Tuesday, July 14

ESPN, 9:00 pm ET, Jamel Herring vs Jonathan Oquendo, Mikaela Mayer vs Helen Joseph. Herring has pulled out of this show as of Monday afternoon, so that fight’s off. But the show goes on! Mayer is an emerging top fighter and already a legit title threat at 130 on the women’s side. Clay Collard will also be back on this show! BLH will have live coverage.

Thursday, July 16

ESPN, 8:00 pm ET, Miguel Marriaga vs Mark John Yap, Felix Verdejo vs Will Madera. A short-notice doubleheader with Marriaga and Verdejo in what should be winnable fights, but you never know. Marriaga-Yap is what the ESPN schedule has listed, so that’s what we’re going with. Verdejo-Madera is definitely official, and Madera could be a bit tricky if Verdejo is off his game at all. BLH will have live coverage.

Saturday, July 18

ESPN+, 3:00 pm ET, Agit Kabayel vs Evgenios Lazaridis. Hey! A European card! Kabayel is a 27-year-old German heavyweight who still holds the European title, but that’s not on the line here. He won it in 2017 and has made three successful defenses, including a majority decision win over Derek Chisora that same year. Lazaridis is 32, based in Germany, originally from Greece. Look, it ain’t marquee, but it’s a show, Kabayel is trying to make waves on the world stage soon, and yeah we’ll be here. BLH will have live coverage.
