Daniel Jacobs returns to HBO and much more this week in boxing.
Friday, November 10
SHO, 10:00 pm ET, Luis Rosa vs Yuandale Evans. This is a quadrupleheader edition of ShoBox: The New Generation. The other three fights are Radzhab Butaev vs Janer Gonzalez, Junior Fa vs Fred Latham, and Charles Conwell vs Roque Zapata. BLH will have live coverage.
Saturday, November 11
BT Sport / BoxNation (UK), 1:55 pm ET, Liam Smith vs Liam Williams. These two fought back in April, with Smith winning a stoppage after the ninth round due to cuts on Williams’ right eye. So they’re doing it again, as it was a highly competitive fight, with Williams ahead 86-85 on all three scorecards.
Channel 5 (UK), 4:45 pm ET, Josh Taylor vs Miguel Vazquez. An interesting matchup. Vazquez is a former lightweight titleholder, and this is for the WBC “silver” junior welterweight title. Taylor is a terrific prospect, but Vazquez is a tricky veteran, plus he’s younger than you might think at 30. He’s not washed up or anything, and he’s made for hard nights against a lot of fighters.
HBO, 10:00 pm ET, Daniel Jacobs vs Luis Arias. Jacobs returns to HBO airwaves for his first fight under the Matchroom banner, taking on an unbeaten underdog in the middleweight main event. Heavyweight Jarrell Miller makes his HBO debut against Mariusz Wach, and Cletus Seldin faces Roberto Ortiz on the undercard. BLH will have live coverage.
ESPN, 10:30 pm ET, Jose Ramirez vs Mike Reed, Artur Beterbiev vs Enrico Koelling. Ramirez is the draw in Fresno, so he’s in the main event. This is kinda-sorta part of a WBC mini tournament at 140 to fill their title vacancy. Beterbiev-Koelling is for the vacant IBF light heavyweight title. BLH will have live coverage.
