Boxing TV Schedule: Week of October 15-21
Corrales' last out was a technical decision victory over Robinson Castellanos on July 15.

WBA Super World super featherweight titleholder Jezreel Corrales (22-1, 8 KOs) faces Alberto Machado (18-0, 15 KOs), who is ranked #4…

Gabriel Rosado vs. Glen Tapia; Alejandro Barrera vs. Keandre Gibson

Rosado (23-11, 13 KOs) is coming off of a split-decision loss to England’s Martin Murray in April. Tapia (23-4, 15 KOs) is coming off of three back-to-back losses, two by stoppage. Both fighters have names that are known by fans, and it’ll probably be an action-oriented fight.

Barrera (29-3, 18 KOs) won a split decision in July over Eddie Gomez. One fight prior, Barrera was stopped by Errol Spence. Gibson (17-1, 7 KOs) was last seen in June defeating Dennis Dauti by unanimous decision, but one fight earlier lost by stoppage to Antonio Orozco. This should be an entertaining crossroads type of fight.

Ryan Burnett vs. Zhanat Zhakiyanov

Burnett (17-0, 9 KOs) is the IBF bantamweight world champion, facing WBA bantamweight super world champion Zhakiyanov (27-1, 18 KOs). Burnett is coming off an impressive decision win over Lee Haskins in June, while Zhakiyanov’s last bout was a February split decision win over Rau’shee Warren. Both fighters are quality, so this should be an engaging bout.

9:30pm ET/6:30pm PT - ITV (UK), Audience Network (US)
Murat Gassiev vs. Krzysztof Wlodarczyk

The next installment of the World Boxing Super Series tournament sees 24-year-old Gassiev (24-0, 17 KOs) squaring off against 36-year-old Wlodarczyk (53-3, 37 KOs). Gassiev is the IBF cruiserweight world champion whose last fight was a tough decision against Denis Lebedev last December. Wlodarczyk’s last bout was a split decision win against then-undefeated Noel Gevor in May. This should be a fascinating mash-up of age and experience levels.

10:05pm ET/7:05pm PT - HBO
Jezreel Corrales vs. Alberto Machado; Demetrius Andrade vs. Alantez Fox

WBA Super World super featherweight titleholder Corrales (22-1, 8 KOs) faces Machado (18-0, 15 KOs), who is ranked #4 in the division by the WBA. Corrales’ last out was a technical decision over Robinson Castellanos in July, while Machado was last in the ring in August, winning a decision over Carlos Morales. Both boxers come to fight.

Andrade (24-0, 16 KOs) faces Fox (23-0, 11 KOs) in Andrade’s first official fight at middleweight (moving up from light middleweight). Fox has been competing at 160 since 2013. Facing an undefeated fighter in his first bout at a new weight is a tall order, but Andrade’s level of opposition has been quite good through most of his career, so it’s likely not asking too much of him. This should be a fun and telling bout for both boxers.

    Boxing should put boxer to Big Data Analysis (fastest puncher, punch power by square inch, pulse rate, bench press leverage, 2hands speed) and could give better pound per pound analysis.

    Crossing Event should give weekly Pay Per View Event than the one and only major fight.

    Braekhus and Lauren thought they heard someone say something about getting a room when it actually was all about getting into the ring! Which reminds 147….154…160 is all so much phony shit….Spence can get all the action he wants at 154!
