The most interesting contest is in New York as Eric Fields (22-2, 16) battles the usually testing Jonte Willis (9-6-1, 3). Although neither man is ever going to be a world beater Fields is a solid professional and Willis is a tough man to beat, as proven in his controversial losses to Denis Bakhtov and Joshua Tufte. This is certainly a C tier bout though by far the most interesting bout in the division over the weekend.
The action in the US continues with a show in Kansas. In fact it's the Kansas show that is arguably the most interesting due to the fact it has 3 Heavyweight contests involved on it. The most interesting contest on the card in regards to the Heavyweight division will see the unbeaten Donnie Palmer (3-0-1, 3) fighting Thomas Jones (1-1). For Palmer this will be his second fight in 8 days whilst Jones will be competing for the first time in over a month.
Alongside the Palmer/Jones bout is a contest between debutants as Cooper Sanders (0-0) battles Eric Lunsford (0-0). Rather interestingly they are just two of three Heavyweight debutants on the card with Brian Imes (0-0) also debuting. Unfortunately for Imes he's up against a man with experience in the form of Charles Ellis (6-1-1, 5), however this will be Ellis's first contest in aroudn 3 years.
The name John McDermott might be familiar to British fans but in the US a similarly named fighter, John L. McDermott IV (3-0, 2), is action this weekend. The unbeaten McDermott will face the win-less Jamell Williams (0-5) in what appears to be little more than an experience building for the unbeaten man.
As well as the US contests we also expect action through out Europe with several countries hosting Heavyweight action.
Recently crowned Belgian Heavyweight champion Ali Baghouz (7-0-1, 4) returns to the ring for the first time since claiming his title. Despite being the Belgian champion Baghouz will not be defending his title as he instead battles busy Hungarian Istvan Ruzsinszky (12-8-1, 8). Despite Ruzsinszky having won 7 of his 10 fights here it's hard to see him taking a victory against Baghouz on this contest.
On a Ukrainian card featuring fringe world title contender Vyacheslav Uzelkov and Olympic gold medal winner Oleksandr Usyk there is action for Ivan Tkachenko (1-0, 1). The unbeaten Tkachenko will fight the win-less Kostyantyn Gavrylov (0-1). Aged 22 and stood at over 6'5" we've got to admit Tkachenko is someone with the physical traits worth taking a note of, even if we've yet to see him in action.
In Germany we expect two more contests. We expect to see Yakup Saglam (29-3, 26) and Michael Stromberg (4-1, 3) both to be in action. Unfortunately we're unsure who either man will be fighting though we're not expect anything too great for either man.
