3/1 – Christina Hammer (16-0, 8 KO’s) vs. Jessica Balogun (23-2, 11 KO’s) – GETEC Arena, Magdeburg, Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany
Germany has had a tradition over the years of turning out some of the world’s top female fighters; Christina Hammer is the latest along that line. The world middleweight champion defends her WBF and WBO world titles for the eighth time on the under card of Steglitz-Abraham II against former two division champion Jessica Balogun, whose only loss since 2008 came against Cecilia Braekhus.
3/1 – James DeGale (17-1, 11 KO’s) vs. Gevorg Khatchikian (20-0, 8 KO’s) – City Academy Sports Centre, Bristol, Avon, United Kingdom
Headlining the show in the U.K., DeGale’s WBC Silver super middleweight title is on the line. The former BBBofC and EBU title holder has won seven straight since his lone, razor thin loss to George Groves in 2011. A former IBO Youth super middleweight title holder, the undefeated Khatchikian is fighting for the first time in a scheduled 12 rounder. He went 10 rounds on one occasion, but hasn’t been past eight in the last three years.
3/1 – Anthony Ogogo (4-0, 2 KO’s) vs. Greg O’Neill (3-1) – Scottish Exhibition Centre, Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom
The undefeated Olympic bronze medalist looks for his third stoppage win when he faces O’Neill in a scheduled six round contest.
3/1 – Anthony Joshua (4-0, 4 KO’s) vs. Hector Alfredo Avila (22-15-1, 14 KO’s) – Scottish Exhibition Centre, Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom
Also on the card is Britain’s Olympic gold medal heavyweight, Joshua takes on his most experienced opponent to date. Avila fights often; win some, lose some. This is his first bout of 2014.
3/1 – Juan Diaz (38-4, 19 KO’s) vs. Gerardo Robles (16-12, 7 KO’s) – Alamodome, San Antonio, Texas
In an untelevised undercard bout on HBO’s Chavez-Vera II card, former lightweight and light welterweight champ Diaz continues the second chapter of his career in a scheduled 10 round contest. Since coming back from a three year hiatus, he’s 3-0 with two stoppage wins. Robles comes in on a two fight losing streak
