8/16 – Yoan Pablo Hernandez (28-1, 14 KO’s) vs. Firat Arslan (34-7-2, 21 KO’s) – Messehalle, Erfurt, Thüringen, Germany
In a scheduled 12 round contest, Hernandez makes the fourth defense of the IBF cruiserweight title. In recent years, his victories have come against top fighters in the division: Steve Herelius, two against Steve Cunningham, and one each over Troy Ross and Alexander Alexeev. Arslan has also fought Herelius and Alexeev, resulting in an 11th round stoppage loss and a draw respectively. Two of his last four contests were losses to Marco Huck in WBO title bouts.
8/16 – Jorge Linares (36-3, 23 KO’s) vs. Ira Terry (26-11, 16 KO’s) – StubHub Center, Carson, California, USA
A one sided win over Nihito Arakawa earlier this year put Linares in line for a shot at the WBC lightweight title. The former featherweight and super featherweight world champion takes a stay busy eight rounder against Tennessee’s Terry, who’s managed just two wins in his last 12 contests.
8/16 – Dominic Breazeale (11-0, 10 KO’s) vs. Billy Zumbrun (27-13-1, 16 KO’s) – StubHub Center, Carson, California
The undefeated US Olympic heavyweight is stepping up his opposition level in small increments. Fighting for the fourth time this year, he faces his most experienced opponent who’s had little success at the upper level but has faced a number of top opponents. Zumbrun won the Utah State heavyweight title a year ago.
8/16 – Hector Camacho Jr. (57-6-1, 31 KO’s) vs. TBA – Carole Heafner Center, Charlotte, North Carolina, USA
Macho Jr. never flourished in the big leagues. Winning a handful of regional titles, he found little success in facing top tier fighters but has managed to stay busy regardless. He faces the ever dangerous TBA, as do the other three fighters scheduled to fight on this card.
