The stand out bout, and easily the most important, is in Puerto Rico where American fighters collide. In one corner is the unbeaten KO artist Deontay Wilder (30-0, 30) in the other corner will be Wilder's biggest test so far, Malik Scott (36-1-1, 13). On paper this looks like a great match up and it really should tell us a lot about both men. Unfortunately it comes just 8 months after Scott's loss to Dereck Chisora, a loss that saw many questioning Scott's stamina, chin, heart and boxing intellect. If Chisora can drop someone it's fair to assume Wilder can to and in all honesty Wilder should have gotten to Scott before Chisora did.
The other notable bout sees Scott's former opponent Vyacheslav Glazkov (16-0-1, 11) of the Ukraine battling against Poland's mega popular Tomasz Adamek (49-2, 29). This bout, for the IBF's #2 place is a solid match up though one can't help but feel that Adamek is well on the slide and Glazkov should have the skills, youth and size to take a victory here against a popular but shopworn opponent. Glazkov needs a win to make a statement whilst Adamak needs a win to stay relevant in the boxing world making this a really important bout for both men.
Another interesting and unbeaten man is also in action on the same night, albeit in Switzerland. The man in question is Arnold Gjergjaj (23-0, 17) who some have on the verge of the world rankings. Although unbeaten some do view Gjergjaj as being hugely untested, unfortunately this weekend's bout with Argentina's Emilio Ezequiel Zarate (18-12-3, 9) is unlikely to see many changing their minds on the untested part, though should help bolster his impressive record.
Talking about unbeatenmen and Argentinian's there is also action in Argentina involving the popular "El Dogo" Daniel Alejandro Barroso (4-0, 3). Barroso, a huge and powerful looking fighter, is completely untested though some in Argentina are giving the 24 year old some hyping and from watching some vlips of him he does look somewhat promising for such a raw novice. The youngster will be hoping to extend his winning run when he battles the usually tough Ruben Ricardo Ponce (2-10-1) in what is a step up for the youngster.
Staying in Argentina for a moment there is also a bout involving former Cruiserweight champion Marcelo Fabian Dominguez (45-7-1, 24). Dominguez, who is now 44 and fighting solely on the Argentinian domestic circuit, will have to be favoured against Manuel Alberto Pucheta (37-8, 30) though Pucheta does have a punchers chance in the early rounds.
More unbeaten fighters arein action in France as the debuting Mohamed Samoudi (0-0) battles against the unbeaten Mateusz Gatek (1-0) from Poland. The Pole has been brought over to lose though with people at this stage in their careers it's hard to say how good or bad he is.
On the subject of Polish fighters there is actually a couple of Heavyweight bouts in Poland. One of these sees recent WBA title challenger Andrzej Wawrzyk (28-1, 14) fighting multi-time title challenger Frans Botha (48-10-3-1, 29) in an inter-generational bout. This bout amazingly sees a 19 year age difference between the fighters so Both is actually old enough to be Wawrzyk's father!
The other Polish bout will see Marcin Rekowski (12-1, 1) attempt to put his upset loss to Oliver McCall behidn him as he battles the much more limited Mateusz Malujda (4-2-1, 1) in what looks like a "safe" fight for Rekowski.
Back in the US we get two more bouts. One of those, in Boston, sees Donnie Palmer (3-0-1, 3), another unbeaten fighter, battling against the win-less Antonio Assermelly (0-1) in what looks likely to be stoppage victory for Palmer. The other bout, in Augusta, will see Brandon Spencer (1-4-1, 1) fighting against fellow journeyman Ryan Shay (5-16, 4) in what may, oddly, prove to be one of the days most competitive contests.
