Wednesday, October 22

japan 10/22 banner

NTV (JAP), 6:56 am EDT, Shinsuke Yamanaka vs Suriyan Sor Rungvisai, Takahiro Ao vs Juan Carlos Salgado. A couple of solid fights, with Yamanaka defending his WBC bantamweight title. Ao-Salgado is a lightweight 10-rounder between a couple of former super featherweight titleholders looking to get in the race. Salgado's lost two straight. BLH will try to have live coverage.

Friday, October 24

Rossiya-2 (RUS), 11:20 am EDT, Alexander Povetkin vs Carlos Takam, Rakhim Chakhkiev vs Giacobbe Fragomeni. Takam is defending the WBC silver heavyweight title in this one against former bogus WBA "champion" Povetkin, who looks to pick up his second straight win after his loss last year to Wladimir Klitschko. It's a decent fight on paper, and both are contenders, such as it were. BLH will have live coverage.

Eurosport (UK), 3:00 pm EDT, Craig Kennedy vs Wadi Camacho.

TV Publica (ARG), 10:00 pm EDT, Isidro Ranoni Prieto vs Ruben Eduardo Acosta.

Telemundo, 11:30 pm EDT, Edwin Rodriguez vs Ricardo Rodriguez, Daniel Rosario Cruz vs Jose Alberto Leal.

Saturday, October 25

BoxNation (UK), 2:00 pm EDT, Paul Butler vs Ismael Garnica, Derry Mathews vs Adam Dingsdale, Liam Smith vs Zoltan Sera, Thomas Stalker vs Jack Catterall, Valery Yanchy vs Kevin Satchell. This was another of Warren's billed "Magnificent 7" shows, which fell right the hell apart as they seem to do every single time he tries to use that name. Butler was supposed to be fighting Zolani Tete for a world title, but Tete bailed. Ovill McKenzie was supposed to be facing Matty Askin, but that's off. But overall it's still an OK time-killer card. It'll be part of our afternoon live coverage blowout. BLH will have live coverage.

Sky Sports (UK), 2:30 pm EDT, Luke Campbell vs Daniel Eduardo Brizuela, Tommy Coyle vs Michael Katsidis, Gavin McDonnell vs Vusi Malinga. This has Michael Katsidis, and he's an International Star who has beaten UK fighters in the UK before, so it will be largely ignored that he's 34 and doesn't have a good win since 2010, when he beat Kevin Mitchell. But in all reality, Katsidis could conceivably win this fight. Maybe. I mean, he couldn't beat Albert Mensah, which wasn't on Mensah being good. Campbell continues his journey as a draw in Hull, and McDonnell-Malinga is a decent fight on paper. BLH will have live coverage.

Channel 5 (UK), 3:30 pm EDT, Stuart Hall vs Randy Caballero, Martin Murray vs Domenico Spada, Hekkie Budler vs Xiong Zhao Zhong, Eleider Alvarez vs Ryno Liebenberg. Once this card goes live, our main focus will be on the Hall-Caballero fight, which is for the vacant IBF bantamweight title. Hall, 34, is a scrappy guy who previously held the belt but lost it to Paul Butler in June on a split decision. Butler then vacated to move down to 115 for a title shot, but as mentioned, that fight is off for Saturday. So Hall gets to face Caballero in Monaco. Murray is back against familiar tune-up fighter Spada. The TV window isn't that big for this, so I doubt we see the latter two fights on the Channel 5 broadcast. BLH will have live coverage.

TyC Sports (ARG), 10:00 pm EDT, Jonathan Victor Barros vs Sergio Javier Escobar.

UniMas, 11:00 pm EDT, Jose Ramirez vs David Rodela, Andy Ruiz Jr vs Kenny Lemos. Ramirez is right there with Errol Spence and Joseph Diaz Jr as the best U.S. prospects to come out of London 2012, and Rodela is a nice next step for him. Ruiz is back in action -- knock on wood -- after a couple canceled fights. He hasn't fought since May 17, when he knocked out Manuel Quezada in two rounds. He's taking a step back against Lemos, a club fighter. BLH will have live coverage.

rivas ramadan

Televisa (MEX), 11:00 pm EDT, Yazmin Rivas vs Susie Ramadan, Rodrigo Guerrero vs Jonathan Baat.
