Most of the day's Heavyweight action is in the US where almost all the notable action takes place.
The biggest bout of the day is sadly little more than a stay busy fight as the highly regarded Deontay Wilder (31-0, 31) takes on journeyman Jason Gavern (25-16-4, 11). Whilst we don't blame Wilder for taking a "stay busy" fight this is unfortunately very similar to his previous 31 bouts and we feel more anger at him getting a world title fight than actually having this bout. Funny world this boxing business. On the same card as this bout Dominic Breazeale (11-0, 10) will be fighting against veteran Billy Zumbrun (27-13-1-1, 16) in another bout that makes little sense for the unbeaten man, other than to pad his record.
In North Carolina Ray Edwards (7-0, 4), the Minnesota Viking's NFL player, will be fighting against the debuting Djaun Hughey (0-0). Edwards looks to be a boxing fraud and match ups like this continue to develop that idea. On the same card Chris Hancock (7-0, 3) will be in action though his opponent hasn't been named, sadly though we're not getting a bout between Edwards and Hancock, that one would have made sense.
One more US bout will see Trey Lippe (3-0, 3), the son of Tommy Morrison, attempt to extend his winning run.
In a very, very low level bout in Argentina fans will get the chance to see the win-less Juan Enrique Hidalgo (0-1) battle the debuting Cristian Suarez (0-0). Hard to say much about this one given the men involved but hopefully it'll be competitive and not a blow out either way.
It's not just the Argentinian's getting low level Heavyweight action because in Canada fans will get the chance to see Ty McDougall (2-4-2, 1) take on Chad Neilson (1-3, 1). Whilst little is really know about these two neither man tends to take a shot particularly well so this may be over early.
Another low level bout, though a more interesting one, will see Renato Blitz (2-0, 1) battle against fellow unbeaten Martin Edelmann (2-0, 1). We favour Croatia's Blitz's but this is a notable test for both men given the early stages of their career.
Yet another low level and less than exciting bout will see Ben Wrotniak (5-1, 1) battling against Wlodzimierz Letr (2-3, 1). We've got to concede this is one we're struggling to care about, especially given hat Wrotniak lost last time out to Oscar Siale.
