FS1, 8:00 pm ET, Frank Martin vs Jerry Perez, Marcus Browne vs Denis Grachev. PBC principally chucked this card into existence by all however pretending it’s not occurring, identical as we’ve seen them do with different FS1 playing cards. They’re clearly not very pleased with what they’re providing to the purpose they don’t even appear to need folks to observe. Martin-Perez is a matchup of unbeaten however unknown lightweights. Browne-Grachev is an abomination of a matchup. Since PBC appear so disinterested in whether or not anybody pays consideration to those reveals, I may not. I’ll determine on the day of the fights. BLH might have reside protection.
NBCSN and Twitch, 9:00 pm ET, Jermaine Franklin vs Stephan Shaw, Jelena Mrdjenovich vs Erika Cruz Hernandez. Ring Metropolis USA is again, this time from West Level, NY, for what ought to be a singular ambiance. Being trustworthy, I’m not close to as excessive on this card as I’ve been on different Ring Metropolis reveals, however so far as matchup, the principle occasion continues to be what the sequence promised: Fighters matched powerful. Franklin and Shaw are each American heavyweight hopefuls, no matter meaning to you. Mrdjenovich is defending her featherweight belt and may very well be trying to arrange unification with Amanda Serrano. BLH can have reside protection.

BT Sport (UK), 1:00 pm ET, Denzel Bentley vs Felix Money, Callum Johnson vs Emil Markic. As soon as once more doesn’t look there will probably be U.S. protection for this one, not on the ESPN+ schedule as of now and no FITE PPV possibility or something. Bentley-Money is a good home matchup at 160 for the British and Commonwealth titles, and Johnson is getting again in motion at 175, the place he’s a contender. Anthony Yarde can also be in motion.

Diaz is an honest fighter, however this isn’t essentially the most unimaginable world title matchup by any means. Berlanga appears to maintain his first spherical KO streak operating — or not, in some unspecified time in the future it’s going to be extra useful long run to truly get some rounds in. Nicholson is a veteran who’s been round however is lots hurt-able and has been stopped twice. Odds would appear respectable Berlanga extends the run. BLH can have reside protection.
