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.

Here are this week’s most relevant fights:

Friday, July 21 – Double Tree Hotel, Ontario, Calif.

Louie Lopez vs. Benjamin Lamptey –  welterweight – 8 rounds

George Kambosos Jr. vs. Maxi Hughes –  lightweight – 12 rounds

Tuesday, July 25 – Ariake Arena, Tokyo

Stephen Fulton vs. Naoya Inoue –  junior featherweight – 12 rounds

“The Monster” is on a search-and-destroy mission to rake in as many world titles as he can, and this assault on the 122-pound division is part of that effort. WBC/WBO titlist Fulton is not the prohibitive underdog that people think he is, and Inoue’s debut in this division will come against a very live underdog. A must-watch, just like every Inoue fight.

Robeisy Ramirez vs. Satoshi Shimizu –  featherweight – 12 rounds

Ramirez’s defense of his WBO featherweight title in Japan is a calculated risk to turn the Cuban former amateur standout into a bonafide international star. Just as it is the case with every other risk calculated by the Top Rank brass, it should work just fine.

Also on this card:

Yoshiki Takei vs. Ronnie Baldonado –  junior featherweight – 8 rounds

Taiga Imanaga vs. Hebi Marapu –  lightweight – 8 rounds

Kanamu Sakama vs. Ryu Horikawa –  junior flyweight – 8 rounds

Wednesday, July 26 – Kissimmee Civic Center, Kissimmee, Fla.  

Orlando Gonzalez vs. Ramiro Cesena –  junior lightweight – 10 rounds

Mohammed Mimoune vs. Steven Galeano –  junior welterweight – 10 rounds

Where to watch it: ProBox TV


Wednesday, July 26: Sydney, Australia

Tayla Harris vs. Millicent Agboegbulen –  women’s junior middleweight – 8 rounds

An interesting main event in an all-women’s card in a country that is on the surge in the production of female fighters. Harris is overdue for a title shot and a win in this fight could put her on a path towards that goal – and beyond.

Ella Boot vs. Annie Thatcher – women’s junior welterweight – 8 rounds

Angel Rushton vs. Jaala Tomat –  women’s junior lightweight – 6 rounds

Tywarna Campbell vs. Natasha Kurene –  women’s junior lightweight – 6 rounds
