Friday, Sept. 27
ESPN+, 3:00 pm ET, Daniel Dubois vs Ebenezer Tetteh, Nicola Adams vs Maria Salinas. Top heavyweight prospect Dubois is coming off of a really impressive smashing of Nathan Gorman on July 13, where he won the vacant British heavyweight title. Now he’ll look to pick up the vacant Commonwealth title against Ghana’s Tetteh, unbeaten but 31 and untested in that way where he could be dangerous. Dubois is a legit rising star and looks to have the goods, so this one’s worth tuning in for if you want to see a good young heavyweight. Two-time Olympic gold medalist Adams’ fight is for the WBO flyweight title against veteran Salinas. BLH will have live coverage.
Saturday, Sept. 28
FS1, 7:30 pm ET, Robert Guerrero vs Jerry Thomas, Joey Spencer vs Travis Gambardella. The pre-PPV portion of the Premier Boxing Champions show will give us the return of aging vet Guerrero and a fight with middleweight prospect Spencer, whom PBC is high on. BLH will have live coverage.
PPV, 9:00 pm ET, Errol Spence Jr vs Shawn Porter, Anthony Dirrell vs David Benavidez, Mario Barrios vs Batyr Akhmedov, Josesito Lopez vs John Molina Jr. As pay-per-views go in this era of the pay-per-view dying its death, this is about as “worth $75 for a single boxing show” as you’re going to get. I mean, I’ll give PBC that much. Spence is arguably the top welterweight in the world, and he tries to unify two belts against Porter in this main event. Dirrell-Benavidez is a legit matchup at 168 for a title, Barrios-Akhmedov is a meeting of unbeaten 140-pounders for a vacant WBA secondary title, and Lopez-Molina should be a good, gritty veteran fight at 147. BLH will have live coverage.
