2015 is winding down, but there are some big names in action this week, with the TV schedule stretching from Tuesday through Saturday.

Tuesday, December 8

FOX Sports 1, 9:00 pm EST, Juan Dominguez vs Yenifel Vicente, Keith Tapia vs Garrett Wilson. PBC is back on FS1 with this doubleheader from New Jersey, featuring super bantamweights Dominguez and Vicente in the main event. This card also has Chad Dawson returning off TV, along with Denis Douglin vs Elvin Ayala, also off TV. BLH will have live coverage.

Friday, December 11

truTV, 10:00 pm EST, Felix Verdejo vs Josenilson Dos Santos, Nonito Donaire vs Cesar Juarez. Verdejo is still slated to be Puerto Rico's next big star, both at home and potentially in New York City, while Donaire is continuing his comeback bid at 122 pounds. It's a nice looking doubleheader for truTV, with a couple of fights that mean something. BLH will have live coverage.

SHO, 10:00 pm EST, Regis Prograis vs Abel Ramos, Steed Woodall vs Steve Rolls, Bryant Cruz vs Wesley Ferrer, Ivan Baranchyk vs Andrew Ruiz. Showtime's final card of 2015 is a ShoBox quadrupleheader from Houston. We'll have an eye on it, but dedicated live coverage will go to the truTV bill.

Saturday, December 12

Sky Box Office (UK), Noon EST, Anthony Joshua vs Dillian Whyte, Chris Eubank Jr vs Gary O'Sullivan, Tony Bellew vs Mateusz Masternak, Kevin Mitchell vs Ismael Barroso, Luke Campbell vs Yvan Mendy, Gianluca Branco vs Paulie Malignaggi. This has an eight-hour window, but our live coverage will include just the fights listed here. "Just" those. It's six fights. BLH will have live coverage.

NBC, 8:30 pm EST, Omar Figueroa vs Antonio DeMarco, Dominic Breazeale vs Charles Martin, Chris Arreola vs Travis Kauffman. I think this show will continue after on NBC Sports, where you'd be able to see Terrell Gausha, Hugo Centeno Jr, Victor Ortiz, and maybe Adam Lopez in tune-up action. The main event seems lousy because DeMarco is pretty washed up looking in recent fights, but Figueroa rarely makes anything easy on himself, and there could be big action in that fight and in Arreola-Kauffman, for however long they last. BLH will have live coverage.

UniMas, 11:00 pm EST, Jose Benavidez vs Sidney Siqueira, Oscar Valdez vs Ernie Sanchez. Benavidez is moving up to welterweight for this fight, as his prospect star has faded a bit in recent fights. Valdez may now be the fighter more worth tuning in to see on this show. Also in action: Esquiva Falcao, Jesse Hart, Alex Saucedo, Andy Ruiz Jr, and Luis Ramos Jr.
