Friday, April 8

BoxNation (UK), Noon EDT, Eduard Troyanovsky vs Cesar Cuenca. There's plenty more on this show from Moscow, but the main event rematch between Troyanovsky and Cuenca for the IBF 140-pound belt is the focus for us, the rest is just showcase matchups with a few prospects in action. Troyanovsky beat Cuenca in November by stoppage, the first loss of Cuenca's career, to win the belt. Cuenca is looking for revenge, but it's a tough ask. He's been stopped once by this guy, he's on the road, and he can't punch at all. BLH will have live coverage of the main event.

Saturday, April 9

HBO PPV, 9:00 pm EDT, Manny Pacquiao vs Timothy Bradley, Arthur Abraham vs Gilberto Ramirez, Oscar Valdez vs Evgeny Gradovich, Jose Ramirez vs Manuel Perez. The third Pacquiao-Bradley fight is also supposedly the final fight in the career of Manny Pacquiao, who is continuing to say that he will retire to go into a serious career in politics in the Philippines, and spend more time with his family. Whether or not that's really the case won't be known for a while, but this is a fight between two top welterweights, and the undercard is solid, with Abraham-Ramirez for a 168-pound belt and top prospects Valdez and Ramirez in action. BLH will have live coverage.

TyC Sports (ARG), 10:00 pm EDT, Cristian Nestor Romero vs Adrian Luciano Veron.

Televisa (MEX), 11:00 pm EDT, Tomas Rojas vs Prosper Ankah, Eduardo Hernandez vs Devis Perez.
