Tuesday, June 4

DAZN, 11:00 am ET, Golovkin-Rolls public workout. Some fellas will shadowbox, hit pads, some might even put a tennis ball on their hat and punch it. BLH will have live coverage if BLH remembers.

Wednesday, June 5

DAZN, 11:30 am ET, Golovkin-Rolls press conference. GGG and Steve Rolls and the rest of the gang will talk up Saturday’s fights. BLH will have live coverage.

Thursday, June 6

ESPN+, 4:00 pm ET, Valdez-Sanchez press conference. The presser for Top Rank’s Saturday night card. BLH will have live coverage.

Friday, June 7

DAZN, 3:00 pm ET, Golovkin-Rolls weigh-in. The people on the card look to make weight. Will they? We’ll see! BLH will have live coverage.

ESPN+, 6:00 pm ET, Valdez-Sanchez weigh-in. More folks try to make weight! BLH will have live coverage.

FITE, 8:00 pm ET, Zab Judah vs Cletus Seldin. Well, I hoped it would find some sort of outlet, but I was thinking more, y’know, Facebook or something. But instead we’ve got a Fite PPV for a reasonable enough $15 price. So it’s available if you want to see Judah-Seldin, which I reckon might be a fun fight. James “Buddy” McGirt Jr is also on the show against David Papot, and several prospects will see action. And you know we’ll be here. BLH will have live coverage.

Saturday, June 8

BoxNation (UK), Noon ET, Kevin Lerena vs Vasil Ducar. Lerena is a top 10-ish cruiserweight, a 27-year-old South African who hasn’t lost in five years. Ducar is a 29-year-old Czech fighter whose only blemish is a 2018 draw, but it wasn’t exactly a high-level fight, either. Ducar has some MMA and K-1 experience. We’ll have live coverage if possible. BLH may have live coverage.

DAZN, 7:00 pm ET, Gennadiy Golovkin vs Steve Rolls. Main card starts at 9:00 pm ET. GGG is back with new trainer Johnathon Banks for his first fight since last September’s rematch loss to Canelo Alvarez. Steve Rolls is ... a man. Unbeaten, 35-year-old Canadian. Was on nobody’s radar. The fight is meant to be a showcase, and will be held at a 164-pound catchweight. The undercard has nothing to get super excited about, either, but it’ll have some prospects in action. BLH will have live coverage.

ESPN+, 7:30 pm ET, Valdez-Sanchez prelims. The usual stuff, some prospects in action, Michael Seals vs Christopher Brooker. BLH will have live coverage.

ESPN, 10:00 pm ET, Oscar Valdez vs Jason Sanchez. Well, it’s, uh, another one. I mean, when we heard Valdez would be back on this date, after GGG-Rolls was announced, it was, like, “Hey, cool, an alternative.” But then it was going to be Erick Ituarte, except someone forgot to grease the wheels and get Ituarte ranked by the WBO. So instead it’s Jason Sanchez. Look I’d be more up for complaining but I just saw Andy Ruiz Jr beat Anthony Joshua so what the hell do I know? And Valdez, like GGG, is generally worth watching just because he’s entertaining. Lightweight prospect Gabriel Flores Jr will be in the co-feature. BLH will have live coverage.
