GGG is back in the headline fight of the week.

Friday, June 7

ESPN+, 6:00 pm ET, Valdez-Sanchez weigh-in. The people on the card look to make weight. Will they? We’ll see! BLH will have live coverage.

Saturday, June 8

ESPN+, 6:30 pm ET, Valdez-Sanchez prelims. The usual stuff, some prospects in action, Michael Seals vs Christopher Brooker. BLH will have live coverage.

DAZN, 7:00 pm ET, Gennadiy Golovkin vs Steve Rolls. GGG is back with new trainer Johnathon Banks for his first fight since last September’s rematch loss to Canelo Alvarez. Steve Rolls is … a man. Unbeaten, 35-year-old Canadian. Was on nobody’s radar. The fight is meant to be a showcase, and will be held at a 164-pound catchweight. The undercard has nothing to get super excited about, either, but it’ll have some prospects in action. BLH will have live coverage.

ESPN, 10:00 pm ET, Oscar Valdez vs Jason Sanchez. Well, it’s, uh, another one. I mean, when we heard Valdez would be back on this date, after GGG-Rolls was announced, it was, like, “Hey, cool, an alternative.” But then it was going to be Erick Ituarte, except someone forgot to grease the wheels and get Ituarte ranked by the WBO. So instead it’s Jason Sanchez. Look I’d be more up for complaining but I just saw Andy Ruiz Jr beat Anthony Joshua so what the hell do I know? And Valdez, like GGG, is generally worth watching just because he’s entertaining. Lightweight prospect Gabriel Flores Jr will be in the co-feature. BLH will have live coverage.
