Fight Night Program – Week of June 15-21

Fighters Network

The weekend is approaching, and from Friday to Sunday it will be “fight-o-clock” somewhere in the world. Every Thursday, The Ring will bring you the most up-to-date information on the most relevant fights you need to see in this week-at-a-glance, one-stop enhanced fight schedule. A quick checklist for the cognoscenti, a useful nuts-and-bolts guide for the boxing neophyte is what we’re aiming at.

Here are this week’s most relevant fights:

Friday, June 16 – York Hall, London

Frazer Clarke vs. Mariusz Wach – heavyweight – 10 rounds

A big jump in quality of opponents for the unbeaten Clarke, who is only 6-0 but owns also a stellar amateur record. Poland’s Wach will be no waltz, but he will be the right opponent for Clarke to put his career in high gear.

Also on this card:

Caroline Dubois vs. Yanina del Carmen Lescano – women’s lightweight – 10 rounds

Aaron McKenna vs. Uisma Lima –  middleweight – 10 rounds

Viddal Riley vs. Anees Taj, rematch –  cruiserweight – 8 rounds

Isaac Chamberlain vs. Dylan Bregeon –  cruiserweight – 6 rounds

Friday, June 16 – The Heal Complex, Augusta, Ga.

Nico Hernandez vs. Ernesto Irias –  flyweight – 8 rounds

Lateef Kayode vs. Chad Davis –  heavyweight – 4 rounds

Gordie Russ II vs. Desmond Green –  junior middleweight – 4 rounds

Friday, June 16 – Lienzo Charro de Aragón, Mexico City

Saturday, June 17 – Smoothie King Center, New Orleans

Regis Prograis vs. Danielito Zorrilla – junior welterweight – 12 rounds

The long-awaited homecoming bout of Prograis defending his belt should put the entire division on notice after the amazing Josh Taylor-Teofimo Lopez undisputed championship bout in NY. If Lopez is serious about his early retirement, Prograis may be well on his way to become the division’s new top man.

Also on this card:

Shakhram Giyasov vs. Harold Calderon – welterweight – 12 rounds

Ramla Ali vs. Julissa Alejandra Guzman –  women’s junior featherweight – 10 rounds

Aaron Aponte vs. Xavier Madrid –  junior welterweight – 8 rounds

Saturday, June 17 – Gold Coast Convention Center, Gold Coast, Australia

Tim Tszyu vs. Carlos Ocampo – junior middleweight – 12 rounds

Tszyu lost a lot of time trying to lure Jermell Charlo into a title bout, and is now holding an “interim” version of an alphabet soup belt while he waits for the big fights that surely await him.

Also on this card:

Sam Goodman vs. Ra’eese Aleem – junior featherweight – 12 rounds

Justin Frost vs. Hassan Hamdan –  junior welterweight – 10 rounds
