Friday, Dec. 7

TG4 (IRE), 3:30 pm ET, Ray Moylette vs Christian Uruzqueta, Spike O’Sullivan vs Gabor Gorbics.

Telemundo, 11:35 pm ET, Antonio Moran vs Edson Ramirez.

Saturday, Dec. 8

DAZN / Sky Sports (UK), 2:00 pm ET, Kell Brook vs Michael Zerafa. Brook returns in what is hoped to be a final tune-up before a long awaited showdown with Amir Khan sometime in the first quarter of 2019. Brook should win and win handily, but that’s why they fight the fights. BLH will have live coverage.

ESPN, 9:00 pm ET, Vasiliy Lomachenko vs Jose Pedraza, Isaac Dogboe vs Emanuel Navarrete, Teofimo Lopez vs Mason Menard. Lomachenko and Pedraza are unifying two titles at 135 pounds, while Dogboe is defending his 122-pound title in the co-feature. Lopez is a good prospect and Menard a perfectly nice test for him at this stage. BLH will have live coverage.

HBO / Azteca (MEX), 10:20 pm ET, Cecilia Braekhus vs Aleksandra Magdziak-Lopes, Juan Francisco Estrada vs Vincent Mendez, Claressa Shields vs Femke Hermans. This is how boxing ends on HBO. Not with a bang, but with a whimper — with due respect to the fighters, including a pair of current world champions in Braekhus and Shields, and a top super flyweight contender in Estrada. It’s a card they’ve barely promoted existing, just like their last few lame duck cards since the announcement was made that the network was getting out of the boxing game. But we’ll be here to say goodbye to a 45-year-old institution. BLH will have live coverage.

Televisa (MEX), 11:00 pm ET, Aaron Alameda vs Breilor Teran.
