FS1, 10:00 pm ET, Miguel Flores vs Dat Nguyen. Flores is an decent young prospect, doesn’t really stand out from the pack at 130, but he’s got some talent. Nguyen has been around a bit, you’ve seen him on Friday Night Fights, and this is about the level for him, prospect checker.

BoxNation (UK), 2:00 pm ET, Thomas Essomba vs Jay Harris, Boy Jones Jr vs Craig Poxton. Essomba vs Harris is for the Commonwealth super flyweight title. It’s not exactly a strong domestic/Commonwealth division, but it’s for that title, for what that’s worth.
PPV / PPV (CAN), 9:00 pm ET, Lucian Bute vs Eleider Alvarez. This “shouldn’t” be on pay-per-view, but you also “shouldn’t” expect any network to pay for it, really, because neither guy has a lot of name value in the United States, so your option is to buy it or not. That’s why it’s on pay-per-view. You have the option now. Since you’re unlikely to take it at $39.99 HD ($29.99 SD, like anyone watches SD in 2017), just know that we will be here with live coverage for you. BLH will have live coverage.
Telemundo, 11:35 pm ET, Ricardo Rodriguez vs Carlos Narvaez, Teofimo Lopez vs TBA, Antonio Vargas vs TBA. A couple of good young prospects in action in Lopez and Vargas, both 2016 Olympians.

Sky Sports (UK) / Televisa (MEX), 3:00 pm ET, Gavin McDonnell vs Rey Vargas, Luke Campbell vs Jairo Lopez, Tommy Coyle vs Kofi Yates. An OK card. McDonnell-Vargas is for the vacant WBC super bantamweight title, and both are unbeaten and can fight, so there’s a reason to watch. BLH will have live coverage.
FOX / Sky Sports (UK), 8:00 pm ET, Deontay Wilder vs Gerald Washington, Tony Harrison vs Jarrett Hurd. The fight to tune in to see here is Harrison-Hurd for the IBF junior middleweight title. Washington figures to be grossly overmatched against Wilder, and the fight won’t be expected to last long. But Washington will come to fight, at any rate, and Wilder had to fight someone. This isn’t really any step down from Andrzej Wawrzyk, either. BLH will have live coverage.
TyC Sports (ARG), 10:00 pm ET, Walter Gabriel Sequeira vs Elio Heraldo Trosch.
