Tuesday, October 6

FS1, 9:00 pm EST, Julius Jackson vs Jose Uzcategui, Miguel Vazquez vs Argenis Mendez. Another solid PBC on FS1 card, with Jackson facing Uzcategui in the super middleweight main event, and Vazquez-Mendez at lightweight. The Vazquez fight is a Vazquez fight so prepare accordingly. BLH will have live coverage.

Friday, October 9

Telemundo, 11:35 pm EST, Orlando Cruz vs Gabino Cota. Boxeo Telemundo continues to exist primarily to showcase Orlando Cruz fights from the Civic Center in Kissimmee, Florida.

Saturday, October 10

beIN Sports / BoxNation (UK), Noon EST, Terry Flanagan vs Diego Magdaleno, Liam Smith vs John Thompson. There's plenty more on this card (Luke Blackledge vs Lee Markham, Thomas Stalker vs Craig Evans, Jack Catterall vs Jarkko Putkonen, etc.), but these are the two big fights, both WBO world title bouts, real old school Frank Warren style. The good thing about these fights is that on paper, they are evenly matched. Magdaleno has fallen short at world level before, but could be trouble here, and Flanagan has been fighting very well. Thompson is coming off his stunning Boxcino tournament win, while Smith is looking to become the first of the Liverpool fighting family to win a world title. BLH will have live coverage.

NBC Sports, 8:00 pm EST, Danny O'Connor vs Gabriel Bracero, Jonathan Guzman vs Danny Aquino, Ryan Kielczewski vs Rafael Vazquez. It's an East Coast club fighter local fan favorite showcase for the ages! While nobody here seems likely to get to world level for real, these are all evenly matched fights on paper and it could be more fun than a lot of TV cards, so why NOT tune in? BLH will have live coverage.

Televisa (MEX), 11:00 pm EST, Mariana Juarez vs Vanesa Taborda, Alberto Guevara vs Rolando Magbanua.

Azteca (MEX), 11:30 pm EST, Ramon Alvarez vs Ben Tackie. Ramon is one of Canelo Alvarez's smaller, less talented brothers, who don't have red hair. He's got a short notice opponent in 42-year-old Ben Tackie, who steps in for Jorge Paez Jr. Tackie lost six straight between 2007 and 2010, then didn't fight again until March 2014, beating a club fighter in Ghana. He hasn't fought since then, either.

WatchESPN.com, 11:30 pm EST, Jorge Linares vs Ivan Cano. This is when the main event is expected to go on, with the card starting at 6:30 pm EST. There's some decent undercard stuff, but since we'll be covering the PBC on NBCSN show, we're just going to get the main event here, which is a frankly crap matchup for Linares' WBC lightweight belt. But it's a fight and easy to see so neat. BLH will have live coverage.
