Wilder vs Stiverne II, more: Boxing fight times and TV schedule for November 2-4

Deontay Wilder returns in the headline fight of the week.

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

Thursday, November 2

ESPN2, 11:00 pm ET, Jesus Soto Karass vs Juan Carlos Abreu. Soto Karass hasn’t won a fight since 2013 (0-4-1 since), but Golden Boy is running him back out on ESPN airwaves after an August majority decision loss to Mauricio Herrera. Abreu is a Dominican who has lost two of three.

Friday, November 3

Telemundo, 11:35 pm ET, Sammy Valentin vs Alejandro Barboza.

Saturday, November 4

MDR (GER), 5:30 pm ET, Dmitry Bivol vs Trent Broadhurst, Jamie McDonnell vs Liborio Solis II. Also on the card: Agit Kabayel faces Dereck Chisora, and Scott Quigg takes on Oleg Yefimovych. McDonnell-Solis is an overdue rematch of a controversial decision, while Bivol defends his WBA “world” title against Broadhurst, a fringe contender.

SHO, 9:00 pm ET, Deontay Wilder vs Bermane Stiverne II, Shawn Porter vs Adrian Granados, Sergey Lipinets vs Akihiro Kondo. A Showtime tripleheader, with Wilder taking care of a mandatory against Stiverne, which was going to happen sooner or later, so ultimately, might as well be now, especially given the situation with Luis Ortiz. Porter-Granados should be a good scrap, and Lipinets-Kondo is for a vacant 140 pound title. BLH will have live coverage.

Azteca (MEX), 11:00 pm ET, Luis Nery vs Arthur Villanueva. Nery is coming off of a huge win over Shinsuke Yamanaka, but he failed a drug test. He’s still officially the WBC bantamweight champion, but this is a non-title fight.

Televisa (MEX), 11:30 pm ET, Jhonny Gonzalez vs Irving Berry, Lourdes Juarez vs Diana Laura Fernandez. A pretty typical Gonzalez stay-busy fight. Juarez-Fernandez is for a minor WBC flyweight title.
