ESPN2, 9:00 pm EDT, Rustam Nugaev vs Denis Shafikov, Jose Pedraza vs Juan Carlos Martinez. A really solid FNF main event, with Nugaev and Shafikov both fringe contenders at 135 pounds. Shafikov lost in February to Miguel Vazquez in Macau, and now is looking for a bounce-back win. Nugaev has won six straight, five straight by stoppage.
TV Publica (ARG), 10:00 pm EDT, Maria Elena Maderna vs Amanda Serrano.
TyC Sports (ARG), 10:00 pm EDT, Walter Gabriel Sequeira vs Gaston Eduardo Soria.

BoxNation (UK) / ARD (DEU), 2:00 pm EDT, Yoan Pablo Hernandez vs Firat Arslan, Jack Culcay vs Isaac Real, Tyron Zeuge vs Baker Barakat. Arslan, now 43, is still living off of his 2012 comeback, when he drew Alexander Alekseev and lost a close fight to Marco Huck. Last year, Huck stopped him in six in a rematch. He shouldn't really be getting this world title fight, but he is. Hernandez is the IBF and RING Magazine champion of the division. The undercard is the usual.
SHO Extreme / Sky Sports (UK), 7:00 pm EDT, Deontay Wilder vs Jason Gavern, Jorge Linares vs Ira Terry. Both of these fights are crappy mismatches. Wilder's staying busy and Linares is doing whatever it is this is for him. BLH will have live coverage.
SHO / Sky Sports (UK), 9:00 pm EDT, Shawn Porter vs Kell Brook, Sakio Bika vs Anthony Dirrell (rematch), Omar Figueroa vs Daniel Estrada. Porter-Brook is a damn good fight between a couple guys you could reason as top five welterweights, for Porter's IBF title. The other two fights are decent mid-level world title fights. Bika is defending against Dirrell in a rematch of their draw from last December, and Figueroa vs Estrada could be a war. It's the StubHub, so something will be. BLH will have live coverage.
TyC Sports (ARG), 10:00 pm EDT, Sebastian Lujan vs Jorge Daniel Miranda.
