Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Showtime Sports has announced dates for seven major fights in the coming months, including a welterweight title unification between Danny Garcia and Keith Thurman, the rematch between Carl Frampton and Leo Santa Cruz, the long-awaited Badou Jack vs James DeGale fight, and more.

Here’s a look at the lineup that SHO is boasting:

December 10
Jesus Cuellar vs Abner Mares
Jermall Charlo vs Julian Williams

January 14
Badou Jack vs James DeGale

January 28
Carl Frampton vs Leo Santa Cruz II
Dejan Zlaticanin vs Mikey Garcia

February 11
Adrien Broner vs Adrian Granados

March 4
Danny Garcia vs Keith Thurman

It’s a very impressive lineup overall, with two title unification fights (Garcia-Thurman, Jack-DeGale), a marquee rematch (Frampton-Santa Cruz), three more world title fights (Cuellar-Mares, Charlo-Williams, Zlaticanin-Garcia), and my personal favorite fight here, the real sleeper, Adrien Broner vs Adrian Granados.

All of these fights will air on Showtime, except for, possibly, Garcia-Thurman, which may air on CBS.
