FS1, 9:00 pm EST, Julian Williams vs Luciano Cuello, Moises Flores vs Luis Cusolito. Another solid-looking PBC on FS1 card, with Williams, an emerging 154-pound contender, taking on veteran Cuello, a respectable fighter who shouldn't beat Williams if "J-Rock" is going to be a serious player. Cuello's three losses have come to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, Canelo Alvarez, and Willie Nelson. Flores-Cusolito is for an interim WBA belt at 122, which isn't really necessary given that they have a "super world" title held by Guillermo Rigondeaux and a "world" title held by Scott Quigg, but you know how it works by now. BLH will have live coverage.

WOWOW (Japan), TBA, Shinsuke Yamanaka vs Anselmo Moreno. It doesn't appear as though WOWOW has live coverage of this fight, but they do have the TV rights. If I can find something that changes that, I'll update this, and we'll have live coverage if possible. This is a very good matchup between the world's top bantamweight and a guy in Moreno who is never easy to beat.

BoxNation (UK), 2:00 pm EST, Fedor Chudinov vs Frank Buglioni, Ryan Walsh vs Samir Mouneimne, Lewis Pettitt vs Bobby Jenkinson, Bradley Skeete vs Mark Thompson, Ahmet Patterson vs Danny Butler. Despite the poster's tag line, this is not a Friday night card. Chudinov is a guy who is making a real mark at 168. Buglioni is a popular fighter who probably isn't going to get any higher than domestic level at best, and this is, on paper at least, a way to cash out at least one world title fight in his career before he loses support. For comparison, Chudinov handily beat Felix Sturm and Buglioni lost to Sergey Khomitsky and drew Lee Markham. BLH will have coverage.

NBC, 8:30 pm EST, Deontay Wilder vs Johann Duhaupas, Dominic Breazeale vs Fred Kassi. Well, it is, as they all say, what it is. Wilder, America's heavyweight hope and the current WBC titleholder, is being rebuilt to a mainstream audience after an often rocky building period with serious boxing fans, which saw him take a lot of criticism for facing guys who were no threat to him. Duhaupas doesn't figure to be, either. Breazeale-Kassi is an interesting fight, as Breazeale is on the way up but has some notable flaws, and Kassi is coming off of a draw with Chris Arreola. Anyway, it's a better matchup than the canceled Figueroa-DeMarco fight figured to be. BLH will have live coverage.

UniMas, 11:00 pm EST, Andy Ruiz Jr vs Devin Vargas, Esquiva Falcao vs Zoltan Papp, Danny Valdivia vs Jeremy Ramos.

beIN Sports Español, 11:00 pm EST, Juan Francisco Estrada vs Tyson Marquez.

Sunday, September 27

TBS (Japan), 6:00 am EST, Kazuto Ioka vs Roberto Domingo Sosa, Katsunari Takayama vs Ryuji Hara. This is a double world title card, with Ioka defending the WBA flyweight belt and Takayama the IBF strawweight title. If possible, we'll have live coverage, but Japanese streams can be tough to find.
