Warriors Boxing and Showtime are working on a pair of quadrupleheaders that will air on October 4 and November 1.

The Oct. 4 card at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut will be headlined by Rances Barthelemy (20-0, 12 KOs), who will defend his IBF super featherweight belt against Argentina's Fernando Saucedo (52-5-3, 8 KOs). This will be Barthelemy's first defense of the title he lifted from Argenis Mendez via unanimous decision in July.

Junior middleweights Vanes Martirosyan (34-1-1, 21 KOs) and Willie Nelson (23-1-1, 13 KOs) are also scheduled to square off on the card. Martirosyan has won one fight since suffering his first loss last year to Demetrius Andrade. Nelson suffered his first loss in 2011 and has won seven fights since.

Chad Dawson (32-3, 18 KOs) will fight in the third bout versus a to be announced opponent. Dawson lost the WBC light heavyweight title via first round knockout to Adonis Stevenson in June 2013. Since then, Dawson showed up overweight and knocked out lightly regarded George Blades in June.

The fourth fight for Oct. 4 has not been announced.

The Nov. 1 card in UIC Pavilion in Chicago will be headlined by light heavyweight contender Andrzej Fonfara (25-3, 15 KOs) vs. a to be announced opponent. RingTV.com reports that Argentinean fighter Roberto Bolonti (35-3, 24 KOs) is the front-runner to face Fonfara.

Also on tap for Nov. 1, WBO bantamweight titlist Tomoki Kameda (30-0, 19 KOs) will make the fourth defense of his belt against mandatory challenger, Mexico's Alejandro Hernandez (28-10-2, 15 KOs).

Rounding out the card, welterweight Roberto Garcia (36-3, 23 KOs) and middleweight Caleb Truax (24-1-2, 14 KOs) will fight in separate bouts against to be announced opponents.
