Friday, August 4 – Overtime Elite Arena, Atlanta  

Elijah Pierce vs. Mike Plania – junior featherweight – 8 rounds

A new format for boxing matches that promises plenty of controversy starts with this card. You’ll have to check out Joe Santoliquito’s article for more info on that. Provocative, to say the least.

Also on this card:

Oshae Jones vs. Miranda Barber – women’s junior middleweight – 8 rounds

Gabriel Muratalla vs. Edwin Rodriguez – bantamweight – 6 rounds

Haven Brady Jr. vs. Andre Rodriguez – lightweight – 6 rounds

Kendrick Ball Jr. vs. Oscar Riojas – light heavyweight – 8 rounds

Sean Bey vs. Quintin Sumpter – heavyweight – 8 rounds


Saturday, August 5- American Airlines Center, Dallas

Jake Paul vs. Nate Diaz – cruiserweight – 10 rounds

This week’s biggest boxing card is headlined by two non-boxers, one may say. They will, though, get in the ring and do their thing. Paul, of course, is the YouTuber-turned-boxing mogul, and Diaz is a former MMA artist trying to make real money in the non-monopolized realm of combat sports. I say break a leg, gents. Seriously.

Amanda Serrano vs. Heather Hardy – women’s featherweight – 10 rounds

Serrano is one of women’s boxing all-time greats, in case you’ve been living under a rock and didn’t know that already. This Ring championship defense is not the most glamorous defense possible but it should be awesome to see her in action anyway.

Also on this card:

Shadasia Green vs. Olivia Curry – female super middleweight – 10 rounds

Ashton Sylve vs. William Silva – lightweight – 8 rounds

Chris Avila vs. Jeremy Stephens – super middleweight – 8 rounds

Alan Sanchez vs Angel Beltran Villa – welterweight – 8 rounds

Kevin Newman vs. Quilisto Madera – super middleweight – 8 rounds

Where to watch it: DAZN PPV


Saturday, August 5 – Fadil Vokrri Stadium, Pristina, Kosovo

Wednesday, August 9 – Whitesands Events Center, Plant City, Fla.

Otar Eranosyan vs. Roger Gutierrez – junior lightweight – 12 rounds

Eranosyan will try to remain unbeaten in this trial-by-fire of a crossroads bout. A real talent to watch and to follow as he moves up the ranks.

Also on this card:

Petros Ananyan vs. Cristian Baez – welterweight – 10 rounds

Tristan Armand Gallichan vs. Ryan Schwartzberg – junior welterweight – 4 rounds

Dante Concepcion vs. Luis Vega Sanchez – welterweight – 4 rounds
