ESPN+, 2:00 pm ET, Jay Harris vs Ricardo Sandoval, Paul Butler vs Joseph Agbeko. This was initially set for Could 14, however bought postponed. It’s an IBF flyweight eliminator. Harris proved he’s actually no joke going a strong 12 with Julio Cesar Martinez, and he’ll be the favourite right here. Butler-Agbeko is a WBO eliminator at bantamweight. It’s that Agbeko, sure, now 44 years previous and nonetheless extremely ranked as a result of he’s overwhelmed a bunch of nobodies for the previous eight years since dropping to Guillermo Rigondeaux in a combat that stunk extra because of Agbeko than the Cuban, who normally will get blamed when his fights stink. Butler gained the IBF bantamweight title again in 2014 however by no means defended it, as an alternative transferring right down to 115 the place he misplaced a title combat to Zolani Tete in 2015. He additionally misplaced badly to Emmanuel Rodriguez in a 118 title combat in 2018, however like Agbeko has achieved a excessive rating by current and beating no one, constantly, since then. Who says crap fights can’t repay? Not the WBO! Unhealthy Left Hook can have stay protection.
ESPN+, 6:30 pm ET, Lomachenko vs Nakatani undercard.
DAZN, 7:00 pm ET, Julio Cesar Martinez vs Joel Cordova, Jose Argumedo vs Daniel Matellon. The higher combat right here is the 108 lb co-feature, and it’s form of a wild card. Could be good and significant, possibly not, we’ll see how the fighters look. Good to have Martinez defending his WBC flyweight belt, although the opponent isn’t somebody to get excited over, to be good about it. However who is aware of? Little man weights may be loopy. Who knew a rattling factor about Martinez earlier than he smoked Andrew Selby and was smoking Charlie Edwards? In fact he wasn’t 12-4 going into these, both, which Cordova is right here. In an excellent world we’d have protection for this, however being sincere it’s simply not that large of a combat the least bit apart from there being a world title on the road, and it could require stretching our assets fairly skinny.
PPV, 9:00 pm ET, Gervonta Davis vs Mario Barrios, Erickson Lubin vs Jeison Rosario, Julian Williams vs Brian Mendoza, Batyr Akhmedov vs Argenis Mendez. The Showtime PPV takes place in Atlanta. I like the primary occasion and co-feature quite a bit, personally. Davis making an attempt his hand at 140 is fascinating if bizarre, and a few may understandably say avoiding harder fights at his higher weights, however we’ll see. Lubin-Rosario is an excellent combat at 154, winner needs to be in line to combat July’s Charlo-Castano winner later this yr if all of them need it to occur. Williams is making a comeback after being inactive for 17 months, Akhmedov-Mendez is a good matchup and a WBA eliminator at 140. Unhealthy Left Hook can have stay protection.
ESPN+, 10:00 pm ET, Vasiliy Lomachenko vs Masayoshi Nakatani, Rob Brant vs Janibek Alimkhanuly. This one’s an ESPN+ unique, so that you’ll must sign up in the event you’re somebody who has been simply watching predominant card parts that air on ESPN. This can be a strong return for Loma coming off of a loss to Teofimo Lopez. Nakatani can’t match Vasiliy for ability, pace, timing, foot work, and so forth. However he’s very tall at 135, which Loma may be very a lot not, and he’s powerful as hell and may be relentless in his assaults. If Lomachenko has any lingering shoulder points or Nakatani simply has the appropriate plan of assault, this may very well be a harder evening than Loma expects. Brant-Alimkhanuly is a strong co-feature. Unhealthy Left Hook can have stay protection.
FOX, 8:00 pm ET, David Morrell vs Mario Cazares. Premier Boxing Champions affords up one other mega-mid card for his or her FOX deal, as Cuba’s Morrell takes on Mario Cazares, the man who gained when Julio Cesar Chavez Jr stop final September in Tijuana, inciting the wrath of Clan Chavez, livid that Cazares had not merely performed alongside. Cazares is 30 years previous and wasn’t meant to beat Chavez, however PBC are making the most of his shred of relevance and Cazares is cashing it in for a predominant occasion on FOX, and why shouldn’t he? Cruiserweight Efetobor Apochi will face Brandon Glanton, and junior welterweight Omar Juarez faces All Rivera. Each of these fights could be higher than the primary occasion. Anyway, I do take pleasure in a pleasant Sunday night card, so we’ll be right here. Unhealthy Left Hook can have stay protection.
