Friday, June 10

BoxNation (UK), 2:00 p.m. ET, Enzo Maccarinelli vs Dmytro Kucher. This is for the vacant European cruiserweight title. Maccarinelli has won three straight, including his sad knockout of Roy Jones Jr in December, which has given his career a minor boost again. But almost every time in the last eight years that he's faced someone decent, he's been stopped. His best win over that time is a rematch win over Ovill McKenzie in 2013. Kucher is no superstar, but he can punch and has never been stopped. The rest of the card is prospects in non-tests. BLH will have live coverage.

CBS Sports Network, 11:00 p.m. ET, Demond Brock vs Jesus Gutierrez, Alexander Flores vs Razvan Cojanu. Demond Brock is a 35-year-old from Louisiana with a record of 11-3-1 (4 KO), but he's apparently the A-side main event here. Gutierrez is 14-0-1 (4 KO). This is not exactly a meeting of big prospects. The heavyweight co-feature is probably a somewhat more relevant fight.

Saturday, June 11

SHO Extreme, 7:00 p.m. ET, Willie Monroe Jr vs John Thompson, Andrey Fedosov vs Mario Heredia. The SHO Extreme prelims are BACK! with two fights before the Showtime tripleheader. Monroe and Thompson are both coming off of stoppage losses, Monroe to Gennady Golovkin and Thompson to Liam Smith. Fedosov is a mid-tier heavyweight who hasn't fought in a year, since winning Boxcino. He's fighting a guy who sometimes weighs 230 and sometimes weighs 290. BLH will have live coverage.

SHO, 9:00 p.m. ET, Ruslan Provodnikov vs John Molina Jr, Demetrius Andrade vs Willie Nelson, Dejan Zlaticanin vs Franklin Mamani. Provodnikov-Molina could be all action, or it could be a wipeout. We'll have to see. Andrade-Nelson is a good matchup at 154, though, and Zlaticanin-Mamani is for an interim title at 135. BLH will have live coverage.

HBO / BoxNation (UK), 10:00 p.m. ET, Rocky Martinez vs Vasyl Lomachenko, Felix Verdejo vs Juan Jose Martinez. Lomachenko moves up to 130 pounds to face Rocky Martinez for the WBO title. Last year, Martinez beat and drew with Orlando Salido in two fights, and Salido is, of course, the only fighter so far to beat Lomachenko. This is a good step back up in competition for Lomachenko, too, after three fights against guys who posed zero threat to him. Verdejo is in another showcase fight here, with the hope that he'll look good. BLH will have live coverage.

TyC Sports (ARG), 10:00 p.m. ET, Omar Narvaez vs Breilor Teran. Former flyweight and super flyweight titleholder Narvaez returns at home in a bantamweight bout. He fought at bantamweight once before, gleefully taking a Top Rank check to stink out the joint against Nonito Donaire a few years back. He's in with a club fighter from Venezuela here, who has a record just over .500 at 15-13-1.

Televisa (MEX), 11:00 p.m. ET, Rey Vargas vs Alexis Boureima Kabore, Eduardo Hernandez vs Warren Mambuanag, Juan Hernandez vs Omar Nino. Vargas-Kabore is some manner of WBC super bantamweight eliminator. Look! Omar Nino is still fighting! Go figure.

Bounce TV, 9:00 p.m. ET, Phil Lo Greco vs Joseph Elegele, Steve Lovett vs Craig Baker. PBC's Bounce series is sorta supposed to be their prospect show, but the main event here is a couple of 31-year-old veterans. Still, it could be a decent enough fight from an entertainment standpoint. Lovett-Baker is a prospect matchup at 175. Lovett is unbeaten, and Baker's only loss was a really fun slugfest with Edwin Rodriguez last May.
