Scott’s still doing his own thing, so I figured I’d put together my own bootleg schedule. Save the link; this’ll be a collector’s item someday.
Tuesday, April 4
Fox Sports 1, 9:00 PM ET, Edner Cherry vs. Omar Douglas, Frank De Alba vs. Ryan Kielczweski. Solid Toe-to-Toe Tuesday main event pitting a gritty veteran in Cherry with a solid young fighter in Douglas. Cherry suffered a controversial decision loss to Jose Pedraza in 2015 and got a controversial decision win over Haskell Rhodes in his sole 2016 effort, while Douglas dropped Javier Fortuna early but ultimately lost a decision in his last fight.
Saturday, April 8
BT Sport (UK), 12:30 PM ET, Terry Flanagan vs. Petr Petrov, Liam Smith vs. Liam Williams, Zolani Tete vs. Arthur Villanueva. Fairly stacked card from Manchester, featuring Terry Flanagan in his first tough defense in some time and the Liams fighting for an interim title. It’ll also see the professional debuts of Olympic gold medalist Nicola Adams and colossal heavyweight youngster Daniel Dubois.
HBO, 8:00 PM ET, Vasyl Lomachenko vs. Jason Sosa, Oleksandr Usyk vs. Michael Hunter, Oleksandr Gvozdyk vs. Yunieski Gonzalez. The weekend’s main attraction brings the Ukrainian Olympic squad back together. Sosa is a legitimate champion with a good punch, for all the good that will do him against a monster like Lomachenko, while Gonzalez figures to be a solid foe for Gvozdyk. Usyk vs. Hunter is a decent, 3/5 matchup. The undercard features a bevy of undefeated fighters, including Egidijus Kavaliauskas.
