Tuesday, May 2

ESPN+, Noon ET, “Top Rank Boxing Press Conference.” It’s listed there! No details.

FITE, 8:00 pm ET, Country Box: Where Music Meets Boxing. They’re back! Listen, they’re giving this a real go, and also, this one’s free! No PPV, no FITE+, and it appears they’re bringing in a comedian as well as a musical performer.

Wednesday, May 3

DAZN and Social Media, 4:00 pm ET, Canelo vs Ryder press conference. Being entirely honest, I just don’t expect any real fight week interest in this one, but we’ll have the quotes and video and stuff as soon as things are over. No live post, though.

ProBox TV, 8:00 pm ET, Fernando Molina vs Kevin Piedrahita. ProBox is back again! John won’t be here this week, though, as he has other business. I won’t be here because, well. I mean. Look. But John is still going to be doing ProBox coverage going forward, this is just a week where life is in the way.

Thursday, May 4

DAZN and Social Media, 4:00 pm ET, Canelo vs Ryder undercard press conference.

Friday, May 5

ESPN+, 2:30 pm ET, Mauro Forte vs Francesco Grandelli.

DAZN and Social Media, 4:00 pm ET, Canelo vs Ryder weigh-in. We will have a live post for this, since the weigh-in actually affects the fights happening or not or any potential wrinkles and whatnot. Bad Left Hook will have live coverage.

Saturday, May 6

FITE+, 1:00 pm ET, Joshua Buatsi vs Pawel Stepien. FITE+ do have the show in the U.S., it’s on Sky Sports in the United Kingdom. It’s Buatsi’s return to Sky and Boxxer debut after splitting with Matchroom. Lauren Price, Ben Whittaker, and more are also in action.

DAZN and Social Media, 6:00 pm ET, Canelo vs Ryder prelims. Some prospects, as usual. Honestly, not even as strong as the average “Before the Bell” show from Matchroom, just because it’s in Mexico and would involve a lot of travel expenses to put the normal rotation of fighters on this portion. But we’ll be around, and honestly, when are the prelims ever good? Maybe there will be some action. Bad Left Hook will have live coverage.

DAZN PPV, 7:00 pm ET, Canelo Alvarez vs John Ryder. Note the earlier than normal start time for the PPV here. Main event walks are expected around 10 pm ET, so a lot earlier than usual. Is it the biggest Canelo fight? No. Is it the best Canelo matchup? Again, no. Why lie? If you’re reading this site you’re probably smart enough to get what this is and what it isn’t. Canelo returns to Mexico for his first fight in his home country since he smoked Kermit Cintron in Nov. 2011, and for the fans in Mexico, this is a huge event, because stars like Canelo just don’t fight in the country once they’re this big. It just doesn’t happen anymore. On that end of things, this is a special event. And it’s a huge fight for Ryder, who can be counted on to bring his best effort, and I’m guessing Canelo wants to look great back home. Julio Cesar Martinez vs Ronal Batista, Gabriel Gollaz Valenzuela vs Stevie Spark (could be a good one), and a comebacking Oleksandr Gvozdyk vs Ricards Bolotniks round out the PPV card. The fight is available through DAZN PPV, obviously, and also your normal cable/satellite options, and if you want a streaming option that is not DAZN, will have the fight, too. Bad Left Hook will have live coverage.
