Fight Night Program – Week of Sept. 22-27

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, September 22  – Korakuen Hall, Tokyo

Hiroto Kyoguchi  vs. Jerven Mama – flyweight – 12 rounds

After losing to one of the best fighters in boxing today, Hiroto Kyoguchi moved up in weight class and starts his journey towards a new title shot against trialhorse Jerven Mama.

Also on this card:

Suzumi Takayama vs. Tsubasa Murachi – junior bantamweight – 10 rounds

Kotaro Sekine  vs. Reiji Kodama  – junior welterweight – 10 rounds

Friday, Sept. 22 – Guasave, Sinaloa

Leobardo Lopez Alvarez  vs. Rogelio Romero Garcia – junior flyweight – 10 rounds

Pedro Delgado Gaytan vs. Angel Meza Morales – flyweight – 10 rounds


Saturday, September 23 – Wembley Arena, London  

Zhilei Zhang vs. Joe Joyce – heavyweight – 12 rounds

High-stakes rematch in London. Joyce’s career could possibly resist another loss, but not another stoppage loss. Another win by Zhang could propel him to more legitimate title bouts in the future, turning him into a superstar in one of boxing’s largest untapped markets. An interesting fight to see, from all possible angles.

Also on this card:

Anthony Yarde vs. Jorge Silva – light heavyweight – 10 rounds

Pierce O’Leary vs. Kane Gardner – junior welterweight – 10 rounds

Sam Noakes vs. Carlos Perez – lightweight – 10 rounds

Zach Parker vs. Khalid Graidia – super middleweight – 10 rounds

Where to watch it: ESPN+


Saturday, September 23 – Caribe Royale, Orlando, Fla.  

Richardson Hitchins vs. Jose Zepeda – junior welterweight – 10 rounds

Rising star Richardson Hitchins will be in a great position to have his Haitian fan base in Florida supporting him in this tough quest to remain unbeaten against a Mexican contender fixated on getting one more title shot after three failed attempts. A textbook definition of a “crossroads bout.” Should be pretty great.

Also on this card:

Jessica McCaskill vs. Sandy Ryan – women’s welterweight – 10 rounds

Austin Williams vs. Steve Rolls – middleweight – 12 rounds

Orestes Velazquez vs. Mohamed Soumaoro – junior welterweight – 10 rounds
