FOX Sports 1, 10:00 pm EST, Josesito Lopez vs Mike Arnaoutis, Francisco Vargas vs Jerry Belmontes, Jermall Charlo vs Joseph De Los Santos, Joseph Diaz Jr vs Carlos Rodriguez, Errol Spence Jr vs Noe Bolanos. Lopez has had a hell of a run of exciting and career-shortening fights, and now he's getting a chance to get himself back with a win against Arnaoutis, once considered a potential contender at 140 and now just a veteran also-ran and pro opponent. It's a five-fight televised card that should move quickly. BLH will have live coverage.
SHO Extreme, 10:30 pm EST, All Access: Broner vs Maidana (episode two).
Saturday, December 14
Main Event PPV (AUS) / Sky (NZ), 1:00 am EST, Shane Cameron vs Brian Minto. People are being asked to pay money to see this fight. This is a FNF-level heavyweight bout in terms of relevance, but it could be decent action. I'd rather watch this than whatever the next Klitschko fight is, in all honesty.
PolSat Sport (POL), 1:30 pm EST, Krzysztof Glowacki vs Serdar Sahin.
Eurosport (UK), 2:00 pm EST, Timo Hoffmann vs Steffen Kretschmann, Yakup Saglam vs Roman Golovashchenko, Rashad Karimov vs Miguel Velozo, Fariz Mamedov vs Matthias Pelk.
BoxNation (UK), 2:00 pm EST, Juergen Braehmer vs Marcus Oliveira,
David Price vs Evgeny Orlov. Braehmer-Oliveira is for the vacant WBA "regular" title, because Beibut Shumenov is now the "super" champion, what with his year and a half out of the ring and incredible title defenses against the likes of William Joppy, Enrique Ornelas, and Danny Santiago. Actually, I guess the WBA has decided the "IBA" belt that Shumenov holds qualifies as "unification," and thus they need a new normal, regular, "world" champion. They want money, in short. Price is in a make-or-break fight here, and he might well score a second round win, or he might well get knocked out again. A lot will depend on where he's at mentally. Price is out with a virus. BLH will have live coverage, mixed with coverage of the Sky show (below).
Sky Sports (UK), 3:00 pm EST, Leonard Bundu vs Lee Purdy, Kevin Mitchell vs Brunet Zamora. There will be a single live thread for the BoxNation and Sky broadcasts on Saturday afternoon, because there might as well just be one. Bundu-Purdy is for the vacant European welterweight title. Purdy has missed the weight for both of his last two fights, which were also welterweight bouts. So this is a great reward for that. BLH will have live coverage, mixed with coverage of the BoxNation show (above).
NBC Sports, 8:00 pm EST, Amir Mansour vs Kelvin Price, Ryan Coyne vs Lionell Thompson. Mansour, 41, is an interesting story. He can fight. His 19-0 record isn't B.S., he's beaten a schedule of guys just about as good as a lot of fighters have, including some much better-promoted heavyweights. But he's 41. And he's lost a lot of his career due to prison stints. This year he's beaten Dominique Alexander, Jason Gavern, and Maurice Harris. He tries to close the year at 4-0 with this fight, and maybe work toward a world title shot in 2014. Time for that is limited, obviously. Coyne, a St. Louis club fighter, was once upon a time (last year) headed toward a world title shot against Nathan Cleverly, but former promoter Don King blocked that, because, y'know. Don King. Coyne then lost to Marcus Oliveira via TKO-11 earlier this year. Now he faces Lionell Thompson, who started this whole crazy Sergey Kovalev phenomenon when Kovalev stopped him in three in September 2012.
SHO / Televisa (MEX) / BoxNation (UK) / Main Event PPV (AUS), 8:00 pm EST, Adrien Broner vs Marcos Maidana, Keith Thurman vs Jesus Soto Karass, Leo Santa Cruz vs Cesar Seda, Beibut Shumenov vs Tamas Kovacs. We'll have a ton more on this show, obviously, but it's a nice card overall, though the first two of the world title bouts here (Santa Cruz-Seda and Shumenov-Kovacs) are exciting only if you have a humongous crush on Leo Santa Cruz, and that would be fair enough, really, he's great fun. I mean, Seda's a decent fighter, but when looking at Leo's schedule, I think it's fairly clear he's being protected a good amount. Fan favorites tend to get passes. The main event could be something really special as Showtime closes a huge year for their boxing brand. BLH will have live coverage.
CadenaTres (MEX), 10:00 pm EST, Antonio Lozada Jr vs Ramiro Alcaraz.
Televisa (MEX), 11:30 pm EST, Daniel Estrada vs Cesar Chavez, Frankie Gomez vs Prince Doku Jr.
UniMas, 11:35 pm EST, Gamalier Rodriguez vs Aldimar Silva Santos, Denis Shafikov vs Bayan Jargal.
