Wladimir Klitschko defends the world heavyweight title against Alex Leapai, and Keith Thurman headlines a Showtime triple-header on Saturday.

Thursday, April 24

ESPN2, 9:00 pm EDT, Josesito Lopez vs Aron Martinez, Thomas Williams Jr vs Enrique Ornelas. Lopez is back with another tune-up sort of bout, at least on paper. Following back-to-back brutal losses to Canelo Alvarez and Marcos Maidana, Lopez looked a bit shaky against Mike Arnaoutis in a TD-8 win last December, but may have gotten a nice little refresher since then. Martinez isn't a bad fighter, though. BLH will have live coverage.

Friday, April 25

TV Publica (ARG), 10:00 pm EDT, Gabriel Fernando Punalef Calfin vs Elias Leandro Vallejos.

Saturday, April 26

BoxNation / Eurosport (AUS), 3:45 pm EDT, Lucas Browne vs Eric Martel Bahoeli, Karim Guerfi vs Zhanat Zhakiyanov.

ESPN / RTL (DEU) / Eurosport 2 (UK) / Main Event PPV (AUS) / Sky Arena PPV (NZ), 5:00 pm EDT, Wladimir Klitschko vs Alex Leapai. This is going to be truly exciting. The good news is that you can easily watch in the U.S. without having to stream anything. The bad news is that on paper, this is just another Klitschko mismatch. BLH will have live coverage.

SHO Extreme, 7:00 pm EDT, Antonio Orozco vs Martin Honorio, Joseph Diaz Jr vs Luis Maldonado. A pair of good young prospects in action on SHO Extreme this weekend, worth tuning in for sure. Orozco and Diaz are both exciting enough to watch. BLH will have live coverage.

SHO, 9:00 pm EDT, All Access: Mayweather vs Maidana (Episode Two).

SHO / BoxNation (UK), 9:30 pm EDT, Keith Thurman vs Julio Diaz, Lucas Matthysse vs John Molina, Omar Figueroa vs Jerry Belmontes. Well, the action should be there. It's an open question as to whether or not any of these fights will be remotely competitive, or if we're going to see three blowouts that end early. The sleeper underdog here might be Belmontes, a spoiler fighter facing a potentially rusty Figueroa. BLH will have live coverage.

TyC Sports (ARG), 10:00 pm EDT, Yesica Yolanda Bopp vs Daniela Romina Bermudez.

UniMas, 11:00 pm EDT, Jose Zepeda vs Robert Frankel.

Azteca 7 (MEX), 11:30 pm EDT, Juan Francisco Estrada vs Richie Mepranum, Tyson Marquez vs John Mark Apolinario.
