Friday, May 6

Estrella TV, 11:00 pm EDT, Pablo Cesar Cano vs Alan Sanchez, Marvin Quintero vs Petr Petrov. Both of these are solid matchups for what they are, mid-level fights at lightweight and welterweight. Petrov won Boxcino in 2014, then had one fight last year (a win over Gamaliel Diaz), and has otherwise sat around waiting. Sanchez has more career momentum than Cano and has won 12 of his last 13 fights. BLH will have live coverage.

Saturday, May 7

AWE / Sky Sports 2 (UK), 2:30 pm EDT, Anthony Crolla vs Ismael Barroso. This is Crolla's first defense of the WBA lightweight title, and Barroso is certainly a dangerous challenger, a power puncher who wiped out Kevin Mitchell in five rounds his last time out. It's a good matchup. BLH will have live coverage.

SAT1 (DEU), 4:50 pm EDT, Kubrat Pulev vs Dereck Chisora. This is for the vacant European title and is also being billed as an IBF eliminator, so the winner will be in line for Anthony Joshua later this year. Chisora's won five straight but against lousy competition. Pulev's won two straight, also against lousy competition. BLH will have live coverage.

HBO PPV / BoxNation (UK), 9:00 pm EDT, Canelo Alvarez vs Amir Khan, David Lemieux vs Glen Tapia, Mauricio Herrera vs Frankie Gomez, Patrick Teixeira vs Curtis Stevens. The big one. The one that Oscar De La Hoya expects to have about 1.6 million pay-per-view buys. The weirdest, most unexpected major fight matchup in quite a long time. A decent undercard that should feature a couple of knockouts and also has a great prospect vs veteran matchup with Gomez and Herrera. I'm excited because it's weird. BLH will have live coverage.
