TV and Internet Fight Schedule - Weekend of June 5

Omar_nino_240x230_20061201_mediumEvidently, we're in the dog days of summer now, and possibly for the first time all year, we get a weekend without a major fight.  There is a Friday Night Fights, but with Carlos Quintana pulling out of the matchup, even that is headlined by a faded contender whose claim to fame is getting his ass kicked by Antonio Margarito. 

Friday, June 5

ESPN2, 8:30 p.m. Eastern, Chris Perez vs. Carlos Molina; Joey Hernandez vs. the almighty TBA; Sadam Ali vs. TBA

Saturday, June 6

ZDF (Germany), 4:00 p.m. Eastern, Jurgen Brahmer vs. Antonio Brancalion, Taras Bidenko vs. Denis Boytsov.  Bidenko vs. Boytsov is a good heavyweight prospect fight with the potential for some action, and the winner should join the top 10 in a weak heavyweight division.

Radio Canada TV, Antonin Decarie vs. Victor Hugo Castro, Sebastien Demers vs. Juventino Barrera (evidently, the Internet is the one place in canada where things don't need to be bilingual)

Televisa, 10:00 p.m. Eastern, Omar Nino (pictured) vs. Juanito Rubillar, Jorge Paez Jr. vs. Jose Ramirez

Elsewhere this weekend, Pawel Wolak takes on Vinroy Barrett in a Broadway Boxing on Friday.  That means the show will be syndicated, and you might be able to catch it locally.  For those in New York, usually MSG plays a taped version of Broadway Boxing the next day.  On the same card, Mike Ruiz takes on Chris Gray, and promising heavyweight prospect Kasim Howard takes on experienced journeyman Zack Page.
