We have two great live shows next week
BOXNATION HAS DELIVERED great live boxing in heaps this month. Valentine's Day saw a new star rise in the British lightweight division with Terry Flanagan and this weekend Sammy Vasquez clashed with Emmanuel Lartei Lartey in a hot international card.
What next? On Friday we have another Rainham Steel night of world class international boxing. Ex-interim WBA World Light-Welterweight champ Pablo Cesar Cano faces the Dominican knockout-artist Juan Carlos Abreu. With a height advantage and a preference for hard punching, Abreu will be looking to floor the former world champion and prove his worth.
Also fighting on Friday is 7-foot man-mountain Taishan Dong. The 2(2)-0 Chinese fighter is Golden Boy's loftiest heavyweight prospect and has stated his intention to win all of his fights by knockout - every last one. Time will tell whether or not the ambitious ex-kick boxer will cut it in the ever-unpredictable sport of boxing. Either way, this is a cracker of an undercard to see.
Our Saturday night of action on BoxNation features fighters that have been on the lips and minds of most British boxing pundits since last November - Risky Business. Tyson Fury lights up the press with his boxing and banter.
Recently the new household name Deontay Wilder has been trading twitter shots with the gypsy warrior. Wladimir Klitschko is also on the cards, the Mancunian being mandatory for a WBO World Heavyweight title clash.
In the meantime, Tyson Fury steps forward to battle Christian Hammer in a bout that will put his division ranking on the cards and gamble his world title shot. Will he lose it all or remain on a collision course with world champions Klitschko and Wilder? Fury is adamant that he isn't looking past this fight and that Hammer has proven his worth in his amateur days. There is none of the swagger that we saw in the build-up to Bad Blood, Fury clearly knows what is at stake in this fight.
Chris Eubank Jr also features on Risky Business and in an interim world title fight. He lost his unbeaten record against slick southpaw Billy Joe Saunders by split decision in November, now he is back and hungrier than ever. He fights interim WBA World Middleweight champion Dmitry Chudinov. The Russian may not have the same knockout record as Eubank Jr, but he is undefeated and has been seen to put fighters on their backside.
There is no way this fight can be easily called. Eubank Jr has dived back into the upper tier of his division. He felt hard-done by in losing to Saunders and now the Brighton fighter wants to prove his critics wrong. With this in mind, he probably doesn't intend to leave the result up to the judges next weekend.
Also featuring on the Risky Business show is super-featherweight southpaw Liam Walsh. The 28-year-old fights old rival Joe Murray in a defence of his British and Commonwealth titles. Murray lost to Walsh in their last meeting in 2013, when the pair fought for the vacant WBO International Super-Featherweight Championship as well as Walsh's Commonwealth title. Murray will be coming to this fight with vengeance on his mind - Walsh is the only man to inflict defeat on him in his 16-fight career.
Don't miss out next week, BoxNation is delivering the best in live boxing action for UK and Ireland viewers. The week after Risky Business will see Paul Butler fight for his second world title and Chinese prospect Zou Shiming also feature live on the Channel of Champions.
