SHO, 9:00 pm ET, Adrien Broner vs Mikey Garcia, Jermall Charlo vs Jorge Heiland. Broner-Garcia is a very intriguing matchup for some, while others see it as a potential wipeout win for the talented and dedicated Garcia. There is also some concern about Broner actually making 140 pounds, with some stiff financial penalties if he doesn’t. However you see the fight turning out, it’s one to talk about — this is, in a sense, a last chance for Broner to win a fight on this level and live up to that old hyped potential. For Garcia, it’s a chance to beat a big name at a new weight and show just how good he is. BLH will have live coverage.
CBS Sports Network / Televisa (MEX), 10:00 pm ET, Cristian Mijares vs Rafael Hernandez. Former super flyweight titleholder Mijares is still out there, now fighting at 130 pounds, winner of seven straight since a super bantamweight title fight loss to Leo Santa Cruz in 2014.
Sunday, July 30
ESPN2, 12:00 am ET, Sadam Ali vs Johan Perez. That’s Midnight ET, so, you know, Saturday night, but I can’t bring myself to erroneously list Midnight ET as being on Saturday. I just can’t do it. Anyway, Ali’s won a couple since losing to Jessie Vargas, but has sort of fallen off the radar in that time, too. This is a should-win for him. Eddie Gomez, Patrick Teixeira, and Daquan Arnett are scheduled for the card, too.
FS1, 7:00 pm ET, Victor Ortiz vs Saul Corral, Justin DeLoach vs Fernando Guerrero. Corral has grown into the role of knockaround guy, building up a respectable-ish record beating nobodies before taking L’s when in against real opposition. The last three to beat him were Mike Alvarado, Sadam Ali, and Josesito Lopez, both by decision. Corral is tough and game, but is always overmatched against, well, people who know what they’re doing. Barring an injury or a shock finish, Ortiz will win, as he did against Manuel Perez and Gilberto Sanchez Leon in 2014-15, but Victor hasn’t beaten a credible foe since topping Andre Berto over six years ago, either.
