Thursday, March 6

BLH Live Stream, 12:00 pm EST, Final Press Conference: Canelo-Angulo.

Friday, March 7

BLH Live Stream, 3:00 pm EST, Weigh-In: Canelo-Angulo.

ESPN2 / ESPN Deportes / WatchESPN.com, 9:00 pm EST, Roman Morales vs Khabir Suleymanov, Rustam Nugaev vs Marvin Quintero. Morales (17-0, 9 KO) takes a solid step against Suleymanov (16-3, 6 KO), a capable fighter who's won three in a rows since back-to-back losses in 2012. Nugaev (26-6-1, 16 KO) shot new life into his career in April 2013 when he knocked out prospect Jonathan Maicelo. Quintero (25-4, 21 KO) is a quality fringe contender fighting for the first time since a loss to Miguel Vazquez on HBO in 2012.

Saturday, March 8

BoxNation (UK), 2:30 pm EST, Paul Butler vs Diego Liriano, Kevin Satchell vs Isaac Quaye, Ronnie Heffron vs John Thain.

M1 (HUN), 3:30 pm EST, Zsolt Erdei vs Shalva Jormadashvili, Juan Carlos Gomez vs Ivica Bacurin, Attila Kovacs vs Giorgi Ungiadze. This is Erdei's official retirement, as he says farewell in Hungary against Jormadashvili (36-6-2, 27 KO). Erdei (33-1, 18 KO) has fought just once since 2011, anyway, and just three times since 2009. He was last seen in March 2013, losing a debatable decision to Denis Grachev. Jormadashvili isn't nearly as good as his record, and he's a 5'9" middleweight who's been fighting very heavy recently, including a cruiserweight bout last time out. He did win, though.

BLH Live Stream / SHO, 9:00 pm EST, Countdown: Canelo-Angulo. This show will be streamed here on BLH for those of you not in front of your TVs or without Showtime. It was supposed to feature the Linares-Arakawa fight, but that one is being moved onto the PPV now with Omar Figueroa-Ricardo Alvarez off the main show. It would seem likely we'll get Francisco Vargas vs Abner Cotto instead.

SHO PPV / BoxNation (UK) / Televisa (MEX) / Main Event PPV (AUS) / RPC 4 (PAN), 9:00 pm EST, Canelo Alvarez vs Alfredo Angulo, Leo Santa Cruz vs Cristian Mijares, Carlos Molina vs Jermall Charlo, Jorge Linares vs Nihito Arakawa. The show took a small blow when Figueroa-Ricardo Alvarez was canceled from the PPV, but Linares-Arakawa is a fight high on action potential. Molina-Charlo is a 154 pound title fight that will only be fun to watch if you're all arrogant and pat yourself on the back for appreciating tactics (I'm kidding, nobody take offense) and your favorite fighter is Bernard Hopkins. Otherwise, it risks sucking the life out of the venue! Mijares could very well beat Santa Cruz, or he might get worn out in his "old" age. And the main event, whether you agree it should be on PPV or not, should be a better fight than basically all PPV main events that are paid for these days. BLH will have live coverage.

TyC Sports (ARG), 10:00 pm EST, Matias Carlos Adrian Rueda vs Jorge Luis Rodriguez.

Azteca 7 (MEX), 11:30 pm EST, Jorge Arce vs Aldimar Silva Santos, David Alonso Lopez vs Jose Uzcategui.

Frecuencia Latina (PER), 11:30 pm EST, Alberto Rossel vs Gabriel Mendoza.
