ESPN2, 9:00 pm EST, Willie Monroe Jr vs Bryan Vera, Petr Petrov vs Hank Lundy. Last year's Boxcino tournament winners return to action to take on a pair of battle-tested veterans in this week's FNF doubleheader, both fights set for 10 rounds. Monroe, the middleweight victor, and Petrov, the winner at lightweight, may have their hands more than full against Vera and Lundy, two guys who don't go away easily and bring plenty of action. Petrov-Lundy in particular might be one of those quiet Fight of the Year type matchups that nobody's really paying attention to. (Hyperbole? Sure!) BLH will have live coverage.
TyC Sports (ARG), 10:00 pm EST, Sebastian Lujan vs TBA.

SHO, 10:00 pm EST, Bermane Stiverne vs Deontay Wilder, Leo Santa Cruz vs Jesus Ruiz, Amir Imam vs Fidel Maldonado Jr. The main event is the obvious draw here, as we're either going to see Wilder prove he's for real, or Wilder get exposed as a fraud who has been beating the crap out of garbage opposition. This is for the only heavyweight title that Wladimir Klitschko does not hold, and the winner will also be firmly established as the No. 2 man in the division. Santa Cruz is facing another on-paper creampuff foe in Ruiz -- because the fans love to have a good fight excitement! -- and Imam-Maldonado is a solid matchup for Imam, a good-looking 24-year-old junior welterweight prospect. BLH will have live coverage.
UniMas, 11:00 pm EST, Jose Zepeda vs Rafael Cobbs, Saul Rodriguez vs Carlos Rodriguez.
