Garcia vs Martinez, Donaire vs Darchinyan II, Martirosyan vs Andrade, more: Boxing TV schedule

Mikey Garcia and Nonito Donaire are positioned to be featured in an HBO triple-header, headlining this weekend's boxing action.

Al Bello

Thursday, November 7

FOX Sports (AUS), 6:00 am EST, Brett William Smith vs Joey Williams, Nathan Carroll vs Dennis Hogan.

Friday, November 8

Eurosport (UK), 2:30 pm EST, Lee Haskins vs Jason Booth, Hughie Fury vs David Gegeshidze.

Direct TV (ARG), 11:00 pm EST, Martin Antonio Coggi vs Cesar David Inalef, Sebastian Lujan vs Carlos Saul Chumbita.

Saturday, November 9


HBO, 9:30 pm EST, Rocky Martinez vs Mikey Garcia, Nonito Donaire vs Vic Darchinyan (rematch), Vanes Martirosyan vs Demetrius Andrade. It's a redemption-themed triple-header on HBO, as Donaire looks to get back into the winner's circle against his old foe Darchinyan, Garcia looks to make a new statement at 130 after missing weight in his first scheduled 126-pound title defense, and Martirosyan looks to finally make a statement that he belongs on HBO. I mean, let me be clear about this: Martirosyan belongs on HBO in that he's certainly a good enough fighter to be on HBO. Seth Mitchell has been featured on premium networks, for God's sake. But Martirosyan doesn't have any "it" factors going for him, and past HBO fights with Joe Greene (2010) and Erislandy Lara (last year) left a lot to be desired in terms of entertainment. BLH will have live coverage.


*Televisa (MEX), 11:30 pm EST, Jessica Chavez vs Arely Mucino, Juan Carlos Salgado vs Mickey Roman. In the main event Mexico's #1 junior flyweight defends her WBC Silver female light flyweight title against Mexico's #1 flyweight. Chavez is the better technician but Mucino is pretty skilled herself and a real crowd-pleaser. The fight is big enough to legitimately have a recent male world champion (Salgado) on the undercard. His opponent (Roman) is respectable considering that Salgado's coming off a brutal KO loss and moving up in weight.

UniMas, 11:30 pm EST, Alejandro Perez vs Miguel Zamudio.

Sunday, November 10


WOWOW (JAP), 6:00 am EST, Shinsuke Yamanaka vs Alberto Guevara, Jorge Linares vs TBA. Jorge Linares was meant to challenge Richar Abril for a 135-pound title on this show, but Abril pulled out with an injury. Yamanaka defends the WBC bantamweight title against Guevara in the main event. You may remember Guevara from a decent challenge last December against Leo Santa Cruz on CBS. Chocolatito Gonzalez and Takahiro Ao are also scheduled for this card.
