Thursday, March 26

ESPN2, 9:00 pm EST, Fredrick Lawson vs Breidis Prescott, Rances Barthelemy vs Angino Perez. One final Breidis Prescott main event on ESPN2, unless he manages to sneak into another one before May 22. Unbeaten Lawson is coming off of an October win over Ray Narh, so this is pretty much an exactly sideways step. Prescott has lost two of three and is just 7-6 since his infamous knockout of Amir Khan in 2008. Barthelemy is not defending his IBF super featherweight title in the co-feature. BLH will have live coverage.

brook vs dan banner

SHO / Sky Sports (UK), 3:30 pm EST (6:15 EST SHO), Kell Brook vs Jo Jo Dan. The Sky airing in the UK starts at 3:30, with the SHO broadcast (which is just the main event) starting at 6:15 pm EST. Brook-Dan is a solid fight and decent first defense for Kell Brook, who's also coming back from a pretty sizable layoff after his first scheduled defense in December was canceled after a stabbing. The Sky show also has undercard fights with Frankie Gavin vs Bogdan Mitic, Gavin McDonnell vs Oleksandr Yegorov, and Adam Etches vs Sergey Khomitsky. Kal Yafai is also in action, and former bantamweight titleholder Anselmo Moreno returns against Robbie Turley in a fight that feels destined to be called off. BLH will have live coverage.

SHO, 10:00 pm EST, Jhonny Gonzalez vs Gary Russell Jr, Jermell Charlo vs Vanes Martirosyan. Gonzalez puts the WBC featherweight title up against Russell in the main event, in what could be a very intriguing fight. The co-feature is also solid, a make-or-break sort of fight for Charlo at junior middleweight, as he takes on the tested Martirosyan, who is still in his prime and has given Erislandy Lara and Demetrius Andrade trouble in his only pro setbacks, a draw and a loss.

beIN Sports Español / Azteca (MEX), 11:00 pm EST, Juan Francisco Estrada vs Rommel Asenjo, Miguel Berchelt vs Rene Gonzalez. Estrada, who is probably the second-best flyweight in the world behind Chocolatito Gonzalez, defends his WBA and WBO belts against Asenjo.
