhei Tsuchiya.

Upcoming-quotnight-of-heavy-2014-03-06_medium

FOX Sports 1 / FOX Deportes, 10:00 pm EDT, Luis Ortiz vs Monte Barrett, Gerald Washington vs Skipp Scott, Dominic Breazale vs Nagy Aguilera. It's a Golden Boy triple-header of heavyweights, designed to showcase Ortiz, Washington, and Breazeale, but hey, crazy things happen at heavyweight, in theory, where, in theory, the one punch can cause the shock. In theory. Washington may be the most vulnerable of the three here, but I know nothing about Skipp Scott, so no idea if he's dangerous or not. BLH will have live coverage.

Friday, April 4

Channel 7 (THA), 3:00 am EDT, Chatpetch Sithmorseng vs Dicky Amitran.

Carlframpton_v_hugocazaes_medium

BoxNation (UK), 2:00 pm EDT, Carl Frampton vs Hugo Cazares, Stephen Ormond vs Karim El Ouazghari, Jamie Conlan vs Benjamin Smoes, Marco McCullough vs Andre Isaeu. This is a WBC title eliminator, with the winner of Frampton-Cazares set up to face Leo Santa Cruaz sometime later this year. Frampton and Santa Cruz have both expressed interest in that fight. BLH will have live coverage.

RaiSport 1 (ITA), 5:00 pm EDT, Gianluca Frezza vs Giacomo Mazzoni, Anita Torti vs Monica Gentili.

Cunningham-mansour_0ee2b_medium

NBC Sports Network, 10:00 pm EDT, Steve Cunningham vs Amir Mansour, Curtis Stevens vs Tureano Johnson. Cunningham-Mansour is make-or-break for both guys at heavyweight. Cunningham needs the win, as he's 37 and running out of time to make a dent in the division. For Mansour, it's a carer-best opportunity. At 41, he's physically fresh, but still, 41 is 41. Stevens may be in tougher than some expect against Johnson, a talented boxer. BLH will have live coverage.

Saturday, April 5

1780803_10152060061294370_1723228374_n_medium

BoxNation (UK) / ARD (DEU), 3:00 pm EDT, Juergen Braehmer vs Enzo Maccarinelli, Jack Culcay vs Sarim Larbi, Tyron Zeuge vs Gheorghe Sabau. Braehmer will be defending the WBA "regular" light heavyweight title against Maccarinelli, which could be exciting enough, given that Maccarinelli has one of the worst chins for a high level fighter. He's got the skills to hang with Braehmer, but it may be a case of how long it takes for Braehmer to catch him. The undercard is standard Sauerland stuff. BLH will have live coverage.

Screen_shot_2014-03-27_at_1

Sky Sports 2 (UK), 5:00 pm EDT, John Ryder vs Jez Wilson, Prizefighter Welterweights IV. Ryder is looking to win his second straight since a loss to Billy Joe Saunders in September. Wilson has won five straight. The welterweight field for Prizefighter features Dean Byrne, Jason Cook, Erick Ochieng, Paddy Gallagher, Johnny Coyle, Johnny Garton, Sam Eggington, and Mark Douglas. BLH will have live coverage.

Televisa (MEX), 11:00 pm EDT, Marco Antonio Rubio vs Domenico Spada, Juan Jose Montes vs Edgar Monarrez, Ibeth Zamora Silva vs TBA. This is for the interim WBC title, because the WBC is in bizarre love with Marco Antonio Rubio, and because Spada, um...hasn't beaten anyone with a winning record in two years.

413800_pac_bradley_2_640x360_medium

HBO, 11:30 pm EDT, 24/7: Pacquiao vs Bradley II.

Azteca 7 (MEX), 11:30 pm EDT, Giovani Segura vs Felipe Salguero, Alejandro Gonzalez Jr vs Juan Alberto Rosas, Misael Castillo vs Aaron Herrera.
