Thompson vs Price II, Alvarez vs Green, Sturm vs Radosevic, more: Boxing TV schedule for July 5-6

It's a pretty lean weekend, but David Price will face Tony Thompson in a heavyweight rematch from Liverpool, with Eleider Alvarez, Billy Dib, Felix Sturm, and more in action.

Alex Livesey

Friday, July 5

TyC Sports (Argentina), 9:00 pm EDT, Claudio Ariel Abalos vs Victor Hugo Mujica.

ESPN2, 9:00 pm EDT, Eleider Alvarez vs Allan Green, Billy Dib vs Mike Oliver. Alvarez is a really good looking light heavyweight prospect, and though Green has long since been exposed as below the top class of the sport, he's still potentially Alvarez's best opponent to date. Dib is looking to bounce back from his loss to Evgeny Gradovich, and Oliver, though talented and still possessing very quick hands, is about as chinny as they come. Also, it's 50 Cent's birthday! In Da Club! That's a song about birthdays! BLH will have live coverage.

Saturday, July 6


WealthTV / BoxNation (UK), 2:00 pm EDT, Tony Thompson vs David Price (rematch), Darren Hamilton vs Adil Anwar, Kevin Satchell vs Iain Butcher. Price will be looking for some revenge against 41-year-old Thompson, who finished him off in just the second round when they met in February. The good news is that Lennox Lewis was once knocked out by Oliver McCall (and Hasim Rahman) and Wladimir Klitschko was once knocked out by Corrie Sanders, so it's not exactly over for Price. This is a chance for redemption. BLH will have live coverage.

SAT1 (Germany), 4:45 pm EDT, Felix Sturm vs Predrag Radosevic. We might do live coverage of this fight if it lines up right, but I don't expect that it will. Also, it's a lousy fight.

TyC Sports (Argentina), 9:00 pm EDT, Debora Anahi Dionicius vs Marisa Johanna Portillo.

Televisa, 11:30 pm EDT, Janeth Perez vs Maria Elena Villalobos, Andres Gutierrez vs Rey Perez, Ricardo Alvarez vs Reyes Sanchez.

CadenaTres, 11:30 pm EDT, Jessica Nery Plata vs Yesenia Martinez Castrejon, Carlos Zarate Jr vs Israel Ramirez.
