Monday, January 26

FOX Sports 1, 10:00 pm EST, Rocky Juarez vs Robinson Castellanos, Keandre Gibson vs Nelson Lara. Juarez and Castellanos are two guys with double digit losses, but Juarez has won two in a row and Castellanos has won 12 of 13, including a beatdown of Ronny Rios last October. This is a fight where the winner might be in line for a WBC title shot at 126 pounds. Don't sleep on this one. Gibson is a St. Louis prospect at 140 pounds, while Lara is there to lose. BLH will have live coverage.

Friday, January 30

ESPN2, 9:00 pm EST, Karl Dargan vs Tony Luis, Russell Lamour vs Thomas Falowo. Dargan is a solid lightweight prospect, and Luis is a decent opponent for him. Luis lost to Ivan Redkach in January 2014, but followed that up with a win over Wanzell Ellison in July. Dargan last fought on September 20, beating Angino Perez. Dargan really hasn't been seriously tested as a pro yet, and Luis is a step up for him. BLH will have live coverage.

TyC Sports (ARG), 10:00 pm EST, Ruben Eduardo Acosta vs Rolando Wenceslao Mansilla.

Saturday, January 31

Sky Sports (UK), 3:00 pm EST, Kevin Mitchell vs Daniel Estrada, John Ryder vs Billi Godoy, Tommy Martin vs Ricky Boylan, John Wayne Hibbert vs Tyler Goodjohn. Sky's first boxing bill of the new year takes place at the O2 Arena in London, and was originally to be headlined by Anthony Joshua vs Kevin Johnson. Instead, a pretty nice matchup between lightweights Mitchell and Estrada gets the main event slot, for the vacant WBC silver title. BLH will have live coverage.

TyC Sports (ARG), 10:00 pm EST, Daniela Romina Bermudez vs Vanesa Lorena Taborda.

Azteca (MEX), 11:00 pm EST, Francisco Rodriguez Jr vs Jomar Fajardo. This is a rematch of a fight from November, when Rodriguez went to the Philippines and went the full 10 in a draw with the unheralded Fajardo, whose prize is a trip to Rodriguez's turf in Mexico for another chance at knocking him off. Before that fight, Rodriguez had beaten Merlito Sabillo and Katsunari Takayama to gain the WBO and IBF 105-pound titles.
