Wednesday, November 25

ESPN, 8:00 pm EST, Erislandy Lara vs Jan Zaveck, Emmanuel Rodriguez vs Eliecer Aquino. PBC is back on ESPN for another, you know, one of these shows. Lara has won two straight over Ishe Smith and Delvin Rodriguez, both predictable outcomes, and this doesn't figure to be much different. Zaveck is a former welterweight titleholder but hasn't faced a serious opponent since 2013, when he lost to Keith Thurman. BLH will have live coverage.

Saturday, November 28

NBC, 3:00 pm EST, Jermell Charlo vs Wilky Campfort, Errol Spence Jr vs Alejandro Barrera, Erickson Lubin vs Alexis Camacho. Charlo is making his first world title defense at 154 pounds, with Spence, one of boxing's hottest young stars, also in action. This show has a three-hour window, so it might not be possible to watch it all live without overlapping the Klitschko-Fury fight, but we'll have live coverage for both shows. BLH will have live coverage.

HBO / Sky Box Office (UK) / RTL (DEU), 4:45 pm EST, Wladimir Klitschko vs Tyson Fury. Another weekend, another one of the most highly-anticipated fights of the year. While Klitschko is the heavy favorite and few are picking against him, Fury brings a sort of reckless attitude and sincere ambition that makes it reasonable to expect that even if he is to lose, he's going to force Klitschko to knock him out instead of just surviving for 12 rounds. We'll see. BLH will have live coverage.

HBO, 10:15 pm EST, REPLAYS: Miguel Cotto vs Canelo Alvarez, Wladimir Klitschko vs Tyson Fury.

SHO Extreme, 9:00 pm EST, Amir Imam vs Adrian Granados, Oscar Rivas vs Curtis Harper. Imam is one of the Don King's latest "only fighter," a terrific 140-pound prospect. Granados may not seem like much on paper, but he's a very tough out, one of those guys who has learned on the job without being protected. BLH will have live coverage.

SHO, 11:00 pm EST, James DeGale vs Lucian Bute, Eleider Alvarez vs Isaac Chilemba. The Extreme broadcast ends at 10:30, then the show picks up at 11 EST for the main card from Quebec City, where DeGale makes his first IBF super middleweight title defense against former titleholder Bute. BLH will have live coverage.
