Monday, October 14

FOX Sports 1, 9:00 pm EDT, Jermell Charlo vs Jose Angel Rodriguez, Errol Spence vs Emmanuel Lartei Lartey, Rau'Shee Warren vs Jhon Alberto Molina. I do know that the first two are being televised, and my guess is that the Warren fight will be the sandwich bout, or else it will be Jeffrey Fontanez vs Gerardo Zayas. Charlo (21-0, 10 KO) is taking a step back, probably, from his win over Demetrius Hopkins, or a sideways step at best. Rodriguez (17-2-1, 2 KO) can't punch, but he's won two straight, including a clear decision over Denis "Mama's Boy" Douglin last time out, which was Douglin's first fight since he was stopped last June by Charlo in five rounds on SHO Extreme. Spence (8-0, 7 KO) is taking a decent step forward against Lartey (15-0-1, 7 KO).

Thursday, October 17


FOX Sports 3 (AUS), 6:00 am EDT, Blake Capparello vs Allan Green, Czar Amonsot vs Stevi Ongen Ferdinandus, Leonardo Zappavigna vs Rivan Cesaire.

Friday, October 18

TyC Sports (ARG), 10:00 pm EDT, Matias Carlos Adrian Rueda vs Diego Daniel Tejerina.

Saturday, October 19


3+ (DEN) / TV10 (SWE) / Viasat Sport (NOR), 1:45 pm EDT, Erik Skoglund vs Lolenga Mock.

SAT1 (DEU), 4:30 pm EDT, Robert Stieglitz vs Isaac Ekpo, Manuel Charr vs Denis Bakhtov, Moruti Mthalane vs Silvio Olteanu.

Top Rank TV, 6:30 pm EDT: Alvarado vs Provodnikov undercard feat. Juan Diaz vs Juan Santiago. Not much to see on the undercard from Denver, and I'm not even 100% sure that they're going to have the show streaming, but they basically always do now, so I'd guess they will have it up. Diaz (37-4, 19 KO) fights for the third time on his comeback trail, but if this were an actual trail that Diaz were walking, what he's done so far is basically get to the starting point, take about six steps, stop, look around for a little while, go back to the starting point, take about six steps, stop, look around for a little while, go back to the starting point, and on Saturday he'll take six steps and stop again. These fights are helping him inflate his KO% though.

HBO, 9:45 pm EDT, REPLAY: Timothy Bradley vs Juan Manuel Marquez. If you missed this past weekend's Bradley-Marquez fight on HBO pay-per-view, this one is worth tuning in to see, particularly if you're a big Tim Bradley "hater" who can't fathom he won this fight clean and clear, because that's exactly what he did.


HBO, 9:45 pm EDT, Mike Alvarado vs Ruslan Provodnikov. This one has war written all over it, and that's the biggest reason to join us for live coverage this Saturday night. Alvarado will defend the interim WBO junior welterweight title against Provodnikov. It's arguable that these two have been involved in the two best fights this year, with Provodnikov losing a war to Timothy Bradley on March 16, and Alvarado beating Brandon Rios two weeks after that in their rematch. BLH will have live coverage.

Televisa (MEX), 11:00 pm EDT, Roberto Ortiz vs Reyes Sanchez, Ivan Morales vs Cesar Javier Gandara.
