Live Boxing this Week – Curiel vs Nontshinga II and Foster vs Nova

Live Boxing this week returns with four shows all airing across Thursday and Friday night. The original date for Fury vs Usyk was this Saturday but has now been rescheduled for three months time. It means there’s no Saturday boxing, but luckily Friday is pretty stacked.

This week we have cards from Golden Boy, ProBox TV, Matchroom Boxing and Top Rank. Matchroom are hosting boxing in Mexico, whilst Top Rank take to New York, Golden Boy head to California and ProBox head to Florida. There is no televised UK boxing this week, and no major UK card for the rest of the month.

Here is the Live Boxing This Week:

15 Feb📅Joseph Diaz Jr. vs Jesus Perez
16 Feb📅Foster vs Nova

16 Feb📅Israel Picazo vs Ramon Cardenas
16 Feb📅Curiel vs Nontshinga

Joseph Diaz Jr. vs Jesus Perez

Golden Boy promotions return for their third show of 2024 following on from Ortiz vs Lawson and Munguia vs Ryder in January. This Fight Night show is smaller than the previous two shows but does feature some good bouts. Ricardo Sandoval vs Jayson Mama could be a show stealer in the Flyweight division. Diaz vs Perez could prove to be competitive with the fighters sharing 9 losses between them, and both in need of a rebuild following a series of losses.

O’ Shaquie Foster vs Abraham Nova

O’ Shaquie Foster defends his WBC Featherweight championship for the second time, having picked up a TKO in round 12 in his defence vs Eduardo Hernandez. Abraham Nova has only lost to Robeisy Ramirez and has considerable punching power compared to the champion. It should make for an interesting clash in styles.

Adrian Curiel vs Sivenathi Nontshinga

Adrian Curiel vs Sivenathi Nontshinga is a rematch from last year. Curiel picked up a shocking KO over the South African Nontshinga to pick up the IBF Light Flyweight title. Mauricio Lara vs Daniel Lugo features on the undercard. Lara competes for the first time since losing his WBA title due to missing a checkweight, then losing to Leigh Wood despite a weight advantage.
