Tuesday, March 14

FS1, 9:00 pm ET, Sergiy Derevyanchenko vs Kemahl Russell, Jamontay Clark vs Gaku Takahashi, Ahmed Elbiali vs Jackson Junior. Derevyanchenko is a top prospect at 160 pounds, going into his 10th fight here. Russell is also an unbeaten prospect, 10 fights in himself, but isn’t considered on the same level as Derevyanchenko.

Friday, March 17

Bounce, 9:00 pm ET, Travis Kauffman vs Amir Mansour, Omar Douglas vs Edner Cherry. Kauffman-Mansour should be an entertaining heavyweight scrap if nothing else, and Douglas-Cherry is a solid matchup. Steve Cunningham is also set to fight on the card, but doesn’t have an opponent yet.

Saturday, March 18

HBO PPV, 9:00 pm ET, Gennady Golovkin vs Daniel Jacobs, Roman Gonzalez vs Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, Carlos Cuadras vs David Carmona, Ryan Martin vs Bryant Cruz. Here’s a big one, one I think we’re all looking forward to seeing. GGG and Jacobs both have power that can change a fight in one shot, and Jacobs may be the legit biggest threat to Golovkin at 160 pounds. The undercard is OK — if Gonzalez and Cuadras both win, they’re expected to fight again, as Cuadras is Gonzalez’s WBC mandatory. BLH will have live coverage.
