FS1, 9:00 pm EST, Gerald Washington vs Amir Mansour, Michael Hunter vs Jason Douglas. Another nice Tuesday nice PBC main event, risky for unbeaten heavyweight Washington, who may be biting off more than he can chew against the rugged Mansour, who has been in with much better competition. BLH will have live coverage.

Wednesday, October 14

ESPN, 9:00 pm EST, Devon Alexander vs Aron Martinez, Lee Selby vs Fernando Montiel. Alexander-Martinez is on paper a junk PBC main event, but Martinez gave Robert Guerrero hell for a majority of their fight back in June, and he's a gritty, scrappy underdog type. Alexander isn't so good or so hot right now that he can just be figured to get an easy win headed in. Selby-Montiel is for Selby's featherweight title. BLH will have live coverage.

Thursday, October 15

Sky Arena PPV (NZ), , Joseph Parker vs Kali Meehan. This fight is a real big deal in New Zealand and basically nowhere else, but I mean, you know, it's not like Burger King is supporting fights in the States.

Friday, October 16

Spike, 9:00 pm EST, Andrzej Fonfara vs Nathan Cleverly, Kohei Kono vs Koki Kameda. A really solid PBC doubleheader here, as Fonfara-Cleverly is meaningful at 175, with the winner likely in line for a world title shot against Adonis Stevenson in 2016, and Kono-Kameda is for Kono's WBA super flyweight belt. BLH will have live coverage.

truTV, 10:00 pm EST, Seanie Monaghan vs Don George, Brad Solomon vs Raymond Serrano. Monaghan-George is a potential banger in the main event -- neither guy is an elite fighter, but they're well matched and Monaghan is a favorite in the NY/NJ area, so it should get a hot crowd. Brad Solomon has aged past "prospect" status but isn't a contender, so it's kind of now or never for him to get going. BLH will have live coverage.

Telemundo, 11:35 pm EST, David Carmona vs Ricardo Rodriguez.

Saturday, October 17

Sky Sports (UK), Sam Eggington vs Dale Evans, Kal Yafai vs Jason Cunningham, Matthew Macklin vs Jason Welborn. Usually we would have Sky coverage on some level on a Saturday afternoon, but there's a competing PBC card, and also this show isn't very ... good. Not that Dale Evans.

NBC, 4:00 pm EST, Lamont Peterson vs Felix Diaz Jr, Prichard Colon vs Terrell Williams. Lamont Peterson is the kind of top level fighter who can be vulnerable in just about any fight, but usually he does well at this level. Diaz is a former Olympic gold medalist, but fights nothing like a stereotypical top amateur, and has been lukewarm as a pro despite being unbeaten to date. Still, not a bad fight for either guy right now. BLH will have live coverage.

HBO PPV / BoxNation (UK), 9:00 pm EST, Gennady Golovkin vs David Lemieux, Roman Gonzalez vs Brian Viloria, Tureano Johnson vs Eamonn O'Kane, Luis Ortiz vs Matias Ariel Vidondo. This is the big one for the week, as GGG headlines his first PPV ("reasonably" priced at $49.95 SD and $59.95 HD -- reasonable because it's less than they've been destroying your wallet for in the last few years), and the Chocolatito-Viloria co-feature is a good matchup. The other two fights are less interesting, but that's PPV for you. BLH will have live coverage.

UniMas, 11:00 pm EST, Jessie Magdaleno vs Vergel Nebran, Trevor McCumby vs Dustin Craig Echard.
