Wednesday, November 4

BoxNation (UK), 8:00 am EST, Alexander Povetkin vs Mariusz Wach, Denis Lebedev vs Lateef Kayode, Cesar Cuenca vs Eduard Troyanovsky. This is actually a pretty loaded card with a lot of contenders and legit prospects up and down the bill. In addition to those three fights, Rakhim Chakhkiev will take on Ola Afolabi, Dmitry Kudrayshov faces Olanrewaju Durodola, Dmitry Bivol will meet Jackson Junior, and Viskhan Murzabekov will square off with Solomon Bogere. Also, the WBA women's junior welterweight title will be on the line as Svetlana Kulakova faces Ana Laura Esteche. BLH will have live coverage.

Friday, November 6

SHO, 10:00 pm EST, Antoine Douglas vs Les Sherrington, Taras Shelestyuk vs Aslanbek Kozaev, Keenan Smith vs Benjamin Whitaker, O'Shanique Foster vs Samuel Teah. Pretty standard ShoBox card, with Shelestyuk arguably the fighter most worth tuning in to see. Douglas-Sherrington isn't prospect-on-prospect violence, but a matchup of a prospect (Douglas) against a veteran. BLH will have live coverage.

Saturday, November 7

Sky Sports (UK), 3:00 pm EST, Callum Smith vs Rocky Fielding, Scott Cardle vs Sean Dodd, Ricky Burns vs Josh King. Of all the Smith brothers, young Callum may have the highest ceiling. But this fight against Fielding is a good one, a matchup of unbeatens. Smith seems like the most dynamic fighter, but Fielding is no slouch, and stopped Bryan Vera in two rounds on June 26. Burns is moving back down to 135 for this fight, so that's something else to watch for. BLH will have live coverage.

NBC Sports, 9:00 pm EST, Kevin Bizier vs Fredrick Lawson, Walter Castillo vs Keita Obara. Generally we'd cover any PBC show, as I think we proved this weekend, but this one is going up against a much better show on HBO. If the HBO show started at 11, sure, but it starts a half hour after this one does. So, you know, no. But Bizier-Lawson isn't really a bad fight. Bizier is a capable but limited fighter and Lawson is a decent prospect.

HBO, 9:30 pm EST, Timothy Bradley vs Brandon Rios, Vasyl Lomachenko vs Romulo Koasicha. Bradley-Rios has Fight of the Year type potential, and also the intrigue of Bradley working with trainer Teddy Atlas for the first time. A win for either guy puts them in line for a big fight in 2016, and a win for Bradley could potentially get him a third fight with Manny Pacquiao in April. Lomachenko's opponent isn't really qualified, and shouldn't be any trouble for the Ukrainian, who is probably the greatest fighter to ever live, making Sugar Ray Robinson look like some type of flat footed bum. BLH will have live coverage.
