Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

The dates for Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN in the first half of 2018 are official, though none of the nights have officially announced fights just yet.

The series will return on February 22, with all listed dates airing on ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes, except for March 24, which will air on ESPN and ESPN Deportes.

From ESPN, the show will have dates on February 22, March 9, March 22, March 24, March 31, April 13, April 19, May 4, May 17, and June 8, which makes for a total of 10 cards.

The one that sticks out immediately is May 4, which is a Friday night, and the Friday before whatever the big Cinco de Mayo 2018 pay-per-view fight will be. It’s expected that we’ll see Canelo Alvarez rematch Gennady Golovkin that night, but even if it’s not Canelo-GGG II, it’ll most likely be Canelo in action against someone, in one of the bigger events of the year.
