11/6 – Manny Siaca (25-8, 2 KO’s) vs. Rohan Murdock (16-1, 13 KO’s) – Jupiters Hotel & Casino, Broadbeach, Queensland, Australia
Siaca’s been in the world-class picture for some time, but hasn’t always had the best success. He had a short reign as the WBA super middleweight champion amid a number of world title challenge losses. He’s faced some of the top fighters in the world, but hasn’t had a significant win in some time. Based in Australia, Murdock’s run up an impressive record on paper, and looks to use Siaca as a stepping-stone to get to the next level.

11/7 – Ricardo Williams Jr. (22-3, 12 KO’s) vs. TBA – Horseshoe Casino, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA
The former US Olympian has only fought once since 2012, and in one of the headliners in a scheduled eight rounder.
11/8 – Fernando Montiel (52-4-2, 39 KO’s) vs. Sergio Puente (15-0, 6 KO’s) – Gimnasio Nuevo León, Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico
The former three division world champion looks for his seventh consecutive win when he steps in with the undefeated Puente, a former WBC silver super featherweight champ who’s beaten a “couple” of decent fighters in another wise unimpressive resume.
11/8 – Ty Cobb (18-5, 10 KO’s) vs. Marcus Rhode (35-50-2, 29 KO’s) II – Remington Park, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA
Cobb gets mention simply because he shares a name with the legendary baseball pitcher. This fight is a rematch; in January of 2013 Cobb stopped Rhode in two rounds. Rhode’s been in with fighters of all levels, and was also Tommy Morrison’s first post-HIV opponent.
11/8 – Trey Lippe (5-0, 5 KO’s) vs. Tim Bronson (2-2, 1 KO) – Remington Park, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA
Speaking of Tommy Morrison, Lippe is the son of “The Duke”, and looks to be starting his pro career in similar fashion to his father, building his skills on the local circuit. Four of his five bouts have ended in the first round. Bronson’s been stopped in both of his losses, so he’s a perfect fit.
11/8 – Amir Mansour (20-1, 15 KO’s) vs. Fred Kassi (18-2, 10 KO’s) – Sands Casino Resort, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA
Mansour comes in off a fight of the year caliber match with Steve Cunningham, where he nearly stopped the former world champion before dropping a 12 round decision. In his come back fight he faces Kassi, who’s fought just once in the last two years, but has won his last three inside the distance. The contest headlines NBC’s Fight Night program.
11/8 – Diego Magdaleno (26-1, 10 KO’s) vs. Hevinson Herrera (17-9-1, 11 KO’s) – Events Center, Pharr, Texas, USA
The former NABF super featherweight champ looks for his fourth straight win after a close defeat to Roman Martinez in a challenge for the WBO world title last year. Herrera comes in off two wins this year after taking two losses in 2012 and being inactive for over two years.
11/12 – Lenny Zappavigna (32-2, 22 KO’s) vs. Misael Castillo (26-3, 24 KO’s) – Hisense Arena, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Lenny Zappa defends the WBO Oriental light welterweight title, and comes in off seven straight wins since taking back-to-back defeats in 2011. Castillo has impressive numbers, and a few familiar names on his ledger, but hasn’t done anything at the upper level just yet.
11/12 – Anthony Mundine (46-6, 27 KO’s) vs. Sergey Rabcheno (25-0, 18 KO’s) – Hisense Arena, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
“The Man” isn’t taking any easy picking when he faces Rabchenko for the WBC Silver light middleweight title. The former three-division world champion retired a faded Shane Mosley, and most recently lost a wide decision to Joshua Clottey. Rabchenko isn’t just the WBC silver champ, but also holds the EBU title in the same weight class. He holds wins over some top European fighters; this is his first fight in a year.
11/12 – Lucas Browne (21-0, 18 KO’s) vs. Chauncey Welliver (55-8-5, 22 KO’s) – Hisense Arena, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
After picking up a pair of wins in the U.K., “Big Daddy” returns home to defend his WBC Eurasia Pacific Boxing Council heavyweight title for the second time this year. Welliver’s held a number of regional titles, but has limited experience at the top level of the division.
