It’s a minor week for boxing, but a good card on Saturday.

Friday, July 2

Fightzone (UK), TBA, A Boxing Event. This is another Sheffield Arena Car Park show from Fightzone. It had a main event before but now it doesn’t. Currently it has three fights, one with Jack Massey, one with Rhys Edwards, one with Hannah Baggely (debuting) listed on BoxRec. They do not have opponents.

Saturday, July 3

SHO, 9:00 pm ET, Chris Colbert vs Tugstsogt Nyambayar, Michel Rivera vs Jon Fernandez, Richardson Hitchins vs Darwin Price. Yuriorkis Gamboa suffering an injury put Nyambayar into this fight, and it works out better for everyone except maybe Colbert, and also Gamboa, I guess, in that he doesn’t get to have a payday. Colbert-King Tug might be a really, really good fight, and it’s a chance for Colbert to really prove himself against someone we know can go in the ring and isn’t past his prime or never going to have a prime. The other two fights are very solid Showtime undercard matchups, you know the type by now. Good show, when even a week ago we didn’t expect much. Bad Left Hook will have live coverage.
