NBC, 8:30 p.m. ET, Andrzej Fonfara vs Joe Smith Jr, Juan Carlos Payano vs Rau'shee Warren, Erickson Lubin vs Daniel Sandoval. Here it is! Your big card of the week! Andrzej Fonfara against Joe Smith Jr in the main event of a PBC on NBC show. The real draw here, for most of us, anyway, is the rematch between Juan Carlos Payano and Rau’shee Warren for Payano’s WBA flyweight title. I’m psyched that PBC is making room for a flyweight like Warren on a NBC card. Their first fight was on Bounce TV last August. As for the main event, Smith is unproven but hasn't lost in six years, and, well, it wasn't too long ago that Fonfara was "unproven" going into bigger fights, too. So we’ll see. Lubin is a top prospect at 154. This show also has a fight between undefeated middleweight prospects Hugo Centeno Jr and Maciej Sulecki, which is not being televised. BLH will have live coverage.

beIN Sports Español, 11:00 p.m. ET, Anabel Ortiz vs Jolene Blackshear, Carlos Ocampo vs Ramses Agaton, Jose Uzcategui vs TBA.
