AWE / Sky Sports 2 (UK), 2:00 pm EST, Ricky Burns vs Terence Crawford, John Simpson vs John Murray, Scott Cardle vs Paul Appleby, Anthony Ogogo vs Greg O'Neill, Anthony Joshua vs Hector Alfredo Avila. A dangerous main event matchup for Burns without question, as Crawford is a quick-rising contender in the weight class. That said, Burns is a major step up for the Nebraskan, too. BLH has live coverage.

BoxNation (UK) / SAT1 (DEU), 2:00 pm EST, Robert Stieglitz vs Arthur Abraham (third fight), Christina Hammer vs Jessica Balogun, Dennis Ronert vs Shefat Isufi, Michael Wallisch vs Frank Schadwill. Adding to the great trilogies in history, here's Stieglitz-Abraham III: The War to Settle the Score.

Channel 5 (UK), 4:10 pm EST, James DeGale vs Gevorg Khatchikian, Lee Haskins vs Elton Dharry. DeGale is back against his normal level of opposition, meaning a guy who doesn't have much chance to win. Khatchikian is 20-0 (8 KO), but he's fought nobody.

HBO / Azteca 7 (MEX) / Main Event PPV (AUS), 9:45 pm EST, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr vs Bryan Vera (rematch), Orlando Salido vs Vasyl Lomachenko. LOOK! HBO has another fight! This is a big fight for Chavez. He's not quite the superstar he was before he lost to Sergio Martinez, then failed a drug test, and then looked lousy against Vera last year, only to get a decision so gifted that he's been forced to rematch a mid-level brawler who was a stretch as an HBO main event fighter the first time around. If he can't convincingly win this one, Chavez will take a real hit. And will he even be in shape? Who knows? Perhaps the more intriguing fight here is the co-feature between Salido and Lomachenko, which is for Salido's WBO featherweight title. This is just Lomachenko's second pro fight -- he's beyond just a blue chip prospect, but even still, this is extremely ambitious. BLH will have live coverage.

TyC Sports (ARG), 10:00 pm EST, Erica Annabella Farias vs Maria Eugenia Lopez.
