As is annual tradition in the boxing world, this September plays host to a large number of top quality live shows.

Here’s our brief guide to some of the biggest fight cards around the globe this evening:

Khan v Vargas
@ Arena Birmingham : Birmingham, UK
UK: Sky Sports, USA: DAZN

It’s perhaps a bit of a worry that this is how regular Sky Sports cards could look from now on, without the lucrative extra pay-per-view fees of a Box Office show.

Khan’s usually an entertaining watch though, and we’re looking forward to seeing explosive lightweight Lewis Ritson in action again too.  Another one to keep an eye on is the rematch between Welborn and Langford as the fight for they British title again following Welborn’s close split decision win earlier this year.

Amir Khan vs Samuel Vargas – 12 rounds, Welterweight
Sam Eggington vs Hassan Mwakinyo – 10 rounds, Light-Middleweight
Jason Welborn vs Tommy Langford – 12 rounds, British Middleweight
Lewis Ritson vs Oscar Amador – 8 rounds, Lightweight
Scott Fitzgerald vs Craig Morris – 10 rounds, Light-Middleweight

Garcia v Porter
@ Barclays Center : Brooklyn, NY, USA
USA: Showtime, UK: BoxNation

We can’t wait for this one as they look to be perfectly well matched.  They’re both usually attacking fighters too so it should blend nicely for a close and well fought battle.

If Charles Martin has finished “walking the earth like a God”, maybe he can put up a decent effort against 17-0 heavyweight Adam Kownacki in a potentially lively undercard fight.

Danny Garcia vs Shawn Porter – 12 rounds, vacant WBC Welterweight
Yordenis Ugas vs Cesar Miguel Barrionuevo – 12 rounds, Welterweight
Adam Kownacki vs Charles Martin – 10 rounds, Heavyweight

Superfly 3
@ Forum : Inglewood, CA, USA
USA: HBO

It might not be quite as strong as the previous two ‘Superfly’ HBO shows, but the little guys usually bring energy and aggression and it’s great to see the network showcasing an often overlooked weight division once again.

Juan Francisco Estrada vs Felipe Orucuta – 12 rounds, Super Flyweight
Donnie Nietes vs Aston Palicte – 12 rounds, vacant WBO Super Flyweight
Kazuto Ioka vs McWilliams Arroyo – 12 rounds, Super Flyweight
