Thursday, Nov. 7
DAZN, 5:00 am ET, Naoya Inoue vs Nonito Donaire, Nordine Oubaali vs Takuma Inoue. The 118-pound World Boxing Super Series tournament finishes up in Japan, with destroyer Naoya Inoue facing the tournament’s odd Cinderella story, Nonito Donaire. Donaire got here via an injury to Ryan Burnett and a semifinal win over an under-qualified substitute opponent, and odds are against him, but he’s got that eraser left hook. Oubaali against Takuma Inoue is also a 118-pound title fight. BLH will have live coverage.
UFC Fight Pass, 10:00 pm ET, Alex Flores vs Mario Heredia. RJJ Boxing is back in Tucson. Flores hasn’t fought since last December when he was knocked out in three by Joseph Parker. Heredia is getting a fair amount of mileage out of edging past a mega-washed Sam Peter. BLH will have live coverage.
Saturday, Nov. 9
ESPN+, 3:00 pm ET, Michael McKinson vs Luis Alberto Veron, Chantelle Cameron vs Anahi Esther Sanchez, Liam Walsh vs Maxi Hughes. An MTK show from York Hall.
ESPN+, 6:30 pm ET, Herring vs Roach prelims. Janibek Alimkhanuly, Esquiva Falcao, Gabriel Flores Jr, and Amir Imam, among others, will be featured on the prelims. And Robeisy Ramirez will give pro boxing a second shot in a much more low-key return after losing his pro debut.
DAZN, 7:00 pm ET, KSI vs Logan Paul, Billy Joe Saunders vs Marcelo Esteban Coceres, Devin Haney vs Alfredo Santiago. Well, it’s here. I mean we watched Tyson Fury do WWE last week, so whatever. KSI and Logan Paul are fighting a six-rounder at cruiserweight and it’s not going to be good boxing, obviously, but we’ll see if it’s at least a fun circus. Billy Joe Saunders will be defending his 168-pound title against an opponent who would be considered a fringe contender at best. Haney will defend his 135-pound title against a fellow prospect. (Listen, if Haney wants to stop being called a prospect, he has to stop fighting the type of opponents prospects fight.) Ronny Rios will face Hugo Berrio on the main card, too. The rest of the show is rounded out with a bunch of prospects. BLH will have live coverage.
ESPN+, 10:00 pm ET, Jamel Herring vs Lamont Roach Jr, Kubrat Pulev vs Rydell Booker. Herring defends his 130-pound belt in the main event against his mandatory challenger, and Pulev returns in the co-feature in a stay-busy fight against Booker. BLH will have live coverage.
