Kovalev vs Agnew, Hall vs Ward, Boxcino Lightweights, more: Boxing TV schedule for March 27-29

Sergey Kovalev returns to defend the WBO light heavyweight title against Cedric Agnew on HBO Boxing After Dark, while Stuart Hall defends the IBF bantamweight title against Martin Ward on BoxNation.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Thursday, March 27

Channel 9 (THA), 2:00 am EDT, Pharanpetch Tor Buamas vs Rey Las Pinas.

Friday, March 28

Kabel 1 (DEU), 4:00 pm EDT, Ramona Kuehne vs Gina Chamie, Robin Krasniqi vs Emmanuel Daso, Dominic Boesel vs Miguel Velozo, Steffen Kretschmann vs Samir Kurtagic.

ESPN, 9:00 pm EDT, Boxcino Lighweight Semifinals: Chris Rudd vs Petr Petrov, Miguel Gonzalez vs Fernando Carcamo. Boxcino was a good time in the first round, with the lightweights outperforming the middleweights, and now the tournament continues as the four lightweight semifinalists meet up. After round one, Petrov looked like the clear favorite, but who knows? Both fights are set for eight rounds. BLH will have live coverage.

TyC Sports (ARG), 10:00 pm EDT, Marcela Eliana Acuna vs Estrella Valverde, Raul Horacio Centeno vs Diego Alberto Chaves.

Telemundo, 11:30 pm EDT, Marvin Mabait vs Alejandro Hernandez.

Saturday, March 29


BoxNation (UK), 2:00 pm EDT, Stuart Hall vs Martin Ward, Frankie Gavin vs Sacky Shikukutu, Jon Lewis Dickinson vs Neil Dawson, Bradley Saunders vs Mitch Prince, Gary Cornish vs Tibor Balogh. Hall makes his first defense of the IBF bantamweight title against Ward, a southpaw who lost to Lee Haskins last year in a British title fight. The rest of the card is about standard BoxNation undercard material, Frankie Gavin fighting a man named Sacky. BLH will have live coverage.


HBO, 10:00 pm EDT, Sergey Kovalev vs Cedric Agnew, Karim Mayfield vs Thomas Dulorme. No one's going to argue that this is the most exciting Boxing After Dark card on paper, but, hey, at least there's boxing on HBO again, and Kovalev's always fun. He's an enormous favorite here, because Agnew has never beaten anyone better than Yusaf Mack, and he's not a real contender, at least going in. Mayfield-Dulorme may be the better fight; Mayfield is looking to move into a title opportunity at 140, while Dulorme is hoping to rescue his career under Robert Garcia. BLH will have live coverage.

TyC Sports (ARG), 10:00 pm EDT, Debora Anahi Dionicius vs Neisi Torres.

UniMas, 11:00 pm EDT, Alejandro Perez vs Juan Carlos Martinez, Brian Viloria vs Juan Herrera, Jose Benavidez vs Jesus Selig, Jose Ramirez vs Boyd Henley.
