Wednesday, March 15
FITE PPV, 3:00 am ET, Paul Fleming vs Charly Suarez.
Thursday, March 16
ESPN+, 7:00 pm ET, Jean Pascal vs Michael Eifert. This is an IBF eliminator at light heavyweight, which is kind of ridiculous but whatever. Pascal is 40 and has fought once in the last three-plus years, scraping past Meng Fanlong last May on ProBox TV. The inactivity owes mainly to his drug test failures. This will actually be Pascal’s first fight in Canada since his 2018 win over Steve Bosse, a former MMA fighter and minor league hockey enforcer. Eifert is a 25-year-old German who doesn’t really belong anywhere near a world title eliminator, but he will have youth on his side, and Pascal is also coming off of a bout with COVID, which can’t be totally discounted. The undercard isn’t much to get wild about, but we’ll be here. BLH will have live coverage.
UFC Fight Pass, 8:00 pm ET, Callum Walsh vs Wesley Tucker. Brother, it’s Hollywood Fight Night! In Boston. Walsh is a 5-0 Irish junior middleweight, Tucker is a guy from Toledo who’s lost four of his last five. There are some other decent prospects on the show, too, and also Danny O’Connor, who is 37 and hasn’t fought since 2018, is scheduled to return.
Friday, March 17
DAZN and Social Media, 9:00 am ET, Pattinson vs Jenkins weigh-in.
DAZN and Social Media, 4:00 pm ET, Zurdo vs Rosado weigh-in.
StarBoxing.TV, 7:00 pm ET, Oleh Dovhun vs Juan Centeno. Club fights, basically, but Dovhun might be someone. Star Boxing do have their own streams and streaming service, yes, and you can tune in for this one as a $9.99 PPV or for $14.97 with a three-month “gold subscription” where you get this and whatever else they have in the three month window, plus access to their archives. I’m not gonna for this one, but you might want to!
Saturday, March 18
ProBox TV, Noon ET, Jarrell Miller vs Lucas Browne. ProBox have picked this one up so we’ll just do what we did last Saturday and have an afternoon boxing chat bonanza. The show also features Soslan Asbarov vs Brandon Glanton and Jono Carroll vs Miguel Marriaga. BLH will have live coverage.
DAZN and Social Media, 12:45 pm ET, Pattinson vs Jenkins prelims.
DAZN, 3:00 pm ET, Cyrus Pattinson vs Chris Jenkins. Matchroom have sort of gotten away from this smaller domestic shows in the UK, with a lot of company business focused on their American efforts, and I think it’s good to see them getting a show like this in Newcastle. Pattinson is a good-looking welterweight, 5-0, and this is a nice step up for him at home against Jenkins, a scrappy veteran and former British and Commonwealth welterweight champion. Hopey Price, Solomon Dacres, Pat McCormack, and several others are set for action, split between the prelims and the main show undercard. BLH will have live coverage.
FITE PPV, 6:30 pm ET, Soirée de Combats 3 À Châteauguay.
DAZN and Social Media, 6:00 pm ET, Zurdo vs Rosado prelims.
DAZN, 8:00 pm ET, JoJo Diaz vs Mercito Gesta. The original Zurdo Ramirez vs Gabe Rosado main event is off with Zurdo missing weight by several lbs. The Diaz vs Gesta fight is now the main event, even though Diaz also missed weight. BLH will have live coverage.
FITE PPV, 9:00 pm ET, Vanessa Bradford vs Erika Hernandez.
