FOX Sports (AUS), 3:00 am ET, Anthony Mundine vs Tommy Browne. Mundine fights again, and if he wins, then in theory is in the mix for a domestic superfight with Jeff Horn. So this kinda sorta maybe matters a little.

SHO YouTube, 7:00 pm ET, Marcus Browne vs Francy Ntetu, Adam Kownacki vs Iago Kiladze. Two meant-to-be-showcase matches for Browne and Kownacki. It appears the days of SHO Extreme fights are over, and we’re moving to YouTube streams, which isn’t a bad thing. The more progressive you can be — and YT allows anyone to watch, not just SHO subscribers — the better, IMO. BLH will have live coverage.
SHO, 9:00 pm ET, Errol Spence Jr vs Lamont Peterson, Robert Easter Jr vs Javier Fortuna. Spence’s first defense of the IBF welterweight title he won last May from Kell Brook. It’s a bit longer a break than anyone would really liked to have seen, but it is what it is. Peterson is a credible challenger, but the clear underdog. Easter-Fortuna is for Easter’s 135-pound title, Fortuna a former titleholder at 130 and a guy who can fight. BLH will have live coverage.
TyC Sports (ARG), 10:00 pm ET, Luis Emanuel Cusolito vs Sergio Ariel Estrela, Cesar Miguel Barrionuevo vs Adrian Luciano Veron.
beIN Sports Español / Azteca (MEX), 11:30 pm ET, Emanuel Navarrete vs Glenn Porras.
