With it being such a busy day lets start with the most important bout of the weekend, Derrick Chisora (17-4, 11) against Edmund Gerber (23-1, 14). A bout seen by some as an unofficial "title eliminator" and seen as others as a mismatch of the highest order, it's certainly a bout that splits opinion.
Chisora, fresh off the back of his victory over Malik Scott will know that a victory is expected of him against Gerber, a man looking more and more like a "built up stiff", Gerber however does posses solid power and will know that a victory here could leap frog him into contention. Expect this one to have a genuinely interesting feel, depending on which Gerber, and which Chisora, actually show up.
Staying in the UK, where Chisora/Gerber will be taking place, there is also "the battle of Carl's" as Carl Spencer (3-0, 3) takes on Carl Baker (9-6, 6). Baker, dubbed "The Fridge" is best known for his victory in "Prizefighter" against Danny Williams, unfortunately other than that his only other claim to fame was being kissed by the aforementioned Chisora prior to their bout.
The final UK bout appears to feature Welshman Dorian Darch (7-1, 1) though his opponent is yet to be named so his fight may have fallen through.
The European Heavyweight action isn't just limited to the UK though with action in Germany, Ukraine and the Netherlands.
Starting in Germany we will see Ali Ibrahim Kujaschewski (6-0, 6) attempt to continue his impressive looking, though actually not impressive, start to his career. Having faced opponents with a combined record of 1-15 so far, it will come as no shock to hear that Kujaschewski in a "gimme" as he takes on the win-less Manuel Reuss (0-5). On the same show we expect to see Robert Teuber (8-0, 7), though his opponent is yet to be named. Sadly we'd not be shocked if Teuber is actually facing an opponent like Reuss as well.
In Ukraine the promising Vladimir Tereshkin (16-0-1, 7) will be attempting to continue his unbeaten run as he takes on Hungarian journeyman Laszlo Toth (19-9, 13) whilst on the same show Ivan Tkachenko (0-0) and Maksym Nedashkovskyy (0-0) feature in an all debutant battle.
The final European bout of note sees Samir Ben Azzouz (0-0) making his debut in the Netherlands. As with several fighters fighting in Europe his opponent has yet to be named.
In the US the action comes thick and fast, in fact there is so much action that the idea of their being "no US Heavyweights" is still one that has us confused.
The most notable bout sees unbeaten pairing collide as Vincent Thompson (13-0, 2) faces the hard hitting Charles Martin (9-0-1, 8) in what appears to be a boxer-versus-puncher match up. With the bout being in Washington we favour Thompson but Martin does seem to have power and could well change the fight around with one good punch. On the same card Yohan Banks (6-8-3, 4) fights Tim Puller (20-6, 11) in what should serve as a nice warm up for the main action.
Whilst Thompson/Martin is the best bout stateside, it's not the only bout worth taking an interest in as the promising Aaron Green (12-0, 10) returns to the ring for his fifth contest this year. Green will be looking for his fourth straight stoppage as he takes on the experienced Marcus Rhode (35-48-2, 29), a fighter with respectable power if he can connect. We expect Green to come though this though we are following his career closely now.
In New York we get another interesting match up as the unbeaten Evan Nedd (5-0, 2) battles Olympian Ytalo Perea (4-1, 3). Perea, who was upset by Avery Gibson last month, will be looking to bounce back from his first professional loss and knows anything but a win here could see him cast on a heap of "Olympic Failures" that also includes Audley Harrison and Robert Wells.
North Carolina plays host to a double header of Heavyweight action with the main event seeing the one time prospect Travis Kauffman (25-1, 18) facing journeyman Stacy Frazier (15-14, 14) and the debuting Robert De Leon (0-0) fighting Orion Bolds (0-3).
The number of fighters keeps going up when you throw in Nathan Luis Rosa (0-0) who takes on John Schimon (1-1), Eric Newell (7-2-1, 5) fighting Jamal Woods (3-8-1, 3) and the fact Terrance Dumas (3-0, 2), Skipp Scott (16-1, 10) and Darlington Agha (9-0, 6) are all also expectd to be in action!
The day doesn't even end there and we also expect action in Brazil as Leonardo De Moura (5-9, 5) and Matheus Roberto Ozorio (3-0, 3) are in action. Unfortunately these two explosive punchers haven't been matched against each other in what could have made for an interesting All-Brazilian battle.
