Saturday, March 4
Sky Box Office (UK), 2:00 pm ET, David Haye vs Tony Bellew, Ohara Davies vs Derry Mathews, Sam Eggington vs Paulie Malignaggi. The show will also feature Katie Taylor’s return, plus Lee Selby in non-title action. Haye-Bellew is a grudge match like only David Haye much knows how to promote anymore. Davies-Mathews and Eggington-Malignaggi are what they are, halfway decent matchups for the level involved. BLH will have live coverage.
CBS, 9:00 pm ET, Keith Thurman vs Danny Garcia, Erickson Lubin vs Jorge Cota, Andrzej Fonfara vs Chad Dawson. Thurman-Garcia is a pay-per-view quality fight on network TV, which is sort of the idea people had back when PBC was all, “Boxing is BACK on network television!” Lubin is a terrific prospect at 154 you’ve surely seen a few times by now. Fonfara-Dawson is a meeting of veterans who badly need a credible win at the moment, and given the connections they have, a win could lead to a title shot.
