Thursday, December 11

espn 12/11 banner

ESPN2, 10:00 pm EST, Austin Trout vs Luis Grajeda, Oscar Escandon vs Tyson Cave, Antonio Tarver vs Johnathon Banks. A special ESPN2 show in memory of the late Dan Goossen, and a pretty solid lineup both for TV and for those attending live, since there are a ton of other fights set for the show, including Edwin Rodriguez vs Derrick Findley, Dominic Breazeale vs Epifanio Mendoza, Terrell Gausha vs Cesar Vila, Gerald Washington vs Mike Sheppard, Marcus Browne vs Henry Buchanan, Rico Ramos vs Juan Ruiz, Sergio Mora vs Dashon Johnson, and some less famous people. BLH will have live coverage.

Friday, December 12

TyC Sports (ARG), 10:00 pm EST, David Saucedo vs TBA.

SHO, 10:15 pm EST, Erislandy Lara vs Ishe Smith, Badou Jack vs Francisco Sierra, Chris Pearson vs Steve Martinez. Lara-Smith is for the pretend version of the WBA junior middleweight belt that Floyd Mayweather still technically holds even though he might never defend it again. The undercard bouts both feature Mayweather Promotions guys -- half-busted prospect Jack, and actual prospect Pearson. BLH will have live coverage.

Saturday, December 13

nordic fight night banner 12/13

TV 3 Sport 2 (DEN), 11:30 am EST, Patrick Nielsen vs Lukasz Wawrzyczek, Erik Skoglund vs Glen Johnson, Micki Nielsen vs Gusmyr Perdomo.

SHO Extreme, 7:00 pm EST, Victor Ortiz vs Manuel Perez, Jermell Charlo vs Mario Lozano, Errol Spence vs Mike Arnaoutis. These are the prelim fights for the Khan-Alexander card, and considering Victor Ortiz is involved here, you'll want to tune in. BLH will have live coverage.

CBS Sports Network, 8:00 pm EST, Charles Martin vs Raphael Zumbano Love, Mike Lee vs TBA. This is the first CBS Sports Network boxing show of what promises to be a series of live fights that almost everyone completely ignores.

SHO / Sky Sports (UK), 9:00 pm EST, Amir Khan vs Devon Alexander, Keith Thurman vs Leonard Bundu, Abner Mares vs Jose Ramirez, Jermall Charlo vs Lenny Bottai. A crucial welterweight main event for both guys -- neither can afford the loss if they want to land a big fight (potentially Floyd Mayweather) in 2015. Thurman-Bundu is one that might have some sleeper potential, as Bundu is a quality fighter and Thurman will have to really do some good work to impress the way he's done so far in his career. BLH will have live coverage.

HBO / BoxNation (UK), 10:00 pm EST, Timothy Bradley vs Diego Chaves, Mauricio Herrera vs Jose Benavidez, Matt Korobov vs Andy Lee. Bradley-Chaves is a solid main event to end HBO's boxing year, and the card overall is interesting. The sleeper fight of the entire weekend might be Herrera-Benavidez. Herrera is a good, experienced, and intelligent fighter, and while Benavidez is a blue chip type prospect with great physical tools, Herrera's been in with a lot better competition. Korobov-Lee is for the belt Peter Quillin vacated. BLH will have live coverage.

Televisa (MEX), 11:00 pm EST, Armando Santos vs John Riel Casimero, Zulina Munoz vs Olga Julio, Francisco Vargas vs TBA.
