Spike / BoxNation (UK), 9:00 pm EST, Amir Khan vs Chris Algieri, Bryan Vasquez vs Javier Fortuna. Amir Khan returns for what may or may not be an audition to face Floyd Mayweather in September. Khan's been close to that fight before and fallen short, and nobody's really giving Algieri a shot here. The co-feature is a really good fight at 130 pounds, much better than the Malignaggi-O'Connor fight that was originally supposed to be in this spot. BLH will have live coverage.

CBS Sports Network, 10:00 pm EST, Lateef Kayode vs Nick Kisner. Kayode hasn't fought since September, when he was stopped in one by Luis Ortiz, a result that was later overturned after Ortiz failed a drug test. Kayode's two pro blemishes have both become no-contests, including his 2012 draw with Antonio Tarver. This will be Kayode's return to cruiserweight after three fights as a heavyweight.

Sky Box Office (UK), Noon EST, Kell Brook vs Frankie Gavin, Jorge Linares vs Kevin Mitchell, Evgeny Gradovich vs Lee Selby, Anthony Joshua vs Kevin Johnson. A big card from the O2 in London, with three world title fights and two that are competitive on paper. Plus, Gavin is a very good talent who may give Brook more of a test than anticipated. Or not. Odds are not. Joshua-Johnson should be interesting as a next step for Joshua, as Johnson is a "negative" fighter whose greatest skill is surviving the distance. He's lost three straight and four of five and someone will probably talk about his alleged great jab. BLH will have live coverage.

UniMas, Midnight EST, Saul Rodriguez vs Antonio Capulin, Alex Saucedo vs TBA.
